Film Night


On Saturday 26th October in the Village Hall for all members of C-Fylm

The Alfred Hitchcock version

A young woman marries a fascinating widower only to find out that she must live in the shadow of his former wife, Rebecca, who died mysteriously several years earlier. The young wife must come to grips with the terrible secret of her handsome, cold husband, Max De Winter (Laurence Olivier). She must also deal with the jealous, obsessed Mrs. Danvers (Judith Anderson), the housekeeper, who will not accept her as the mistress of the house. Alfred Hitchcock’s first Hollywood film features inventive camera work, superb acting and a story of twists and turns.

Doors open at 7pm—Film starts at 7.30pm £3; which includes tea or coffee.

For all members of C-Fylm – if you are not a member you can join on the night.

Friends of Townshend Hall

We are looking forward to our first event and are hoping as many people as possible will want to come along.

On Saturday 9th November from 7pm, Roy and Diana Williams will be cooking excellent Indian food for us to enjoy. This will be a two course meal followed by coffee. You are welcome to bring along your favourite tipple to enjoy with the meal!

The cost will be £7.50 per person. If you have any dietary requirements please let Sarah know when you book. To book a place please contact Sarah on 07842 201950; sarah@davidchapman.org.uk

We are hoping to raise funds both for Hall maintenance and to enable us to put on events next year.

Christmas Lunch

Enjoy an early Christmas Lunch on Saturday 7th Dec. from 12.30 and celebrate the forthcoming festive season with us in the stunningly decorated village hall.  Lunch costs £10 but please book in advance with a deposit of £5 with Diane at the next lunch or contact Sarah on 07842201950/ sarah@davidchapman.org.uk.  Everyone is welcome to come along and enjoy some early festive fun.

Craft Decorating Sessions

These have been put on hold for the time being. Please let us know if you would like them to continue or if you have any other ideas that we can help you with.  We don’t see many children in the Hall so it is very special when we do!    Inger 07528 839824

Gardening for Wildlife in October

It is not too late to plant spring bulbs.  Crocuses provide an excellent early food source for bees.  Make leaf and log piles for hedgehogs to use for hibernation during the winter.

Ukulele Group

If you would like to learn a few cords on the ukulele and enjoy a singalong, come and check out the Dancing Flees.  We meet in the Hall every other Wednesday afternoon from 1.30 to 4pm. This month’s sessions are on the 9th and the 23rd October.

Contact Dave on dnireland@cloud.com

Pilates for everyone!

Mondays 9.30 to 10.30 Nicky is offering an initial free session.

Plea to Residents

The Hall Management Committee respectfully asks the residents of Townshend not to park in the Hall carpark. This facility is intended for hirers of the Hall and several of our users are elderly and/or have health
problems with mobility issues.  As autumn/winter approaches it is even more important that access to the Hall is as direct as possible for its users. 

Thank you, your co-operation will be appreciated.

Please send any suggestions for inclusion in the newsletter to Rosemary Saunders ehsblue@aol.com or Sarah Chapman or  look at our Facebook/ WEBSITE www.townshendvillagehall.org.uk
