New Community Cinema The Parish Council is looking at the possibility of running a community cinema at the Willow Centre. The main aim of the cinema will be to bring people together for an entertaining evening, and also to raise money for the centre. Initial thoughts is to show a film once a month including a short break - and of course the sale of ice-creams! If you would like to be involved please contact Monica Howard, Willow Centre Administrative Officer, on 01603 457222.
