Marlborough's hottest June day : and then another new record is set

 

The record for the hottest June day since the Marlborough “Windrushweather” station was established in 1984, was set on June 30 1995. But ….. no more!  It's been a week of tumbling records.

The Third Policeman reports for duty on the Ogbourne Maizey beat - has a bicycle gone missing?

 

Transposing an iconic comic novel full of surreal lunacy into a play is one giant step for Irish literature - quite another step is bringing the play for one performance only to a beautiful garden in Ogbourne Maizey - a couple of miles north of Marlborough.  

The novel is Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman and the Miracle Theatre Company from Cornwall brings this dramatised version to Maizey Lodge next month.  How lucky can Marlborough people be to have such a side-splitting rest from Nordic noir and all those grim cop shows on the telly?
