Make a note in your diaries now of the Woolsack Film Evening in aid of Citizens Advice. The film is the classic from 1968, the Oscar winning Thomas Crown Affair and starring Steve Mcqueen (with a tie!) and the beautiful Fay Dunaway.
We will screen the film on Friday April 8 in the newly refurbished Wilfrid Noyce Centre - new seating, new equipment, new everything - and there will be a bar before and during the mid film interval.
Tickets costs just £10 each and that includes a glass a wine. They are available from Citizens Advice Waverley office in Bridge Street Godalming or www.wegottickets.com/events/351220 for a £1 booking fee.
Bring your friends and enjoy a good film and good company at this excellent new venue in Godalming.
Our Youth Committee has organised the local heat of this year’s Young Writer competition as the first stage of the Rotary national competition. Entrants from local schools aged 7 to 17 had to write a short story or poem based on the theme “Our world is beautiful”. A wonderful 87 entries came from Busbridge Junior School, The Chandler Junior School, Godalming Junior School and Rodborough College and covered three age groups. Judging took place during February by three independent judges.
and the winners were
Junior – Ellie Bartley from Busbridge Junior School
Intermediate – Anastasia Moore from Rodborough College
Senior – Madeleine Ball also from Rodborough College
There was a lot of enthusiasm for the competition from the staff at the schools and this fed through to many good stories and poems from the children.
The winners have been sponsored by Woolsack for the next stage of the competition organised by District 1145.
Presentation of the prizes to the winners was made by President Cath. The photos show Cath and Tim Kendall with Ellie and Cath, Tim and Francis Harrison with Anastasia and Madeleine.
