Gwen Jones - Treasurer
After 43 years working in banking, finance and corporate tax in Central London, broken by three years in the mid 1980’s in Singapore teaching English as a second language and being heavily involved in the Singapore Stage Club; Gwen stopped all that (so she thought) and she and her husband moved to Poole for a no-cares life of relaxation and little responsibility. In the summer of 2018, she joined the very friendly people at the Bournemouth Little Theatre Club and was soon asked if she was interested in becoming Treasurer as the then current incumbent (Noel) wanted, after 25 years in the role, to “retire”. “Easy job, little to it”, he said. They are all pretending in Theatre – some to be someone else on stage, and some – she is finding out – to grossly underestimate their role in the club! Since joining she has had great fun painting sets, walls in the BLTC Green Room, and the stairwell; as well as becoming involved in the Club’s Archiving Project, and, slowly, getting to understand the full range of the Treasurer role! She encourages all members to be active in the Club, there is lots to do, whatever their skills are, and to those who haven’t joined yet, to do so and meet many potential friends of varying ages who are very welcoming to newcomers.

After a long and varied teaching career, both in this country and Singapore, he retired from his post as Head of Drama in Brentwood School, Essex in 2015. After travelling around the Far East for three and a half months, he and his wife moved to Poole and the warm embrace of The Bournemouth Little Theatre! The last few months have been a whirl of rehearsing, decorating the club and making plans for its continued creative and financial prosperity. His interests (apart from acting) include music, travel, wine, food, SCUBA diving and photography.
