THIS week Cllr Graham Heatley funded an arts production at Elton Community Centre, Cheshire.
The event raised about £400 and was so successful that the company, Rural Touring Arts, are planning another event in May next year.
Cllr Graham Heatley, said: “It was a marvellous evening which was enjoyed by more than 70 people.”
He continued: “Volunteers from Elton Community Centre helped make this event happen and I would like to thank them for their hard work.”
Elton Primary School pupils decorated the community centre, in the run-up to the event, with World War One poppies and the Union Jack.
Christine Leith, from Elton Community Centre Committee, said: “I would like to thank Councillor Graham Heatley and Council Officer Sarah Dobbins for providing funds and valuable information, which enabled us to bring live professional theatre to Elton.”
The company, which has just announced that they will have funding for a further three years from Arts Council England, will perform again on Saturday May 9 with a piece they call Those Magnificent Men.
The play will be about the adventures of Capt. John Alcock and Llft. Arthur Whitten Brown
