‘A Year of Marvellous Ways’ by Sarah Winman
Monday 24 July – 7.30pm
The Jafflong, 42 East Dulwich Road
Cornwall, 1947. Marvellous Ways is a ninety-year-old woman who’s lived alone in a remote creek for nearly all her life. Recently she’s taken to spending her days sitting on the steps of her caravan with a pair of binoculars. She’s waiting for something – she’s not sure what, but she’ll know it when she sees it.
Freddy Drake is a young soldier left reeling by the war. He’s agreed to fulfil a dying friend’s last wish and hand-deliver a letter to the boy’s father in Cornwall. But Freddy’s journey doesn’t go to plan, and sees him literally wash up in Marvellous’ creek, broken in body and spirit.
When Marvellous comes to his aid, an unlikely friendship grows between the two. Can Freddy give Marvellous what she needs to say goodbye to the world, and can she give him what he needs to go on?

‘Finish What You’ve Started’
Wednesday 12 July – 7.30pm
The Palmerston, 91 Lordship Lane
Next month crafters can bring along any unfinished project to work on. Do you still need to finish your Macramé pot hanger following last month’s ‘Top of the Pots’ event. Or perhaps the Twiddlemuff you made in May still needs embellishing.
If you have a project that needs to be finished, or you are stuck and needs some help or perhaps you’d like to get a new project started, just bring it along to our next meeting. If you don’t anything, but are interested in joining the fun, come along for a drink and a chat.
Got any questions, email Ciaran Dance

About the Film
The mass evacuation of more than 330,000 Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk in May 1940 was one of the most dramatic and pivotal episodes of the Second World War.
Told from three points of view – land, sea and air – Dunkirk unfolds with a palpable sense of dread and tension, evoking the very human and immediate desire to survive.
