Macmillan Coffee Morning & Lunch in South Luffenham Village Hall

Everyone is welcome to come to the annual Coffee Morning and Lunch in aid of The Macmillan Cancer Support Charity which will be held in South Luffenham Village Hall on Friday 30th September.

Coffee/tea and cakes to eat or buy will be available from 11.00am and lunch from noon-1.30pm.

If you are willing to bake a cake, cook a lunch course or help on the day, please contact Noel Seymour on 01780720112 or noel_seymour@uwclub.net

The money raised is used to provide essential support to people who are living with cancer and their families. One in three of us will face cancer, and the money raised at the coffee morning will help Macmillan make sure no one has to face it alone.

Offers of help on the day or cakes, preserves and raffle prizes would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Katy Ellis

Click image for larger view

Thank you for your past support. Uppingham Town Partnership has obtained the funding to put on a monthly film night in Uppingham Town Hall at 7.15 every second Wednesday in the month at only £5 per ticket, starting in September and carrying on until next summer.

With plenty more support, we hope to be able to make it a permanent fixture! And we aim to keep it as a fun, sociable evening with sweets on sale, soft drinks available and sometimes a quick chat about the film. So, please do bring your drinks (alcohol permitted), nibbles & cushions and come along to enjoy a film evening with us from September 11th.

Tickets will be available from The Falcon two weeks before each film, or take the risk and just turn up and pay on the door! There will be posters around the town.

And do please spread the word by sharing via Facebook or other social media below, and bring some friends along with you.

The films we have planned are:

NOW YOU SEE ME (Official website, reviews: RT, IMDb). A heist movie with a difference – the thieves are all magicians…. – November 13th

THE GREAT GATSBY (yet to be confirmed) (Official website, reviews: RT, IMDb). We think you will have heard about this one – feel free to dress up if we manage to book it! – December 11th

Behind the Candelabra possibly! (Official website, reviews: RT, IMDb, The Telegraph) – the darkly comic biopic about Liberace and his relationships) – January 8th

We will keep you up to date with any additional information, and we very much look forward to warmly welcoming you to as many film nights as you can get to!

Charity Events

Fibromyalgia Association UK LogoThe weekly quiz last week was in aid of charity and it was written and run by Sian. We held a raffle as well and on Saturday, a car boot sale. We raised £280 in total, half donated to FMAUK (Fibromyalgia Association) and the other half to Stamford Fibromyalgia Support Group.

If anyone would like any information on the condition that Sian herself struggles with, please pop in and have a chat to her. She’d be happy to help and put you in touch with the local group.

Many thanks to everyone that donated raffle prizes and items for the car boot sale and for coming along and spending your money!

Winter Leagues

Winter being around the corner, the quiz and domino leagues start again over the next two weeks.

Along with this, we are now entered in a local darts league and are looking for those that have already put their names down to play, and anyone else interested, to come along this Thurs eve at 7.30 ish to go over the details.

Upcoming Events
