John Arnold

John Arnold

Secretary

Hi, I’m John and having retired from broadcasting I thought I would offer my skills to SACOS. At the open evening Les asked me to sing, something I hadn’t done for 50 odd years since leaving school, the rest is History. My first performance was in “SACOS at 55” in 2017 then, in 2018, “Old Time Music Hall “and recently “A Night at the Musicals”. I am known as one of the 3 Tenor ladies (amongst other things) and am enjoying it hugely. At the recent AGM I took on the role of SACOS Secretary and I also look after the very important Patrons, who help support SACOS financially.

Kathy has been a member of SACOS since 2007 and has held various positions on the committee including Vice-Chair & Secretary & has also in the past been our Stage Manager. Kathy was elected Treasurer for SACOS at the AGM in 2017.   You will never (well hopefully never!) see Kathy on stage as she is one of our non-acting members and more often than not will be found behind the scenes – though does make an occasional appearance front of house!  Kathy got a taste for theatre after moving to Selsey in 1999 and has been involved in a number of local groups.  She tried acting once and had a small role in a play and was heard to say “Well did that, can do it, but never again thank you….”
