It was great to be back in Essex after a two year absence. It was also our first visit to Buphan Village, apparently pronounced....Bull-van.... which means we arrived there in our Fiat "Fan". The audience didn't get that joke either!
We were greeted by the very lovely Janet McCheyne who was running the event on behalf of Bulphan Village Community Forum.
It was, in fact, one of the prettiest villages we have been to; flower pots everywhere in all shapes and sizes, thanks to Bulphan in Bloom who have won many accolades including Gold in 2010 for Anglia in Bloom in addition to Best Village in Anglia. The village was also nominated for many other special awards for all their achievements – Best Drought Garden, Best Community and Best Youth Project.
Janet was also our host for the evening - we were staying the night in her very unique, Farm House after the show. During the evening we found out that Janet had been awarded the MBE for her contribution to the Village of Bulphan. Well done Janet, you deserved it!!!
The audience were wonderful and gave us a rousing reception from the moment we came on stage. Their enthusiasm never diminished for the rest of the show.
Thanks for all your kind comments and I am sure we will be back with one of our other shows!!

"Saw your great show at Bulphan Village Hall last night. It was so good. Did not know what to expect in local hall but you were the best entertainment we have ever seen locally. Heaven knows how we afforded you both!!!! Come back soon....Thank you for such a great time"
