A few weeks ago I saw this note at the Dovetail Centre of the Methodist Church.
The note asks you to be a friend of someone.

Chameleon Theatre Company
In their recent AGM, the Chameleon Theatre Company of Chandler’s Ford has chosen Chandler’s Ford Good Neighbours to benefit from their fund raising efforts in the coming year.
Last year the Chameleons supported the local Alzheimer’s Society and raised over £800 for them from the sale of raffle tickets through the year – a record amount.
The Chameleons stage 4 productions per year. The upcoming production in October will be Dracula by Bram Stocker.
Don’t miss the show. You can buy tickets online.
Dracula – The Chameleon Theatre Company
Thursday 29th to Saturday 31st of October 2015
As a sudden and mysterious storm whips the coast of England, a young woman sleepwalks along the edge of the sea cliff. In the teeth of a gale a ship crashes through the harbour entrance, abandoned except for an immense dog and fifty boxes of grave dust. The Transylvanian Count Dracula has arrived in England.
The most chilling story of all time, Bram Stoker’s gothic classic, adapted by Jane Thornton and John Godber, and directed by Liz Strevens.
