A stalwart of the Viva family received a ‘civic farewell’ earlier this month to honour her contribution to the theatre company over many years.
Leaving the Soham-based drama group for a new home in France, new and old members gathered to wish Tracey Summers luck as she moves to France.
The farewell was also attended by Mayor of Ely, Councillor Mike Rouse, who said: “Tracy goes with the warmest wishes and great affection from her friends.”
Daniel Schumann, of Viva Soham, said: “Tracey has been a big part of our Viva family for a long time.
“She has been a performer, backstage crew member and volunteer.
