ST MARY’S CHURCH, BETTWS-Y-CRWYN
Many thanks to Sue Evans for hosting the September Coffee Morning at Glendale. A welcome innovation was a cake stall with a wonderful array of homemade cakes that kept everyone munching happily and added greatly to the funds when the remaining cakes were auctioned off. The results of the 100 Club draw were: 1st Stan Wheeler, 2nd Thelma Davies, 3rd Jude Powell.
Please watch out for posters for the November Coffee Morning as the details were not available by the time we went to press.
The WI will be holding their AGM at their usual Wednesday evening meeting on 8th November, 7.30 in the Parish Hall. There will be a Quiz and the Competition will be for a 7inch knitted square. As always, everyone will be most welcome.
The following Saturday, 11th November at 7.30 in the Parish Hall, will be Film Night, and the subject could hardly be better chosen because the film is Addicted to Sheep (PG)
In the North Pennines, tenant farmers Tom and Kay spend their days looking after their flock of prized sheep, and hoping that this will be the year they breed the perfect one. Director Magali Pettier, herself a farmer’s daughter, follows a year in their lives, capturing both the stark, stunning beauty of the landscape, and the brutally hard graft it takes just to survive in their remote rural world. Their three children are growing up close to the land, attending a school entirely comprised of farmers’ children, thoroughly immersed in their remote rural world. A treat for the senses, Addicted to Sheep allows us to experience life on a hill farm – without having to get mucked in ourselves. “A refreshing look at life on a tenant farm with very little security for the future other than their belief in what they are doing and how they are doing it”.” The children are a delight.” “Good family fun film.” “Thoroughly enjoyed by all with a round of applause at the end.”
Adults £4; Children £2; Family Ticket £10. Refreshments in the interval.
Advance notice of the Carol Service which will be held in the Church on Sunday 17th December, at
the slightly later time of 7.30 pm.
