Play-itt celebrates in green

Playitt patrons on March 14 were resplendent in green for St Patrick’s Day, and the Irish persuasion was reflected in much of the musical content.

Winners Terry and Shirl.
Winners Terry and Shirl.

“Wild Irish Rose”, “Whiskey In the Jar”, Mountains of Mourne”, “Danny Boy” and “Athen Rye” were just some of the offerings.

We had a visit from the Woodford Singers who are always a delight, and are currently seeking, and would welcome, new members to bulk out their thinning numbers these days.

The highlight of the evening was a rousing and robust presentation in both verse and song of The Dubliners “McAlpine’s Fusiliers” from Lindsay, really capturing the essence of the gathering… Superb work! Winners of the dress-ups were Jordie, Terry and Shirley.

Playitt 21st March 2024 was a test run of a revised format for streamlining the flow of performers to and from the stage with a pleasing result.

Throwing out a challenge: come up with an Easter related song or costume for Thursday, March 28, Woodford Bowls Club 6.30pm. Free entry.
