In association with the Royal British Legion, Movies in the Village Hall organised a special film screening for the charity on Friday 17 November. The film chosen was "Churchill", an historical war drama which recounted the story of the actions of Winston Churchill during the 96 hours leading up to D-Day in June 1944. Starring Brian Cox in the title role and Miranda Richardson as Clementine, it gave an interesting, unfamiliar perspective on the great leader — one that was wearied by war, hesitant and fearful of the results of failure.
Around 45 people — both members and non-members of the RBL — attended the film in the Village Hall, which was specially decorated with flags and bunting for the event. Film goers were also treated to some trailers of forthcoming films. A donation to the RBL was made from the evening's profits and a raffle helped to boost much needed funds.
