Why Emsworth needs a neighbourhood forum
Too often residents don't know what decisions
are being taken in their name by local councils, and
don't have the opportunity to shape and influence those
decisions. This means councils can't always represent
people's wishes and aspirations well enough when
discharging their responsibilities

Monday 14th October - at 7.30pm Film Club at
the Community Centre SUMMER IN FEBRUARY
Drama(15) 100mins The Newlyn School of artists flourished at the
beginning of the 20th Century and the film focuses on the wild and
bohemian Lamorna Group, which included Alfred Munnings and Laura and
Harold Knight. The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded
as one of Britain's most sought-after artists, is at the centre of
the complex love triangle, involving aspiring artist Florence
Carter-Wood and Gilbert Evans, the land agent in charge of the
Lamorna Valley estate. True and deeply moving, the story is played
out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the
approaching shadow of The Great War. Dominic Cooper, Emily Browning,
Dan Stevens and Michael Maloney feature with Hattie Morahan as Laura
Knight. It is a haunting and heart breaking story, one that can be
thought provoking. Tickets £5, from Newsmag in the High Street, the
ECA office (Mon-Fri loam-12 noon) or phone Alison Patrick on 01243
