"Would you like to encourage others to join you on group walks in your workplace, or community, or specifically for the Greater Manchester Walking Festival? If so, maybe we can help support with this by providing training.
We are thrilled to announce the opening of a community cInema and film club just set up in Northenden. It's called 'The Block' and can be found at West View Court off Royle Green Road. They will be screening evening performances on Thursdays, and some afternoons they will be running 'Feel Good Cinema' which are screenings for people experiencing memory loss issues including dementia. Not only is there a large screening area, but you will also enjoy full surround sound!
Tickets cost £4 and include the first tea/coffee and biscuits.
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE - Thursday 30 January 7.30 pm
Sparks fly when spirited Elizabeth Bennet meets single, rich, and proud Mr. Darcy. But Mr. Darcy reluctantly finds himself falling in love with a woman beneath his class. Can each overcome his or her own pride and prejudice?
The Jane Austen classic is vividly brought to life with great production values and natural lighting which evokes nineteenth century life. Plus a who's who of great actors, who could want more?

Consistently voted the greatest all time film in th English language, Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo will leave you spellbound and breathless. John "Scottie" Ferguson is a retired San Francisco police detective who suffers from acrophobia, and Madeleine is the lady who leads him to high places.
A wealthy shipbuilder who is an acquaintance from college days approaches Scottie and asks him to follow his beautiful wife, Madeleine. He fears she is going insane, maybe even contemplating suicide, as he believes she has been possessed by a dead ancestor who committed suicide. Scottie is skeptical, but agrees to the assignment after he sees the beautiful Madeleine.
