Welcome to the next in the series of activities brought to you by the Staying Well project.

This week we have a great selection of cinema and film clubs going on in Hebden Bridge and Luddenden Foot.

Lisa Murdoch, marketing officer for Hebden Bridge Picture House, said: “We’re pleased to announce and introduce Saturday Tea Time Classics in partnership with the Staying Well project.

“All handpicked by you, watch your favourite iconic movies come to life on the big screen every third Saturday of the month.

“We need you! At the beginning of each film, the audience will have the opportunity to choose the next Saturday Tea Time screening for October onwards, from a selection of timeless classics - from true romance and westerns to action films and thrillers.”

Join them in August and September for:

Roman Holiday (U) Saturday, August 15, at 4pm

Gone With The Wind (PG) Saturday, September 19 (time to be TBC)

Tickets are £6.50 or £5.50 for concessions.

Luddenden Foot Community Association have also started a new film club with funding from the Staying Well project on the fourth Thursday of the month. The next will be on Thursday, August 27, at 2pm at the Luddenden Foot Civic Institute.

All they ask for is a donation of £2 and refreshments are on sale.

Heather Hartwell, of Luddenden Foot Community Association, said: “Come along for an afternoon of classic film entertainment and good company, watch award winning films like The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and Fiddler on the Roof.”

In case that isn’t enough film entertainment for you, don’t forget that Hebden Bridge Picture House have an Elevenses screening every Thursday from 10.30am.

For £5.50 you can watch the latest films with a free cuppa and biscuit included.

“Staying well, keeping active and most importantly having fun” is the aim of the Staying Well Project says Amy Harbour, director of Hebden Bridge Community Association.

People who lead active social lives are a happy bunch, who often see health improvements, she says.

There are plenty of groups you can get involved with and people who can offer a hand to find the right thing for you.

The Hebden Bridge Staying Well Hub is working with lots of people, community groups and businesses to develop new activities all over the upper Calder valley so there’s sure to be something nearby for you to try.

So, if you fancy giving a cinema or film club a go, or are looking for something new to do, get in touch with the Hebden Bridge Staying Well Hub.
