“Our popular weekly qigong classes are back in the Village Hall on Tuesday mornings 10.30-11.30am. We’re carefully following strict official covid-19 precautions, so you’ll be asked to use the hand gel on arrival and write your name, postcode and phone number in our contacts book. There’ll be social distancing and the classes themselves will be gentle and safe, enjoyable and effective as usual – great for flexibility and balance. It's still pay as you go £5 a session.

Remembrance Service

Thank you so much to all those who contributed flowers to decorate the church for our Harvest Festival. It made a huge difference to what could have been a very bare church at a time of celebration for God's gifts through nature, which we all enjoy and appreciate. Along with the flowers, a significant quantity of food was also donated, which having complimented the flowers, was taken to the Beaminster food bank.
So again thank you.

Our next very important service is Remembrance Sunday on November 8th commemorating the sacrifice of those who lost their lives in two World Wars and subsequent conflicts. A request has been submitted to the Village Hall Committee for use of the playing field for this short act of worship. This would be the most appropriate and safest venue in view of the Covid-19 restrictions placed on the church.
If permission is granted, confirmation will be appear in the November village newsletter.

Film Club "1917"

FILM CLUB “1917” (15) 115 minutes
Set in April 1917 in northern France this is powerful, profound film built upon and around a tale told by the director’s grandfather of his time in WW1.
Two soldiers are given the seemingly impossible task of venturing into enemy occupied land to deliver a life-saving message. The two are very different….one is affable, amicable, easy going while the other is intense, reticent and introverted. However the partnership works, with a growing reliance on each other and each bringing their own characteristics to the fore as and when needed throughout their mission.
The score was written by Thomas Newman and reflects the mood of each scene so well.
Directed by Sam Mendes, the lead actors are George MacKay and Dean-Charles Chapman with brief appearances from Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Richard Madden and Daniel Mays.
Tribute must also go to Roger Deakins’s cinematography that makes this film appear to be one long continuous shot.
There will NOT be any drinks available but please do bring your own.
All seats MUST BE RESERVED due to the limited number of people that we can take.

Please contact Diana Leake to reserve seats and for any queries you may have. I will then advise you of all safeguarding that we have in place at the Hall.
If you cannot come to the Village Hall to see a film, you can rent it afterwards for £1.
