March acting group puts on several shows in March town centre, raising �100 for charity
THE March Mummers performed at several locations in March town centre and met the creator of their play on Saturday.
Mike Herring, from Peterborough, came over to watch the acting group put on the short play, which he wrote in 1968, at Georges, The Acre and The Ship.
The six performers were accompanied by musicians, Keith and Karen Cheale and Alan Roberts and raised �100 for Mencap.
Mr Herring enjoyed the production so much he wants to organise a reunion of the original performers next year.
He said: “I really enjoyed seeing the play performed again.

Kathy Cornell, one of the collectors accompanying the performers, said: “I have told Margaret Oaty of the Fenland Branch of Mencap about how much we have raised and she is delighted.
