February Film Night: will be held on Friday 17th February at Robertsbridge Hall starting at 7.30pm. This month the film is `Café Society` which is Woody Allen’s latest offering. This is a story of slightly tangled romance in pre war New York. It is funny, touching and beautifully produced. There is a bar, snacks and ice creams available for your creature comforts.

Next Tuesday is Valentines Day; don’t forget you romantics out there to use your local shops and hostelries when celebrating. Support your local community.

There is now a collection box: at the Floral Boutique taking donations for fundraising towards the cancer treatment for our local woman Louise Ballard. Please help out in any way you can.
