A drama that tracks the story of the foot soldiers of the early
feminist movement, women who were forced underground
to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an
increasingly brutal State. These women were not primarily
from the genteel educated classes, they were working
women who had seen peaceful protest achieve nothing.
Radicalized and turning to violence as the only route to
change, they were willing to lose everything in their fight for
equality - their jobs, their homes, their children and their
lives. Maud was one such foot soldier. The story of her fight
for dignity is as gripping and visceral as any thriller, it is also
heart-breaking and inspirational. Cast includes: Carey
Mulligan, Anne-Marie Duff, Helena Bonham Carter & Meryl
Doors open 7.00 pm for 7.30 pm
£5 donation each towards village hall funds, includes
glass of wine/beer.
Children under 16 free when accompanied by an adult.

In addition to these listed events there are regular Table Tennis sessions on Monday evenings, and Bingo Nights are held every Tuesday evening.
If you would like to book the hall for a function or find out any more information on any of the regular events please contact Loraine 743577.
BINGO The special Christmas Bingo held in December was a most succesful and enjoyable occasion with a fantastic amount of £549 being raised for the Village Hall Extension Fund. Thanks to all involved in organising the evening. If you would like to come along and play on the regular Tuesday evening sessions please contact Heather Bryans 742207.
FUND RAISING for the Village Hall extension will continue to be a priority for the committee and they would welcome any new ideas for funding raising events to be held during the coming year. The hall is an important asset to the community and it is hoped that all future events will be well supported. Contact Caroline on 743897 if you would like to help in any way.
VALLEY ART GROUP We were pleased to pick up our paint brushes again when we started our meetings at the beginning of January. During the first session we welcomed another new person and now have a regular group coming along to draw and paint and generally enjoy an 'arty' atmosphere.
The group meets fortnightly starting at 10.00 am until 12.30 pm. If you would like to join us please contact Loraine at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 743577
CHRISTMAS WALK AND SOUP LUNCH Thanks to everybody, adults, children and dogs alike who turned out on a miserable damp Sunday after Christmas to walk to Grovely Woods. Despite the weather everybody enjoyed stretching their legs after all the Christmas indulgences. We all welcomed the convivial break in the woods, where tea, coffee and treats were served from a tractor trailor before returning back to our starting point at the Royal Oak. Those of us who then went to the village hall were warmed up by a nourishing hot tasty soup kindly served up by Sheena, Cheryl and helpers, followed by tea and cake and a 'Pantomime' film showing. The day was rounded off with a Raffle with numerous prizes up for winning. A total of £180 was raised for the village hall extension fund so a big thanks to organisers and walkers for making this a succesful event.
