John Pidgeon Award

John Pidgeon was a very active member of the group ever since it was re-formed in 1974. Sadly, John died of a heart attack at an early age and his wife, Shirley, gave the memorial rosebowl to the Players for the purpose of presenting it, annually, to the person or persons whom it was felt had, both on and off stage, made a major contribution to the Ewhurst Players over a period of time.
