‘A Star is Born’ – 8 March

Adderbury Cine Club will be showing ‘A Star is Born’ in the Institute – doors open at 7.30 pm. Nominated for 5 Golden Globes it is sure to win plenty in this year’s award season. Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) discovers, and falls in love with, struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally’s career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
There will be a bar selling wine, beer, soft and hot drinks. Tickets can be booked by

Knitting Group

The knitting group meets in the Methodist Hall on the first and third Monday of the month between 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm. This is a very informal group who knit squares for blankets or other much needed items, for refugees. We also enjoy a chat and a cup of tea. If you would prefer not to knit, but would rather sew squares together, that too would be very welcome. We are always grateful for double knitting wool, of any colour other than white, and size 8 needles.  Drop in and see what we do and just sit and have a cup of tea with us!

FOCAL Fundraising Events

Car Boot Sales
The car boot season is now well and truly over, and Peter is delighted to report that the total monies raised in 2018 was £609.40.
Virtual Walk: Land’s End to John O’Groats. WHERE IS PETER?Lanarkshire. His progress in December has been subdued as his wife had her second knee replacement operation of 2018 and so his actual walking has been limited to small local routes around the village. A new year’s resolution will change all this, and he has vowed to increase his weekly mileage  by doing at least one longer walk every week in addition to his normal daily strut, especially as Google Maps is telling him he still has a further 312 miles to go before he reaches John O’ Groats.
