Film club membership for 2008 is now due. It is £8 for the year.
The first film this year is on Wednesday 23rd Jan and is the much
Grace. It would be very helpful if you could pay your
subscriptions before the 23 Jan. You can pay on the
night of 23rd Jan, but it takes time and holds things up, so
please try to pay your annual subscriptions in advance to
one of the committee members (See above)

Film Club will be on Wednesday 23rd January when the film will be
Grace - the story of William Wilberforce and the abolition of
slavery. It stars, amongst others, Ioan Gruffudd, Albert Finney
and Michael Gambon.
We are starting a new year of

still be a £1 fee per film but not in the month you join. A

office acclaim and was widely requested by the film club members,
particularly those that enjoy country and western music . The usual note

The Film Club is still in
the process of obtaining the licence needed for the club to operate.
We have now been advised that this will not be available until the new

operating the club we will have to wait until then to obtain the
necessary licence. We apologise for the delay and hope you will all
bear with us.

have to tell you that we have to postpone the next two meetings of the
film club. This is due to the fact that we do not yet have the correct

extend the season into the summer of next year and/or have an extra film

have any queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with any members
