Tuesday 21 May 2024 - 11:00 to 12:30

Postnatal group for mums with babies from newborn to crawling (St Mary’s Church Hall, Ilex Way, Goring)

Every Tuesday. Even school holidays.
£6 per session, including hot drinks and biscuits.
A safe place for mothers with babies from newborn to crawling to meet and share experiences. Mothering is hard. Babies haven't read any of the 'how-to' books and don't come out with instructions.
Each baby is unique and we have to learn how to trust the baby and our own instincts. Mothers have wisdom to share. Come learn and share.
The group is run by Dorothy Norris, a retired midwife and nutritional consultant who recently moved to Goring from London. She has over 35 years of experience working with mums and babes, running groups like this. her aim is to facilitate meeting and supporting each other, not to give advice. No one knows your baby better than you do.
This group is for mums. Crawling as an endpoint is simply because, from experience, that's when mums are distracted by the babe and can't listen to the conversations. In truth, you choose when you want to graduate!

But we can confidently say that you’ll be in good hands. Past acts included Maisie Adam, Tom Ward, and Alasdair Beckett-King.

Not only will you be enjoying iconic comics, but you will also be improving the lives of patients and staff in your local NHS hospitals, with all profits from the event supporting our work.

One Life (Ferring Village Hall)

Ferring Community Cinema's next film is ‘One Life’.

One Life tells the true story of Nicholas Winton, the “British Schindler”, who, in the months leading up to World War II, helped rescue over 600 predominantly Jewish children from Nazi occupied Czechoslovakia.

While visiting Prague in 1938 Winton, played by Anthony Hopkins, saw families who had fled the Nazis in Germany and Austria and who were living in desperate conditions, with little or no food and shelter. He immediately realised it was a race against time to get the children to safety before the Nazi occupation closed the borders.

He lived much of his life haunted by guilt that not all the children were rescued, but then a television programme helped him understand the impact his actions had on those lives saved – and the enormous debt of gratitude those rescued felt.

One Life pays heart-warming tribute to a remarkable humanitarian effort and the role Nicholas Winton played.

The film will be showing at Ferring Village Hall. Tickets are £6 and available at the North Ferring Co-Op, the Premier Stores in South Ferring, and on the door on the night. Ticket price includes tea, coffee or a soft drink and biscuits. Doors open at 6.30pm for a prompt 7.00pm start.

Murders and Misdemeanours in Chichester – a talk by Philip MacDougall (John de Bohun Room, Woodlands Centre, Woodlands Avenue, Rustington BN16 3HB)

This talk looks at a number of notorious crimes that have, over time, beset the Chichester area. They range from the murderous drunken assault upon a soldier recruited into the army of George III to the discovery, in the 1950s, of an unknown and decapitated body in the waters of Chichester Harbour. Through these crimes – each a cause celebre in its day – the talk provides a fascinating survey of early policing methods within this particular corner of West Sussex – and an insight into how the detection of crime has developed. All are welcome at this talk. Entry for visitors £3, payable at the door. Entry for paid-up Rustington Heritage Association members is free.
