It was a happy ending for West Hill’s annual pantomime as it attracted its largest crowd numbers for three years.

Some 270 people attended Wonder Productions’ spin on Cinderella, including 90 children during the Saturday matinee.

Ian Heard, West Hill village hall trustee, said: “This is the seventh time Wonder Productions have brought their pantomime to West Hill, and we received tremendous feedback from the audience, parents and children alike, that they hugely enjoyed this most-loved pantomime of them all.

“Buttons was a great favourite with the children, involving them throughout the story, whilst the ugly stepsisters amused and cajoled the children in equal measure, particularly in the ghost scene when all the children were shouting at their loudest to tell them where the ghost was – but to no avail.”

Proceeds from the event have been donated to improving the village hall.
