Viewing of The Old Oak

Some photos from our showing of The Old Oak at St Jude's a week ago. Many thanks for the welcome from Rev Kate and to Joanne and Val who introduced the film, speaking from their experience of being in/ working with communities where groups of migrants came to live. Many of the scenes in the film echoed events that have happened. Delighted that Dave Turner (TJ in the film) and Claire Rodgerson (Laura) joined us for a great conversation afterwards. They spoke with feeling about the issues raised in the film... and made us laugh too. We were also delighted that over 80 people attended. Many thanks to you for coming out on a bitterly cold evening
