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.

For those members who know Margaret and Neil Davis it is with great sadness that we have to tell you that Neil lost his fight with cancer and died this week surrounded by his family .

Margaret and Neil have been a source of huge energy and inspiration to Barton Players since they moved to the village 20 years ago, as well as great personal friends to many of us.

Neil was a familiar face at Summer School when the whole family were involved, greeting everyone each morning, and he took part in many plays, supporting Margaret when she was busy directing musicals and pantomimes. They have always been a powerful team and Neil will be sadly missed. Our thoughts are with Margaret and the rest of the family.

For those who wish to attend the funeral it will be at Barton Methodist Church at 2pm on Monday 9th December. Please use Barton Rovers car park rather than parking in Sharpenhoe Road. Jo has sent a card on behalf of Barton Players but for anyone who wishes to send their own, please contact Debbie if you do not have Margaret’s address.
