Prescription for Murder PosterThe Llanfairfechan Community Players will be performing their play, “Prescription For Murder”, this week on Thurs, Fri, Sat, Aug 18, 19, 20, in the institute starting at 7.30 pm. Tickets £8 (£7 concessions) available at the door or by phoning 01248 680109.
“all the best thrillers have their fair share of humour, just as every comedy should have an element of tragedy and the assured comic touch of Norman Robbins is present here………this is a good little thriller that I expect will prove to be a popular choice with amateur theatres” – Amateur Stage March 2010
Thanks to those of you who have already booked their tickets. Hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend and do bring a friend or two along with you.
By the way, just to set things straight, as one or two people have been under the misapprehension that we are performing one of our evenings of murder and mystery, which involve food and drink. This NOT the case.
We are performing a full play with an interval when you can have a cuppa and biscuit.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Crowdfunding appeal to help fund new showers for village football club

Chrissie O’Hagan has launched a JustGiving appeal for donations to raise £500, to provide new shower facilities for the Llanfairfechan Town Football Club. She says:

Llanfairfechan football club is a treasured resource in our village. We offer training, support and fun for our children and senior teams. The club has been running since 1870. All helpers are volunteers. Unfortunately our changing room needs upgrading and our boiler is broken so we have no showers. We are desperately trying to raise money to buy a new boiler to enable the players to have hot showers after their games. We would be so grateful for any donations. Every little helps Thank You”
