Afternoon at movies
The monthly Movie Afternoon at the Anglican Care Elskie Centre is becoming an event not to miss.
After some teething issues on the first afternoon everything has run smoothly as people flock to the event. Since then Mamma Mia and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel have been thoroughly enjoyed and patrons are keen to know what will be next month.
The inspiration came from Elskie Centre Activities Coordinator Kay McLennan who felt there was a need to provide different activities for the Centre’s clients and to publicise the centre. The hall was blacked out and decorated, a big screen was mounted on the wall and comfortable seating installed. The servery offered free popcorn and sweets, with ice-creams at half time. After a few hitches a substitute movie Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont worked and the afternoon was enjoyed by a full house of 30.
Kay would like more people to come. Contact her on 06 374 7070.
