Marden Theatre Group: Inspector Drake’s Last Case

Marden Theatre Group’s next production will be Inspector Drake’s Last Case with performances at the end of October in the Marden Memorial Hall.

Standby for the ultimate Agatha Christie spoof, as Inspector Drake, ably hampered by Sergeant Plod, interviews a colourful confusion of characters. David Tristram’s first-ever play is riotous fun from opening curtain to outlandish denouement.

“SENSATIONAL COMEDY WHODUNIT!”

No one could have foreseen the strange events that took place one dark evening at the home of Mrs Gagarin. We see her taking a stroll. Next she screams, “Who is it? Oh, it’s you!” Next a gunshot! It’s up to the world’s greatest detective to solve the crime. But, in the words of Sergeant Plod, “don’t believe everything you see …”.

Come and see Marden Theatre Group create this fantastically entertaining play. Email us at info@mardentheatregroup.co.uk with any queries.

Tickets can be purchased from local businesses and also online (booking fee applies). Here is our Eventbrite page for online tickets.

Marden Station needs your help.

South Eastern Railways are asking for nominations for Railway Stations to benefit from £300m government cash funding to enhance step-free access and this could mean a lift if Marden is successful.

As a number of employees use Marden station I am asking if you could circulate to gain their support and nominate Marden at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/southeasternrailway.

Marden Parish Council is also arranging a photoshoot at Marden station on Thursday 27th September at 5pm for anyone to come along especially if they have experienced problems with gaining access to the opposite platform.

Many thanks

Pattenden Vets Social Event

On Monday 29th October the Marden Business Forum were delighted to visit a new member of our business community & already highly valued addition to the Marden Community as a whole.

Pattenden Veterinary Clinic is a state of the art practice, thanks in no small way to their close working relationship with neighbors Burtons Medical Equipment Ltd. – the UK’s largest supplier of Veterinary Equipment.

David Burton was in attendance, with his son Matt, to support Lara Hummel, Tori Jordan & Janet Clark proudly showing the gleaming facility to a large group of forum members.

Janet is the practice’s Administrator whilst Lara and Tori are your new friendly practicing Vets. All three have enjoyed an established working relationship for several years before deciding to set up an Independent practice in Marden.

Since opening in May this year the practice already boasts nearly 600 clients, mainly dealing with dogs and cats but a few other household pets and chickens along the way.

We wish Lara, Tori and Janet all the best for a long and successful future and thank them wholeheartedly for hosting a highly enjoyable & social event.

During the MBF’s Event at Pattenden Vetinary Clinic we were treated to a short talk by Bridget Wood on Medical Detection Dogs.

How amazing is the work being done by them to save lives and also the research that is trying to artificially mimic the “nose” to detect various cancers.

Thank you Bridget.

If anyone would like to contact Bridget to either donate to her new puppy or just to learn more about this incredible charity, please email her: Bridgetwood2011@gmail.com
