It’s been a week of all things love…along with more meetings and nights out, oh and not forgetting the drugs bust with the armed police.
Meetings galore this past week. There was a suggestion a while back that we should have one day a week when there are no meetings, we put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on the door and rope in one of the volunteers to be our gate-keeper to steer the random visitors elsewhere.
I well remember 8 March 2018, I was the last one to leave the theatre not long after the snowfall started. It was the day I ended up abandoning my car and trudging home knee deep in the white stuff.
It’s been a Bassett’s sort of week as we moved from one year to the next.
What do you think of uni-sex loos? I’ve touched on this topic before, always with a pair of Marigolds on, personally I don’t like them. However, if the Pilot Boat had them, then there would have been no need for an apology to the town clerk. More about that later.
Winter proper arrived in Dorset this week; there were reports of snow fall in Toller Porcorum (I saw the video evidence) and the following day in Dorchester. I wonder how many people rushed to the bookies to place a bet for a white Christmas…is that still a thing or do gamblers do it all online now?
You’ve been wondering haven’t you? Go on, you were just a little bit curious about this week’s embargo given the previous week was the huge announcement about Sir Ian McKellen coming to the Marine. Anyway, remember that hunch I had, the one about the weather?
The embargo was finally lifted this week. There were only 3 of us who knew but now the secret is out.
Winter made a grand entrance this week; it wasn’t just the clocks going back an hour to Greenwich Mean Time but right on cue we had some incredibly cold nights resulting in icy windscreens the following morning. Of course I didn’t have to worry about that because I no longer have a car
We had not one but two big announcements this week. Our first one was to cut the cost of our Box Office booking fee. The other big event was opening the theatre’s own Box Office on Wednesday morning so people could buy tickets from us with NO BOOKING FEE AT ALL!
