Dick, now living at Hibaldstow, took part in two productions by the group, before he went off to do his National Service in the RAF.

Amongst Dick Heath’s collection from the Barnet’s Folly production is a ticket, programme and a copy of the original script the cast worked from.

There is also a publicity flyer which lists on the back shops of the town that were to display it, presumably.

Listed are - although the writing is quite faded - Lacey and Clark, Haynes, Hydes, Gordon Arms, Boots, International, Theiss, Eyers, Colbecks, Cottinghams, Brumby, Topliss, East Bill, W H Smith, Watsons, Coulson, Toynes, Cleaners, Flunkers, Shaws, Wool?, Kings Head, Lancasters, Garnetts, Phill Cox.
