Serkis’s directorial debut about the life of pioneering polio survivor Robin
Cavendish is heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure.
Part exuberant love story, part great escape adventure, this is an old-fashioned tale of triumph over adversity that refuses – like its protagonists – to succumb to confinement. This is a true story and stars Andrew Garfield as Robin, Claire Foy as his wife, with Tom Hollander and Hugh Bonneville in support.
Peter & Amanda Worrall were one-time neighbours of the Cavendish family and knew Robin well. They have kindly agreed to tell us a little about Robin at the start of the film.

The year is 1926, and Newt
Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and
document an extraordinary array of magical creatures.
Arriving in New York for a brief
stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a
No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and
the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both
the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
You don’t have to be a Harry Potter fan to enjoy this magical fantasy with incredible special effects and a gripping story. Come and be amazed!
Lurgashall Village Hall – Wed. 9 January Tickets £5 on the door. Doors and Bar open 7pm for 7.30pm start
We are delighted to announce that Pilates teacher Eliza Wheeler is restarting Monday evening Pilates at Lurgashall Village Hall in January.
Eliza says: “I look forward to welcoming back those who attended last time, and I would love to invite people who are yet to try it out (a great New Year’s Resolution!).
“As a Physiotherapist I think Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise, and everyone can benefit from it in some way. The focus is on strengthening up the ‘core’ – improving strength centrally makes the bits on the outside function better! We also work on flexibility, balance and posture. The benefits of regular Pilates include not only toning legs, bums and tums, but also helping to reduce and prevent back pain.
“Ultimately, it should be fun, and I hope at the end of the class you walk out feeling refreshed and happy.”
The classes start on Monday 7th January 2019 at 7.15pm (please note start time)
