Community Cinema: The Lunchbox

Starts: 26 January 2022 18:45
Ends: 26 January 2022 21:14

Location: St Mary's Church, Leigh Woods

A well-told old-fashioned romance. A beautiful relationship is triggered by the wrong delivery of a lunchbox that's delivered daily within the bustling metropolis of Mumbai. Ila, a confused housewife, emerges a more confident woman, ready to take a decision, while Saajan metamorphoses from a gloomy, close-to-retirement government employee to a man searching for his long-lost soul mate. Rumour has it this film was denied top prizes because the press were so enthusiastic that judges feared they’d be seen as under their influence.

Tickets are £6 each (includes a glass of wine). Come for a drink at 1845 and the film will start at 1930 and run for 104 minutes.

Book & pay via Barry England as always. Please do so now if you would like to come.

Bin it? No way! Do you have a pair of jeans that needs to be patched or a jumper that needs darning, a lamp that needs a plug, shears to be sharpened, a favourite toy that needs fixing or a bicycle with a flat tire?  Bring it along to the Repair Café and we'll do our best to fix it while you wait, watch and maybe pick up some new skills!

All repairs are undertaken by volunteers and are free (donations welcome). We also have a stall selling tea, coffee, bacon/egg rolls and cakes so you can sit and have a cuppa while you wait to be seen. Repair Cafés are set up to reduce waste and save money.  Read more here.

Abbots Pool Working Party

Starts: 13 February 2022 10:00
Ends: 13 February 2022 12:00

Location: Abbots Pool

January's working party was on a bright and sunny day, it was so good to be out and about, blowing out the cobwebs and sluggishness after the festive season.  We had a productive couple of hours with a lot of laurels being pulled and the dead hedge on the dam being repaired and secured into place.

In February we shall continue to remove invasive species, while the ground is soft and they are relatively easily to pull out. We will need to get into the cave and pull out the debris that is collected there before the toads come as we don’t want to disturb them.

Thanks again to alleveryome who joined in the adhoc litter pick.

The working party’s aim is to keep this asset on our doorstep looking great.  We maintain the pool and surrounds by:

  • removing invasive species;
  • maintaining utilities within the pool area;
  • litter picking;
  • clearing leaves;
  • removing fallen trees from pathways;
  • rebuilding dead hedges; and
  • removing detritus from the cave and the cascade.

It’s a great way to do your bit for the community, get outside meet your neighbours, enjoy nature, coffee & chocolate biscuits and feel virtuous having done something good for the community.  If you want to know more email Jo Chiverton.
