Dont forget the 20th Sept which will premier the Fairy Cave Quarry film. I have seen the preview and it is quite remarkable. I got a bit part in the film as did Mr O. Doc. Five days filming went into it. Mrs O. Doc will be around the the ice creams.

Official poster attached for the Film premiere at Priddy Village hall of the latest Freem production on Friday 20th September. (there seems to have been a dodgy other one posted somewhere by Old Ruminator as i recall...)

A scurrilous attempt to make us look old and senile. Nothing to do with me but I know the wicked people behind it.

Yes, but it is more representative...
