Film Night – “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” – Wed. 9 January 2019

Fantastic Beasts

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!

Pilates for All – January 2019 Classes at Lurgashall Village Hall

Pilates position

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)

Please contact Eliza on 07929 365088 or email eliza.wheeler@hotmail.co.uk if you would like to attend or have any questions.

January class dates are: Monday 7th; Monday 14th; Monday 21st, Monday 28th. All 7.15-8.15pm.

Film Night – “Goodbye Christopher Robin” – Wed. 7 November

Goodbye Christopher Robin - Nov 2018A glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne  and his son Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh.

Having been wounded at the Battle of the Somme in 1916, Alan Alexander Milne is invalided back to London where he is recruited to write propaganda articles for MI7. He and his wife Daphne have a son, Christopher Robin (nicknamed Billy), and in 1925, the family moves from London to East Sussex, where Alan settles down to writing plays, poems and books.

His wanderings with his young son in the Ashdown Forest near their home, and their play-acting with Billy’s toy animals become the inspiration for a series of Milne’s books whose enchanting tales bring hope and comfort to post-war England – and become among the most-loved and most sold children’s books ever written.
