As usual, FOSP entered a tree in the Stoke Fleming Christmas Tree Festival. The theme this year was "the 1950s" to chime with our recent showing of the film Grease. The decorations comprised images of those events and items dating from that year, including the Coronation, the conquest of Everest, the discovery of the helix structure of DNA, hula hoops, full skirts and petticoats, and many others.
On 6 Dec we showed a sing-along version of the classic film GREASE at the Village Hall. Despite initially slow ticket sales, the Hall was full of people on the night, all joining in with the singing and thoroughly enjoying themselves. There was a prize for the Best Dressed 50’s outfit, which was deservedly won by Jenny Farmer. Hot dogs were served in the interval and the cash bar was open. At the end of the evening a profit of over £400 was recorded, so it proved another successful event.
FOSP held a fundraising Race Night last night at Stoke Lodge Hotel. Everyone enjoyed "fun and a flutter" and an excellent sausage casserole supper. Some £600 was raised for the FOSP funds. We thank generous race sponsors, who provided raffle prizes and included: The Green Dragon, Stoke Fleming Shop, Stoke Lodge Hotel and Michael Sutton's Cellar. We also thank Dartmouth Film Society for the loan of projection and sound equipment.
Our very own John McCririck lookalike introduced the evening. Thanks to everyone who came and supported the evening. More photographs can be seen under Gallery
