This scene is from “Alice in Wonderland”, presented by WAMADS (Willingham Amateur Dramatic Society) in 1985. The gentleman playing the part of “Humpty Dumpty” is none other than Bill Kirkman who, sadly, passed away in December. Bill was a great character, well known, and loved by many in the village. I once said to him “I was surprised to see you in this photo from WAMADS”. He said “Well everyone in the village has been in WAMADS at some time or other”. And it was true. In its heyday WAMDAS was a true village institution. Both WAMADS and Bill will be missed.
