Jo Brown, Drama Society Chairman writes;
It was with a sad heart that I was informed of the death of Anne Day.
As you all know, Anne was a stalwart member of the Drama Society for many years and a most accomplished actress who could turn her hand to almost anything.
Her comic timing was impeccable. Her portrayal of Madam Arcati in Blithe Spirit is something I will always remember and her dramatic interpretation of Sarat Carn in Bonaventure was outstanding; only two of the many memorable roles she has taken over the years.
Both Anne and Alan were staunch supporters of the Drama Society and for many, many years brought a large party of folk to see every production. On speaking to Anne after the show her criticism was always supportive, constructive and to be taken note of, certainly not the “that was the best thing you’ve ever done” that we tend to hear from a lot of people! I was always very grateful to take on board all she had to say.
Anne was a lovely lady who loved life and with whom I have enjoyed many happy times both on stage and off as I am sure have we all. There is one thing for sure, that whenever we reminisce about times gone by, Anne Day will always be a big part of all those memories. We shall miss her greatly.
