Passing of Roger Humphreys

It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of Roger Humphreys on Sunday 18th May.

Roger had been a stalwart of Shawbury Village players since 1980 just after the group first formed. His first production being Cinderella.

He will be fondly remembered in many ways, his zest for life, singing, painting skills and especially for his role of the Dame in many pantomimes over the years. Roger was one of the best ‘ad- libbers’ in the business and knew how ‘ to work’ an audience. He was always so full of life and lived it to the full. May he now rest in peace knowing how much he was loved by all and our thoughts are with his family.
