Story posted on

MELKSHAM Seniors will be screening a blockbuster film this month, as well as hosting their regular weekly and monthly social events. 

On Monday 18th February, the Seniors will be screening movie-sequel, ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ at their monthly movie afternoon.

Starring Meryl Streep, Cher and Pierce Brosnan, the film is set five years after the events of the 2008 film ‘Mamma Mia!’The synopsis says, “Sophie (played by Amanda Seyfried) prepares for the grand reopening of the Hotel Bella Donna as she learns more about her mother’s past.”

Packed full of ABBA songs, this is a must-see for all fans.

Doors open at 1.30pm. Entry is free, but donations are encouraged to help support the event. At the interval there is a raffle, and tea and biscuits.

Once a month on the first Monday of the month, the Seniors meet at Forest Community Centre to enjoy a wide range of outdoor and indoor games and activities that not only help to improve health, but also plenty of laughs. Join the group from 1.30pm until 4pm. The next meeting will be on Monday 4th February.

Every Thursday, the Melksham Seniors Activity & Social Club meet at the Riverside Club from 10.30am to 12.30pm. 

The weekly Thursday morning activities include a great favourite “Smile and Sing along” under the leadership of Sue Stone. Then on alternate weeks they have Clare Webber, well-known locally for her excellent happy classes of balance, mobility, strength and stretch exercises for the more mature. They are always great fun and often pretty hilarious as the oldies swing along to great music.

Chairman Jim says, “It is a good two hours of socialising, a cup of tea or coffee, chocolate biscuits, or just ordinary biscuits all sorts, a raffle, plus games if you want to play, we really do have a fun two hours.”

The Seniors are also looking for assistance to help with transport, helping members attend the group’s functions.

If you would like more information about the regular events, or about helping with transport, contact Jim on 07845 430035 or email: lawfj@sky.com
