NEXT weekend looks like being a big one for West Malvern.
As well as the Garden and Nature Club’s annual show at the village hall on Saturday, the social club next door are staging the big village quiz on Friday, September 13, starting at 8pm.
Entry costs £1 per player, and proceeds will go to the village school PTA and the parent and toddler group.
Further information from Mal Edgson on 07974 735374.
Although not strictly in West Malvern, another event on the same evening at St Peter’s Church, Cowleigh, just outside the parish, may be of interest to local lovers of Dylan Thomas’s Under Milk Wood.
The screen adaptation of his original radio play, featuring Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Peter O’Toole, will be shown at 7.30pm.
Prices are £4 adults and £3.50 for under 16s.
For bookings and further information, contact Andrew Judd on 01684 893858.
Also not quite in West Malvern, but possibly of interest to local residents, are two free taster sessions at the Wheel of Life, North Malvern Road for a series of classes in TMW (tai chi movements for Wellbeing).
These will take place on Monday, September 16, from 7pm to 8pm and Thursday, September 19, from 9.45am to 10.45 am.
TMW is a range of movements claimed to help in managing long-term health conditions, rehabilitation, depression – and even the challenges associated with getting older!
For more information and to book places contact Linda Edwards on 569677.
Incidentally, Linda herself does have strong connections with West Malvern, her father having been head groundsman at St James’ girls school for 40 years.
Finally, the parish council will be hoping to co-opt a new member at its meeting on Monday, as there has been no request for a bi-election for the current casual vacancy.
Anyone willing to put themselves forward should contact parish clerk David Sharp on 01684 573213 as soon as possible.
The parish council may seem a rather boring body, but it spends our money as council tax payers.
It also performs the valuable function of scrutinising and commenting upon planning applications which can affect the community.
The most recent example was that of the Lamb Inn, now destined for final closure.
Step forward, councillor.
