Last Call! Sunday 29th May, 3:00pm – Little Gaddesden Drama Club Auditions in the Village Hall

‘Waiting for God’ – a Comedy by Michael Aitkens

Little Gaddesden Drama Club is delighted to announce that it is restarting productions after the pandemic. Our next production will be Michael Aitkens’ crackling comedy Waiting for God, to be staged in October this year.  Definitely not to be confused with Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, it is a sharply funny play.

Auditions are on Sunday 29 May at 3:00pm in Little Gaddesden Village Hall – note change of date from that given in The Gaddesden Diary. Existing and new members welcome. If you would like to be considered for a part, it would be helpful if you could please email the Director, Patrick Isherwood, in advance at waitingforgod@lgdramaclub.com.


Website News

Move to New Web Host Completed

Last weekend we completed the move of The Gaddesden Society‘s website to a different web hosting company. Our new host, which is already home to several Little Gaddesden websites, is a distinct improvement on the old one. Partly this is because the server on which the website is now hosted is located in Europe’s largest data centre, which is between Newport and Cardiff in South Wales – a lot closer to home than the previous one in North America.

In any event, we hope you will find that our pages load up more quickly and that moving around the site is a zippier experience than it used to be. Behind the scenes here at GadSoc Digital Towers we’re enjoying the easier editing and maintenance, and the enhanced email capabilities. And on the subject of email, we are now able to offer multiple email addresses on the @littlegaddesden.org.uk domain to clubs and societies that don’t have their own email facilities. So a club might like to have separate @littlegaddesden.org.uk addresses for its officers, much as we do at The Gaddesden Society (see our More About the Society page). Feel free to enquire.

This move completes the recent major overhaul of our website and digital infrastructure. If you have any questions about the changes, or want to know more about email addresses, please contact Andrew Sheard at wp-admin@littlegaddesden.org.uk.
