HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY MEETING - cancelled

Many of you will be aware that there has recently been a significant cluster of Covid cases in Drimpton and the surrounding areas. Many of us know of friends and neighbours who have recently tested positive for Covid 19 and are currently isolating. In these circumstances the Committee has reluctantly decided that it would be sensible to cancel our meeting this Wednesday the 20th October .

We know this will be a great disappointment to many members. Many of us were hoping to gain tips and hints on growing potatoes which would enable us next year to do better in the Society's Potato growing competition. I'm sure many will also miss the opportunity to meet socially and catch up with friends. We are optimistic that it will be possible to go ahead with our November meeting as planned.

Film Club 'PARASITE'

“PARASITE” 72 minutes (15)

Winner of Best Film at the 2020 Oscars

A gripping tale about class inequalities between the Kim family who live in a severely sub-standard basement flat at the bottom of a hill in Seoul and have nothing except family unity, living cheek by jowl to eke out an existence. At the top of the hill live the wealthy but naive Parks who live in a large and lavish house….and have everything. Gradually their lives interconnect in a innocent way to begin with, but things begin to get increasingly out of hand. In one story it is a black comedy, a satire, a thriller, a family drama, a horror film, …. and is an allegory about class.
SUBTITLES

Doors open at 7pm for 7:30pm start

Refreshment includes wine, beers, teas and coffees

Members free Guests £4

IMPORTANT UPDATE
As we are experiencing rising numbers of Covid in the village I think it wise that we go back to the booking system that we had before the relaxation of measures in May at least for the November film.

REMEMBRANCE SERVICE

REMEMBRANCE SERVICE will take place at St Mary’s Church on the 14th November at 10.45 am.

Following the Act of Remembrance of those who lost their lives during two World Wars as well as more recent conflicts, there will be a short service of Morning Prayer which will consist of hymns, and readings associated with Remembrance Sunday. This is an ideal opportunity to reflect on all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, so that we are now able to enjoy the precious gift of freedom; freedom which is the envy of many living under harsh authoritarian regimes. So do come along, and participate in this most important historical tribute of remembrance.

Garrick and Etheridge

Drimpton Village Hall and Artsreach present Garrick and Etheridge

Having had to cancel two previous dates due to COVID we have been fortunate enough to secure Christian Garrick (violin) John Etheridge (guitar) for a performance at Drimpton once again.
Guitarist John Etheridge and violinist Chris Garrick have performed together for many years. Back with a new show, this world class duo provides a feast of interplay, improvisation and eclectic repertoire, with music ranging from Peter Gabriel to Richard Rogers via Dollar Brand and Alison Goldfrapp.

Although COVID restrictions have been eased we will still be limiting capacity at the Hall in order to ensure social distancing can be maintained - early booking is strongly advised.
Tickets can be obtained on line at Artsreach.(link below), or from Francesca Hurrell on 01308 867617.
