Sad News from Jo

Posted by on Apr 21, 2014 in Committee Announcements | 0 comments

Jo Hamilton, our membership secretary writes the following;

“Hello Everybody

It is with deep sadness that I write to say that my special friend Joan Jenkin passed away on Wednesday.  Our thoughts are with John, Jamie and Jonathan at this sad time.  Joan was a lovely person and will be greatly missed


Joan featured in several Players productions when she lived in Barton, most notably as Madame Edith in Allo Allo and Golde in Fiddler on the Roof.  As well as being an excellent performer, Joan also wrote many plays, and we were lucky enough to perform “Home Entertainment” and “Driven Mad” , as well as enjoy Joan’s collaboration with Ann in War to War.
