With the winter season just completed, the next film event is the society’s AGM on 1st May at 7.30 pm. It will be held at the Village Hall, and is open to all existing and newly joining members.
On Thursday 1st May we have an extra treat –the film Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. An Arab potentate wishes to introduce salmon fishing into his country in the Middle East. A political satire on how this is achieved, this film is an amusing account of the machinations of British government. Directed by Lasse Hallstrom it stars Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt , Kristin Scott Thomas and Amr Waked. This follows our AGM – the formal business normally done and dusted in well under half an hour. Free to members.
We will circulate the AGM agenda and financial summary about a week before the meeting.
We welcome any nominations for additional committee members – please contact Don or Helen. And we need a second projectionist, to work alongside Brian Mather. Volunteers please; feel free to talk to Brian about what it involves.
At Friday’s screening we will invite you to renew your membership for the coming season, which starts on Friday 12th September. We are not just holding but reducing our prices! Current members can renew for £15 each – less than £2 a film. (In our first season in 2007 we charged £25!)
Returned lapsed members and people not renewing early will pay £18 and new members £20. You have until Friday 2nd May to take advantage of this offer – cash or cheques must be received by Helen at the April screening, at the AGM or by delivery to 8 Harefield Cottages EX8 5EX – sorry, but no exceptions this year. We will be announcing the detail of the programme around the end of July.
