A local pantomime is set to be fully refreshed, thanks to the generosity of a town's grocery shop. Oh yes it is.

When Loddon Players hosts its annual panto - which this year is Aladdin - they will be able to supply refreshments for panto audiences without having to dip too much into their own coffers.

The Players have been presented with £400 worth of vouchers for Central England Co-op, with which they can purchase teas, coffees and more to serve at the shows.

Committee members Maureen Larkin, Sharon Sutton and Gina Buntrock were presented with the vouchers during the Loddon Victorian Evening, by Co-op branch manager Dean Blyth and staff member Juliette Yallop.

The pantomime opens on Friday, January 12, with 11 performances in total.
