Greystoke Film Nights, Autumn / Winter 2022/3
We are delighted to announce a series of four film nights to be held at the village hall throughout this autumn and winter. We are supported by Eden Arts who are providing the equipment and films. These are very sociable events and a wonderful way to meet with friends or meet new people.

Tickets are £15.00 each and must be bought in advance. The price also includes a delicious one pot supper before the film and an English Lakes ice cream in the interval. There will be a licensed bar to purchase wine, beer and soft drinks. All profits go towards maintaining and running the swimming pool. Tickets will be available at the Post Office nearer the time of each event. All proceedings commence at 7.00pm.

The dates for your diaries are as follows:

  • Saturday 22 October
  • Saturday 3 December
  • Saturday 14 January
  • Saturday 4 March

Watch this space and the swimming pool Facebook page for film / ticket announcements shortly.

Greystoke WI
Greystoke WI’s August meeting was an Open Night when we welcomed friends and neighbours from the village for the annual garden prizes awarded by Roy Fisher. Some WI members were amongst the prize winners.

This was followed by Andrew Leech and Jim Bownass from Cumbria Archive showing us more of their edited historical film footage. We enjoyed fascinating details from Penrith and Keswick in the 60s – local industries, Penrith as a shopping centre and some footage of the Keswick Convention and the old Blue Box Theatre. In one of their previous audiences, an audience member jumped up saying that he had just seen himself in the film. That didn’t happen on Thursday, but Alan Marshall did recognise a lad delivering papers in the first section!

Our meeting on Thursday 1 September will be a talk on the Military Museum by Jules Wooding. The competition will be something with a military connection.

If you would like to join us please phone Hazel.

Greystoke Brownies and Guides
1st Greystoke Brownies and Guides is ready for the new term, with lots to look forward to and new members too. We’ve got lots planned over the next few weeks – making the most of the light evenings whilst they last!

We’ve got residentials planned for next year to Lockerbie Manor Activity Centre, and also Wellies and Wristbands, a festival just for Guides.

Brownies is for girls aged 7-10, and Guides is for girls aged 10-14. We meet in the village hall on Monday evenings. We welcome girls from a wide range of villages and schools. For more info and to join, see the Guides website or eMail.

Greystoke Parish Council
