Ilminster Forum Updates

Please Help Show How Poor Mobile Phone Reception is in Ilminster

The Ilminster Forum have recently conducted a survey with businesses throughout the town. One of the issues highlighted by the survey is poor mobile reception throughout the town.

The Forum are looking to producea report to pass on to Ofcom and the mobile operators to see if there is anything that can be done in and around Ilminster to improve mobile reception. We need your help to do this!
Our aim is to finish the report by then end of this month (June).

Currently, the RootMetrics coverage checker shows partial report coverage of the town; we want to show a complete picture of the town to support our report.

If you’d like to help and you own an Android or iOS device, we need you to download the RootMetrics Coverage Checker app and run tests wherever you can around town. You need to be disconnected from WiFi when you run these tests. Please note that each test can use between 5-10mb of your data allowance.

If you have any questions about this task please contact Andrew Lawson via Facebook. We’ll hopefully let you know if we hear anything back. Many thanks.

Event: Present Laughter
Location: The Warehouse Theatre, Ilminster

Details:
This play has splendid casting opportunities. Essential to the performance is Gary Essendine, the part which Noel Coward wrote for himself, and who is on stage for just over half the play. It was originally written for someone in their early 40’s, but Noel went on playing it until he was over 60. Main supporting parts are Liz, Gary’s discarded wife; Morris, his manager; Henry, his producer; and Joanna, Henry’s wife who are all 30 to 50 (we may need to do a little mix and match on ages here). Household parts, who are very much in and out of the action are; Monica the austere secretary,30 to 50; Fred the valet, about the same; and Miss Erikson, originally written for a then fashionable Swedish housekeeper, whose age and accent, we will adapt as necessary. The two younger parts are Daphne, described in the script as a pretty girl of about 23; and Roland, an earnest young man. Let’s say anything 18 to 28, with a little give or take. Finally, there is Lady Saltburn, a lovely posh part who won’t see 40 again, but she is only on for 3 or 4 pages.. Tickets availble from Harrimans and from the warehousetheatre.org.uk.. Tickets available from Harrimans and from the warehousetheatre.org.uk.
