Green book film and more at Seniors group

Story posted on

MELKSHAM Seniors will be hosting their regular weekly and monthly social events this fortnight. 

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 1st July.

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.

The Seniors say, “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.”

On Monday 17th June, the Seniors will be screening the Oscar-winning film, Green Book at the Assembly Hall at 1.30pm. The film’s synopsis says, “Dr Don Shirley is a world-class African-American pianist, who is about to embark on a concert tour in the Deep South in 1962. In need of a driver and protection, Shirley recruits Tony Lip, a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighbourhood in the Bronx. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond, while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.”

The Seniors are also looking for assistance to help with transport, helping members attend the group’s functions. If you would like more information, contact chairman Martin Pain: martinwillard.pain@yahoo.com
