CAROLS ROUND THE VILLAGE

Drimpton Carollers meet up to sing. We always raise funds for charities for the Homeless.
Wrap up against the cold, wear wellies, and bring a torch to help light our way and read the words. We also need door-to-door collectors -if you’d just like to rattle a tin, please come along….. No auditions needed!.
Our starting point is at the end of Applefield Road, by the bollards.
Carollers will then divide into two equal groups and hope to sing to the whole village!
Please, everyone, listen out for us.
Finally, refreshments at the Village Hall for the Choir!

FEEL-GOOD EXERCISE

Qi gong (pronounced chi gong) is a lovely form of gentle exercise, relaxing the body and calming the mind - great for improving health and wellbeing.

“Many of us doing Drimpton's new 'chi gong' classes have already noticed better balance, more flexibility and a lovely sense of peace.
If you’d like to try this gentle feel-good form of exercise, the weekly pay-as-you-go classes are continuing from TUESDAY's 1030 - 1130 at the Village Hall.
Note: no sessions on 24th and 31st December

Christmas Day church service

On Christmas Day St Mary,s Church will be offering a
Communion Service by extension at 10 am.
This is a wonderful opportunity to join with friends and neighbours
to celebrate the birth of a baby who was to turn the world upside down through his ministry and sacrifice.
Jesus gives meaning to Christmas. Jesus who was God in flesh, perfect, pure, holy, and who died on the cross and rose from the dead, is the one who gives the true meaning to Christmas.
So do come along and join in this celebration.

FILM CLUB – ‘EDIE’

EDIE 12A
Edie is 83, her stroke ridden husband has died and her daughter is determined to dispatch Edie into a care home. Edie rebels. She was known as a “wild child” and she decides that the “wild child”, hopefully still inside her, be given one last chance to show itself. Remembering her father’s passion for camping holidays……she makes a decision. She will head for the hills...with ancient camping stove and wellies.
Sheila Hancock (aged 83 when she filmed this) takes the part of Edie and Kevin Guthrie as Jonny.

Doors open at 7pm for 7:30pm start
Wine, beers, soft drinks and teas and coffees available to start your evening.

Following on from the success of 'Gloriator' and 'Glorilla', Spitz and Co are bringing the third and final show of their hilariously funny comedy trilogy. Inspired by Victor Hugo's classic novel 'Les Miserables', legendary French actress Gloria Delaneuf is determined to create a piece of theatre with the power to re-unite Europe. She has dreamed a dream and her hapless UK tour manager Josephine has promised to build a barricade and help her make it happen.
