Eaton Bray WI Report
Posted on November 29, 2007
Our President welcomed the members and two visitors to the November meeting, and our 86th birthday celebration with wine and birthday cake. Three members also had birthdays and received birthday cards.
The business consisted of plans for our Dunstable Group Christmas Evening, in which Eaton Bray will be performing 'our version' of Snow White.
Our vice president will lay a Poppy wreath at Eaton Bray War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday and also place a poppy cross on the Edlesborough memorial.
We will be supporting Luton Woman's Refuge as our Christmas charity, and items for this will be required at the December meeting.
With business finished we welcomed our guest speaker Rusty Goffe who spoke to us about his lifetime in show business. Rusty was born a dwarf and explained that there is still no medical explanation why this happens; adding that his brother is over six feet tall and both parents were a normal height. After leaving school, Rusty's ambition was to go into show business and he joined a band show performing at the end of Southsea Pier. On entering a talent competition, he was invited to join a variety show in London and worked in many of the West End theatres. Rusty started to audition for films in 1970 and landed his first film part in "Willy Wonker and the Chocolate Factory"; he went on to work alongside Hollywood stars in film blockbusters "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter". Also having roles in the TV comedies " 'Allo 'Allo" and "Are You Being Served?" Rusty is currently working in a Saturday morning children's TV show, and will shortly be performing in his thirty seventh pantomime - but alas not in our area.
Our next meeting is on 3rd December at 7.30pm in Eaton Bray Village Hall members and friends are always very welcome.
