Forman Flix Matinee

 

The first Forman Flix family film matinee will take place on Sunday 29th September starting at 2:00pm. There will be light refreshments on offer and an adult should accompany children. We ask for a donation towards costs.
The film lasts 103 minutes and is rated U.

Forman Flix

The first fim of this season will be Early Man (directed by Nick Park of Wallace and Gromit fame).  If you wish to bring your own drinks then that will be fine but we will offer home made snacks and tea or coffee too.  Comfy folding chairs have proved useful in the past - our chairs are not that comfy to sit on long term.  Early man lasts 89 minutes and has a PG rating for some rude humour and some action.

200 club

 

The ‘200 Club’ began in the 1980’s as a fund-raising scheme for the Forman Memorial Hall. In that time, it has contributed around £400 every year towards the upkeep of the Hall.
The new ‘200 Club’ was relaunched in April 2018 with bigger and better prizes! Each month there are prizes of £50.00, £20.00 and £10.00.
Members will each pay £10 per year to become a member of the club. (That’s less than £1 per month). Each member is then assigned a number (from 1 through to 200) and will be given a ticket valid from April 2019 to March 2020. There are still numbers available for 2019 to 2020. Please contact Clare on 372000 if you would like to take part.

Location of Third Fibre Cabinet ?

There may be a third fibre cabinet being installed next to the Telephone Exchange (Borthwickbrae) over the next few months. Thanks to Irene and Simon who live near the Exchange for pointing out that there have been markings (now gone) on the ground. If you're within 1km (as the road travels) of the exchange, then you're highly likely to be able to get Superfast Broadband (if a fibre cabinet does indeed get built there).

4G Mobile Phone signal may be coming to the valley

Proposed Location of Eildrig Mast

Huge thanks to Jamie Gray at Eildrig for this info.

He has been consulted by a telecoms company looking to erect a mast at Eildrig, as part of the Scottish 4G Infill programme. This is in addition to the emergency services provision that is coming at the same location. It is not confirmed, but likely, that both emergency mobile phone signal, and commercial mobile phone signal (along with 4G data connectivity) will use the same mast (at Eildrig), once they've worked out how to get power to it etc....

This, of course, provides an alternate Superfast Broadband option for those within range of the mast, who may not be served by the upcoming OpenReach provision.
