Film Club: The Club is anxious to attract new members. The subscription to members for the year is £20. We are unable to show films on an ad hoc basis due to the prohibitive cost which is £100 per showing and so have set up the Club with a private members licence which costs just over £100 per annum and means we can show as many films as we like. Ring Hilary on 01797 230205 for more information.
