Forman Flix - Fantastic Beasts and where to find them

On Friday evening 23 March (doors open 7:00) Forman Flix presents Fantastic Beasts and where to find them. This spin-off of the Harry Potter franchise jumps back in time to explore the wizarding world of 1926 New York, which is being threatened by both mystical acts of destruction and a group of extremist No-Majs (the American term for Muggles, i.e. those unable to use magic). Author Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) arrives in the city as part of a global study of fantastic beasts, but he gets caught up in this conflict when some of the magical creatures in his care are accidentally released. It is rated as a PG-13 (for some fantasy action violence and will last 132 Minutes. The usual tea or coffee and cakes will be available.

Roberton Kirk

A warm welcome awaits all who join us for worship at Roberton Kirk, which is part of Teviot & Roberton Parish Church. Under the leadership of the Rev Alistair Cook, the congregation has a desire to welcome all and spread the good news of Jesus in the valley.

We are holding an increased number of services in Roberton with the following planned for the rest of 2018:

Yoga - mind and body class

Our ever popular mind and body, yoga workout with Pauline will continue for a five week block until the end of March.  The next dates will be 1st March, 8th March, 15th March, 22 March and 29th March and will start at 6:45pm. The cost is £7.00 per session but if you attend all 5 sessions then the last one is free. Students will pay only £5.00 per session. A yoga mat is useful but loose, comfy clothing is essential. There is the option to stay for refreshments after the session. Contact Gill on 880274 if you are interested in coming along.

Forman Folk

Forman Folk will meet on Wednesday 4th April from 7:00pm to 9:00pm in the small hall. Everyone is welcome to come along with their musical instrument of choice (including voice). If you have a tune or a song you would like to share then please bring it along too. We stop for a 'tea-break' during the evening. The cost is by donation to cover the cost of the hall. Contact Donald on 880256 for any more information.

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.

This year we are doing things differently.

The new ‘200 Club’ will be relaunched in April this year with bigger and better prizes!

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 2018 to March 2019.  

Gardener's Forum Indian Fusion Evening

As you will have seen from the 2018 programme the theme for this year’s supper is Indian Fusion and this will take the form of a ‘bring and share’ supper at the Forman Hall on Saturday 24th February at 7.00 p.m. for 7.30 p.m.  

As the term Indian Fusion may cause some confusion we have, as usual, drawn up a list of dishes for the evening which is shown below.  All the recipes can be found below.

Gardener's Forum Events 2018

Despite the fact that winter is upon us and at the moment for most of us, gardening consists of reading seed catalogues and planning for the spring, the GF Committee have been thinking of events for 2018.  Further details of each event will be circulated nearer the time, but in the meantime please put the following dates in your diaries:

The February Supper is still as popular as ever and it will take place this year on Saturday 24th February.  The theme will be Indian Fusion, we will, of course, supply the necessary recipes for the event.  Further details, including the competition, will be circulated soon.
