    Really enjoyed this film and meeting new people. The film made me think too about how life is much easier for us today and what little pleasures they had back then. Well worth seeing.

    Great movie, just makes you think how lucky we all are. After all their struggles of 1926 they were to face another war. Should be compulsary watching for everyone.

    hello just joined.Are all the events in this group in the evenings?

    October 2, 2013

    • Sue M.

      Welcome Margaret. A lot of events are in the evenings. Many of us work daytime hours but some people are retired or work shifts so there can be daytime events too. Often walks in the daytime especially at weekends and there can be other events also in the daytime if people want them. Anyone can suggest/schedule an event they want to go to and see who opts in.
