Local residents were appalled to learn on Friday evening of the brutal murder of the reverend Martin Peacock, vicar of Kintewardine, bling and sports car enthusiast, by none other than Brenda Buffton, Chairperson of the Parochial Council. Not that many of the assembled company in the Leintwardine Centre last Friday were able to guess whodunnit, despite the plethora of clues scattered about the place like pheasant bits on the A4113. The solutions offered by the different teams at last proved one thing: that some people have VERY strange imaginations. The only person universally agreed not to have done it was Patrick Orton, but then he was the emcee for the evening so it wasn’t that surprising.
The Murder Mystery evening (for that is what it was – hands up those of you who thought the above was true) was deemed a great success by all who attended, with the Leintwardine players turning in their customary polished performance and the kitchen stalwarts of Hilary Leslie and Marjorie Turner providing a splendid repast of salmon frittata with trimmings. If you missed it, don’t worry. We plan to murder more people in the Leintwardine Centre later this year.
In the meantime, there’s plenty to look forward to, including the quiz night this coming Friday, plus folk music from the excellent Megson on 19 March. Check out our Facebook page for more details.
