Middleton Cheney youngsters are rehearsing a Nativity play for our times -in which the evil Herod determines to prevent the Holy birth by closing down the Horton.

In a thoroughly entertaining script, written by Just Kidz youth theatre group leader Kay Stevens, the baby is eventually born - but in the back of a bus heading for the JR Hospital, in a layby on the A34. “God decides to have another go at sending his messageof love to earth but businessman Herod has other plans,” said Mrs Stevens, whose young actors will present the play as their Christmas show.
