A long-standing Croxley drama group returned in full force last week, bringing joy to residents through performance whilst raising money for charity.
The Croxley Green Mummers are a group of local amateur actors, who tour the village performing and brightening residents day for a good cause. This year, the group raised £200 for Peace Hospice Care in Watford.
The Mummers performed St George and The Dragon on Sunday, December 19 at All Saints Church, Dickinson Square, The Red House, The Artichoke and The Sportsman.
Speaking of the history of the group, Chris Hillier said: “In 1994 a group of Croxley residents whilst having a drink in the Artichoke decided that it might be an idea to try to revive the play.
“The original script had been lost but the St Albans Mummers had been using the Croxley Play for a number of years and so we borrowed it back! A cast was recruited and we set about making our costumes and rehearsing.
“Our first performance of the revived Mummers was at Christmas 1994. After a few initial troubles with Three Rivers Council and theatre licenses soon sorted out we have performed the play on the Sunday before Christmas ever since.”
