We have a Chippie!!! Starting from the 31st January we will be visited by the Munchkins Fish and Chips van. They will be open for business from 5:00pm to 8:00pm serving a whole range of food to the starving folk Stawell. It is hoped to open the village hall at the same time so you can take your nosh into the hall and have a drink from the bar as well. Hopefully the van will be well supported so it will become a weekly visitor to the village.

Doors open from 10:30am to 1:00pm. Always a good turn out of villagers looking for great brunch or cake and a lovely meet up with friends and neighbours.
As usual the HUB Cafe is followed by a Film Night and this month we have a showing of The 100 Foot Journey. Although this film dates from 2014 and I’ve seen it already I definitely want to catch it again. It tells the story of a displaced Indian family who settle in a rural French village and open a restaurant, the Maison Mumbai. Unfortunately their location is near a Michelin starred restaurant owned by a frosty proprietor, played by Helen Mirren. All out war between the two operations ensues but, as you would expect in a warm, feel good film like this, all is well by the end.
The annual church Lent Lunch is on Saturday 21 March from noon to 2:00pm. Come along to the Village Hall and choose from a selection of delicious home made soups and support the Malawi Association fro Christian Support.

Refreshments are available but bring your own drinks and glasses. Up to 4 in a team and entry is £5 per person. I’ve been along to this event a couple of times and its been great fun…we even once once!
No information on the Church Coffee Morning for March yet.
The second film night of February will be a showing of Joker. Put 29 February in your diary to make sure you don’t miss this blockbuster.
Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City. Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him. Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.
Joaquim Phoenix portrays the name character in this acclaimed movie which has so far grossed over a billion dollars. The gritty action includes violence and language which earn it a R rating (under 17s should be accompanied by an adult)
The Village Hall doors will open at 7:00pm for a 7:30pm start for both films. As usual, the bar will be open and snacks and hot-dogs will be available during the interval.
The Church Coffee Morning will be on 29 February. The host is Judy Garrett at 1 Grove Cottage. As usual the fun and games run from 10:00am to 12:00pm.
