Calling all Pianists!

Are there any pianists in the village who would be willing to play a few pieces during our monthly lunches in the village hall?  In addition there is the odd village event, eg carol singing at Christmas where the accompaniment of a piano would be much appreciated.  The village hall has a superb baby grand and for a while we were very fortunate to have a pianist at the lunches.  We are not expecting a concert pianist but someone with enough repertoire and confidence to play at occasional events in the village hall.

Film Club: ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’

Saturday 23rd February at 7.30pm, £3 per person (C-fylm members only)

Directed by Mike Newell—Written by Don Roos and Tom Bezucha

A 2018 historical drama.

In 1946 a London-based writer begins exchanging letters with residents on the island of Guernsey which was German occupied during WWII.  Feeling compelled to visit the island, she starts to get a picture of what it was like during the German occupation. What might otherwise be classed as a super-sweet experience, it is leavened by the underlying pathos of wartime, an alluring mystery and stunning photography.

If you are not already a member come along and join on the night— membership for all of 2019 costs £6 per person.

If the wonderful success of the Bollywood night, has inspired you, come along to the pre-film meeting this month at 6.30p.m. We can talk about films to book and any other ideas you might have; as an incentive there will be Potato Peel Pie to sample! . To whet your appetite in March we will be showing ‘A Dog’s Purpose’, which is a gentle comedy about a dog’s life. In April, we have the magnificent ’A Winged Migration’, a beautiful celebration of bird flight.

We are moving the film club nights to the last Saturday in the month, still at 7.30pm, to avoid clashes with other film clubs.
