WORTH FILM CLUB

 

A record turnout at our January show for Woman at War saw 35 of us enjoy another fascinating, quirky Icelandic Film; a heroic tale of an eco-warrior set in the bleak scenic background of Iceland where she took some precarious action to offset what she saw as the imminent threat posed by Industrialisation.


This month our film, ‘The Good Liar’, will be shown on Tuesday 25 February. It’s a recent film, a mystery thriller and an old-fashioned drama but first and foremost it features the teaming of two British acting legends, Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen. Helen Miren is Betty, a retired, well-off widow looking for decorous romantic companionship and McKellen plays Roy, a roguish, slightly improper old charmer. It is the perfect set up for a seasoned crook like Roy and Betty is a sitting duck. Or is she?

Tickets are £5 at the Village Hall door, arrive at 7pm for a glass, the film starts at 7.30.

PURBECK REWILDERS CLUB

The inaugural session of the Club was well attended by 35 participants keen to learn more about how we might encourage local species of plants and wildlife to thrive in and around Purbeck and in particular in our own gardens. Presentations by Lesley Malpas of Operation Future Hope, and Andrew George author of The Butterfly Friendly Garden opened our eyes to what's possible and inspired us to 'have a go'.

Next meeting will be on the evening of 19 March in the Village Hall.

More information will be posted here shortly.

WORTH CENTENARY

Invitation to Worth Centenary Planning Meeting on 
Saturday, 29 FEB at 5.30pm 

As you may know, some of us think we should use the sale of the village in 1919 as an excuse to celebrate what's happened in Worth in the past 100 years. At the end of October, twenty of us met and made some preliminary plans. Momentum and interest have grown since then and 30 of us met for the next Planning Meeting on the 4th Jan. We made some good progress and have actions to take which will be posted on this website once the notes from the meeting are distributed. All those in the village are very welcome to come to the next meeting on Leap Year Day. Totally free alcohol and soft drinks will be available! Please come and join in. You won’t get another chance for 100 years! If you are interested, whether you can come or not, contact Nick Viney directly by emailing nickviney@hotmail.com and he will add you to the Centenary Working Group. You will then receive all updates on our plans. 
The notes from our Jan meeting, a Draft Programme, which is very much a work in progress, a list of Working Groups and the agenda for the 29 Feb can be viewed by clicking this link

DEFIBRILLATOR FAMILIARISATION

On the 20 January we had a very successful Defibrillator familiarisation
session where 16 of us participated in the training run by Maggie Hardy and Mary Buck of the Swanage Community Defibrillator Partnership (SCDP) supported by two of their colleagues Deirdre and Tim Mersey.

We learnt that the SCDP's accomplishments have been remarkable, far exceeding their initial goal of 4 Defibrillators, the number now stands at a very impressive 35 in Swanage and surrounding villages, including ours on the wall of Worth Village Hall. This down to the enthusiasm and commitment of the SCDP team which they very clearly demonstrated to us in this session. We would like to thank them for donating their time to help us all be better prepared if ever we are called on to carry out CPR with the aid of a defibrillator.
THANK YOU SCDP.
