Rocking chair required

Allan R in Playford
Hi Streetlifers. The Company of Four are looking to borrow a rocking chair for their panto. Red Riding Hood's granny needs somewhere to sit! Has anyone got one we can borrow for just over a week?? We will need it for opening night on Friday. Thanks
Allan R
Hi Rosalyn. Thanks for your response. I have just heard that one of my fellow cast members has found one. Thanks so much for your offer, but I don't think Granny will need two. 

Tree felling on Foxhall rd near Bell Lane

bunnykins in Great Bealings
