Having been asked the question as to how to spend £1000, a good majority of the villagers wanted to pursue the idea of a monthly film night, in the school hall on a weekday evening.
There are a number of villages who do this very successfully, and as well as seeing some very good films, it is a good chance to get together for a few hours to enjoy a social time. The idea would be to run a bar so that drink is available before the performance and during the interval with a possibility of an ice cream as well!
We are now gathering information as to what equipment is available as well as the films on offer, the Licneces involved, and how to advertise etc.. A group of helpers are needed to assist both on the night and to help choose folms, (it would be ideal if there are 8-10 people involved) decide on what night the performance should be, depending on the availability of the hall.
Please email me if you are willing to help, I would like to think the first showing might be towards the end of May.
