7.30pm An Evening with Raymond Allen: Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em

St Mary’s Church, Hay-on-Wye

Sponsored by the Globe, Ray will be raising funds for St Mary’s by talking about his early career. Apart from being sole writer on 26 episodes of Some Mothers, he also wrote for the comedians Dave Allen, Little & Large and Frankie Howerd and has amusing anecdotes to tell about the glory days of British sitcom. Much in demand as an after-dinner raconteur, the story of his life is both funny and inspirational to the struggling creative.

Tickets £10 available from the Globe Bar and on the door at St Mary’s. All proceeds are going to the Church so please support this event. There will be a bar.



The Building Committee is delighted to report that at last  work has been completed on the two projects to improve St Mary’s.

The heating engineer and his team  moved on the 4th of April and have now fully installed and tested the new heating system.

Another team of builders has completed the disabled access to the main entrance.

We have had to undertake the work before we have fully raised the funds needed as we must get the new heating up and running. Therefore the appeal remains open, so any more donations will be very welcome. Please keep it rolling in!

Donors may make an initial enquiry by writing to A member of the Building and Fund Raising Committee or PCC will be pleased to answer any questions.
