TOADS - The Old Alresford Dramatic Society - was formed in 1986. It was a momentous year; Argentina won the Football World Cup, knocking England out in a match that featured Diego Maradona's "Hand of God" goal. The USA bombed Libya. The Soviet Union disclosed details of the Chernobyl disaster.
Closer to home, it was the year that the village school and the village shop and Post Office closed. Our aims today remain as they were when we were founded; to try to keep village life going, to provide a focal point for the people in the Parish of Old Alresford and to give the children of the village something to do.
