Treading the boards

LADY Fenton, of Kilburn Hall, better known as Jean Gemmell, was the first speaker of the year at Pentrich Women’s Institute.

Her talk was ‘ The show must go on – to order’, which saw her regale the audience with tales of her experiences as a theatre director and events organiser.

Jean is also an Amber Valley borough councillor for the Kilburn Ward. She lives at Kilburn Hall in the village.

The next WI meeting will be on Tuesday, February 7 starting at 7.30pm. This will be an open meeting, when family and friends can attend.
