More men needed to tread the Marine boards

LYME Regis is short of eligible young men. No I’m not bemoaning the lack of roses or chocolates (or an Eddie Hearn mug for LymeOnline editor Francesca) last month, I’m talking about the reason behind the reluctant decision taken by the Marine Players to shelve their spring production that required a cast with more fellas than they have.
