Forman Flix - Woman in Gold

WOMAN IN GOLD is the remarkable true story of one woman's journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family. Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann (Mirren), starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt's famous painting 'Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I'. Together with her inexperienced but plucky young lawyer Randy Schoenberg (Reynolds), she embarks upon a major battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court, and forces her to confront difficult truths about the past along the way.  The film lasts 1hour 49mins and it's classed as a PG13.  There will be the usual tea, coffee and cakes.

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:

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.
