Dennis Dunford

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Dennis Dunford, one of our most long standing members and part of the fabric at Weymouth Drama Club.  Dennis has been heavily involved with the Club for decades and his touch has been cast over many productions, the most recent of which was Colder than Here.  He had also helped with flower arrangements for Murdered to Death and wardrobe for A Doll's House as recently as February 2020. He had been involved with the local drama festivals and had had many successes, he had directed all types of theatre including panto and was a whizz with the sewing machine.  We will miss him loads.  We send our love to Cathrin, Chris, Nicola and Sky.
