Prospects for picnickers at this summer’s outdoor plays at Lytham Hall are looking bright thanks to the hard work of a special squad of volunteers.
Following the winter rains the flooded north lawn at Lytham Hall was much in need of some care and attention and this has now been provided by a willing posse of workers organised by Sue Lowe, coordinator of Volunteers at the Hall.
Julian Wilde, organiser of the four play outdoor season, feels that the pay-off for the team’s efforts will come in the summer.
“Removing wet leaves from a sodden lawn is not the world’s most appealing job, but the team of ladies got stuck in and did a superb job, working very hard all morning. The March sunshine is helping the grass to dry out and it should be in excellent condition for those who come with a picnic before the plays.”
The open air theatre season will begin with a visit from Chapterhouse Theatre Company who will present Emily Brontë’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ on Sunday 12 June.
Sue Lowe praised the efforts of all the volunteers who give their time to work at Lytham Hall on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
“Whatever the Volunteers are asked to do, they respond with great enthusiasm. Whether it is making paths, clearing rhododendrons or working to improve the lawns and gardens, they always display excellent team work and determination. Their work is very much appreciated.”
