Jacky Chong - Chairman

I converted to the Catholic Church before my marriage to Paul over 50 years ago. We have four married children and eleven grandchildren, who keep us busy and grounded! I am a regular attender at Ss Thomas' Catholic church in Emsworth. I love Passion Plays and was delighted to go to Oberammergau in 2010 to see their wonderful play. Even though I don't speak German, I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the experience.

I was delighted to join the 'Future Group' for the first Havant Passion Play, as the Catholic representative.  Like Linda, our treasurer, I had no intention of acting in it - I don't do that sort of thing! However, James is a very persuasive person and I absolutely loved my part as 'mother 1', leading in the donkey, ably assisted by my twin grandsons, Joseph and Isaac. It really was a most memorable time, that I look back on with great fondness and emotion.

I agreed to go on the Board of HPP as a Trustee when I felt that Havant Passion Play Limited was in danger of being discontinued. Several of the original members of the Board of Trustees wanted to step down after the 2015 play and take a well earned, and deserved, rest. I had no idea that I would be voted on as Chair person, what did I know? I am, however, delighted to front the team steering us towards the second Havant Passion Play and am so often overwhelmed by the generosity and support given to us. It is a wonderful organisation to be a part of.
