Anyone can cook and The Post film – coming up at Melksham Seniors

A cooking class and a blockbuster film are both on the agenda for Melksham Seniors next week.
First up is a cooking class led by the organisation ‘Any Body Can Cook’ on Thursday 14th June at the Riverside Club from 10.30am to 12.30pm.
The afternoon is for anyone who lives alone and is looking for new ideas for recipes for one. ‘Any Body Can Cook’ will demonstrate how to cook some simple, nutritious and tasty food on a budget. This is a free event and anyone who attends will be given a free slow cooker to take home.

On Monday 18th June, the Seniors will be screening ‘The Post’, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep at the Assembly Hall from 1.30pm.
The film’s synopsis says, “In 1971, following the public revelation of the Pentagon Papers, both the Times and the Post stood tall against an injunction, filed by the Nixon White House, to cease publication of the classified documents — an attempt at legal clampdown that could well have snuffed the Fourth Estate as we know it.
“‘The Post’ offers not so much a message as a warning – that freedom of the press is a fight that never stops, and that the force that keeps it going is the absolute die-hard belief in that freedom. When the press begins to accept restrictions, however grudgingly, it’s all but inviting itself to be muzzled.”
