“Brenda was like the Queen of Horley”! said a teenager who had known Brenda all her life
Brenda played an active role in our village life, she was one of the founding members of Horley Footlights, the Parish Council Clerk, a regular (if not resident) host of the Progressive Dinner and so much much more.
This tribute is for her role since 2002 as stage manager for Horley Footlights, from the first ever production of “Mother Goose Rocks” in 2003 to the latest in 2013 of “Alice”. Brenda has been there back stage, front and centre, managing and curating props, costumes, publicity you name it Brenda was doing it. Over the years Brenda has supported the various directors, actors and crews of over 12 productions.
Brenda just got things done, she was what I call a “do-er”, nothing was too much trouble, she always found a way. Brenda loved to be in the thick of it, at rehearsals, finding props and costumes, backstage and of course socialising, she enjoyed using all her talents, of which she had many.
As the saying goes “the show must go on”, so it is a fitting tribute to pay Brenda on her final curtain call, to say thank you Brenda from all of us “Footlighters”, we will miss you Debra X
