FILM NIGHT  The Dressmaker starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo de Caprio  was a popular choice back in September with plenty of surprises in the plot. Our film in Novemeber is Eddie the Eagle, the story of british athlete, Michael “Eddie” Edwards and his rise to fame as an improbable contestant in the 1988 Winter Olympics.  Doors open at 7.00 pm for 7.30 pm. £5 per person donation includes a glass of wine or beer and all profits go towards the village hall extension fund.

VALLEY ART GROUP    Our watercolour pencil workshop in October proved to be a popular subject and with additional visitors joining in the morning the hall was a hive of activity.   This month on November 11th there is a chance to try printmaking and special effects with watercolour using autumn leaves.  You can drop in to any of our sessions and there is only a mininal fee payable to cover the cost of the hall.  If you would like to join us please contact Loraine 743577 or email:


BREAKFAST MORNING  This is now a regular event in the village calendar. The next breakfast morning will be on Saturday, 26th November from  9.00 am until 11.00 am. Come along and enjoy a full English breakfast, read the papers, and have a convivial chat.  What a good way to start off the weekend.


DOG SHOW AND CAR BOOT  This took place back in September and despite the weather not being on our side, this event was enjoyed by both dogs and owners and money raised is being shared between the hall and the church.


PHOTO SUCCESS  Whilst South Newton, with its busy main road and industrial area, may not be considered by some to be the prettiest village in the  Wylye Valley, it is a pleasure to see a photograph of a rainbow arching over our village on the cover of a Women's Institute annual publication.  To view the photo go to the South Newton website.
