FILM NIGHT The July screening was the original version of Far from the Madding Crowd based on the novel by Thomas Hardy. With a cast of past talent including Julie Christie, Alan Bates, Tom Courteney and Peter Finch, together with glimpses of the beautiful Dorset countryside and even the Bear Hotel at Devizes as a backdrop to some scenes, it proved popular viewing with our audience. It will be interesting to see how the new version soon to be on release will compare with this classic film. An amount of £117.50 was raised towards the hall extension fund. If there is a particular film you would like to see, please do let us know. Contact Caroline 743897 or Loraine 743577.
BREAKFAST MORNING Saturday, July 25th. This is now a popular regular event in the village hall calendar and once again a fine amount of £115.00 was raised due to the expert breakfast cooking skills of Heather and Janet, with the help of their team whether serving or helping in the kitchen .
VALLEY ART GROUP In July we met at the Cathedral Cloisters and after viewing the spectacular light installation at the North door, we spent a pleasant morning sketching in the cloisters. This is a beautiful space in which to work and offers a chance to tackle architectural drawing or sketch people without being disturbed, as in the main the many visitors were too enthralled with the magnificence of the building and finding the Magna Carta exhibition to bother us. At lunch time some of us went to the Museum to see the wonderful work of JWM Turner, a master of watercolour painting who spent many hours working around the Cathedral and the nearby landscape. It runs until September and is well worth a visit. On the last day of of the month we visited the Ginger Piggery at Boyton for coffee and an art chart, followed by a visit to the art/craft barn. If you would like to join our group, please contact Loraine 743577. Classes in the hall begin again on September 4th.
BARN DANCE/HOG ROAST currently being arranged to take place in November. Check next month's magazine for further details.
