 Just a quick note to say that the AGM will go ahead as previously advised. We will be at the BBQ area at the far end of the road into Valley Lakes. If you are planning to attend please bring your own chair.

Masks are optional but social distancing will be mandatory.

Hope to see you there.

AGM Notification and Some Updates

 As this somewhat unusual year draws to a close we have a few bits of news.

Firstly, we have a legal obligation to hold an Annual General Meeting. Although there have been some allowances made, we feel we are in a position to proceed safely. Unfortunately we won't be screening a film this month (more on that front below) so we won't have use of the Theatre. Instead we will be maximising our Covid safety, and enjoying a local beauty spot by having our first outdoor AGM at the Valley Lakes on Thursday 26th November at the picnic area at the very far end. The meeting will commence at 6:00pm. All members are encouraged to attend and to nominate for the committee (and bring your own chair). It would be appreciated if nominations could be forwarded by email to reelsfilmsociety@gmail,com, and the same for any notices of motion. Any questions can also be forwarded to that email.

On the film front it has been decided we will have screen a film on our originally scheduled December date. So on Thursday 17th of December put all thoughts of Christmas shopping aside and come and enjoy a good film (further information and a reminder will be sent out closer to the day), screening time will be our usual 7:00pm. Unfortunately we won't be able to provide our traditional food and wine. Seating restrictions will also apply as will recording of attendance for purposes of contact tracing, just in case.

It has been decided that we will do what a lot of people would like to do and pretend that 2020 never happened, All 2020 memberships will be rolled over into 2021 and we will be working to ensure that we have the usual variety of quality films to enjoy.
