Tuesday 16 April 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!

SNAPS in Sussex: The Photographs of John Smith (1852-1925) – an illustrated talk (John de Bohun Room, Woodlands Centre, Woodlands Avenue, Rustington BN16 3HB)

Nichola Court of the West Sussex Record Office reveals photographs by John Smith, an accomplished photographer from the South Norwood Amateur Photographic Society (SNAPS). Born in South Norwood, Croydon, in 1851, John Smith was a builder by trade but he became a keen and prolific amateur photographer. He was later elected President of the SNAPS and, during the early 1900s, hosted the SNAPS for their annual excursion to Fittleworth, West Sussex, where his family owned several properties. It is this connection to Fittleworth that has brought John Smith’s extraordinary photographic collection to the WSRO. His photographs provide an enticing glimpse into the world of the Victorian/Edwardian middle and working classes, a world long-since passed. All are welcome at this illustrated talk. Entry for visitors £3, payable at the door. Entry for paid-up Rustington Heritage Association members is free.

Ferring Community Cinema: Wonka (Ferring Village Hall, Ferring Street)

Based on the extraordinary character at the centre of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, Roald Dahl’s most iconic children’s book, this musical prequel to Willy Wonka is a treat and perfect viewing for the young, and young at heart, so hopefully a film you can bring your children/grandchildren to.

Written by Simon Farnaby and written and directed by Paul King, who have already worked their magic on Paddington, this is the story of how a young Wonka becomes a chocolate enthusiast in pre-war Paris.

Timothée Chalamet plays an unworldly Wonka brilliantly and is joined by a stella cast; Hugh Grant, Olivia Coleman, Tom Davis, Matt Lucas, Jim Carter and Matthew Baynton are all brilliantly watchable. And the songs are extremely catchy! And who knows, there may be chocolate!

A big thank you to our audience members whose continued generosity has enabled us to make a further donation of £600 to the Village Hall ‘Call for the Wall’, bringing our/your total donation to the wall fund to £1,000.

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.
