It was with great sadness that Bolsover Drama Group learnt of the passing of John Blood in December, who had been part of the group since 1991.

He played a number of parts, including Nachum in ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, Radio Operator Bob McCaffrey in our 2000 production of ‘South Pacific’ and Pete, the scout, in ‘Calamity Jane’, and he also helped support the group and its members – including being involved with the building of the set and making items of scenery for our productions. He always brought his infectious laughter (and a pork pie or two for the cast) when attending the group’s shows as part of the audience, and provided many happy and fond memories.

Our thoughts are with Maureen and his family.
