  • Day Trip to Whitsable and Boardstairs

    Tothill Street

    £35.00

    This Meet up has been rescheduled for the 7th of September Lets visit 2 beautiful sandy beaches in Kent just before the winter sets in. We will first visit Whitstable which has recently increased in popularity with Londoners in recent years, giving it something of a hip reputation. Its working harbour means oysters are plentiful around these parts. Whitstable is a seaside town on the north coast of Kent in south-east England, 5 miles north of Canterbury and 2 miles west of Herne Bay. It has a population of about 32,000, the place to go if you like quirky shops, oysters, and the English seaside. Next up Broadstairs this seaside is often overlooked sandwiched between the better-known towns of Margate and Ramsgate, , but after much research i believe you get more for your money, it's the best of the three. It doesn't tend to get quite as busy as Margate, but its sandy, sheltered beach Viking Bay is one of the best in the south-east. It's also got a beautiful collection of beach huts for anyone seeking that Instagram shot, like myself. And some gorgeous houses look down on the beach from the cliffs above. Head to Morelli's Gelato to cool down before exploring the town centre. The Dickens House Museum celebrates the author's links to the area and have have a bite to eat IMPORTANT INFORMATION We will leave London at 8.30 am sharp Please leave out early to arrive by 8.15 am, be mindful we don't want to keep the early birds waiting. Includes • Privately-hired, luxury return coach travel from London to 2 beaches in Kent. Toilets well be on board if over 49 people are attending, if not there will be toilet stops along the way. We should return back to London by 8 .30 pm, however please be mindful of traffic, road works or motor accidents along the way so they maybe some delays.

    Lets go and enjoy the sun, fresh air and each others company, picking juicy, ripe and healthy fruit in the countryside! Relax; enjoy breathing the fresh air; chat; enjoy the green open space; browse the wonderful range of ready-picked apples, juices and honey etc in the farm shop; and pick all you the vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants you want and can! Days out don’t come more fun than wandering through sunny fields to gather a whole lot of goodies before going back home to eat and bake the juicy, fresh fruits of your labour – fruit salad, juices, cakes, puddings, pies and homemade jam! Grab some containers or baskets and love the satisfaction of gathering your own goodies. Visit the farm shop for ready picked apples, juices and honey! In addition to the exercise and sense of well-being obtained from being in the fresh air, fresh fruits are a nutritionally healthy and important part of the diet, providing the body with a range of essential and valuable nutrients including vitamins and minerals, fibre and antioxidants (as well as being low in fat.) Home Cottage Farm Raspberries, blackberries, Victoria plums, damsons, Conference pears, and apples (Spartan, Cox, Bramley, Discovery, Russet and many other varieties!) are available throughout September – enjoy picking the biggest and ripest of fruits and dropping them into your basket! ‘Pick Your Own’ (PYO) fruit is a fun and enjoyable experience and attracts visitors back year after year. Home Cottage Farm is a soft fruit and apple farm situated in Iver, Buckinghamshire. Tasty raspberries, plums, damsons and blackberries are available in August, September and October together with most of the 18 apple and pear varieties. Honey is extracted from bees which help pollinate the fruit. Free range chickens and sheep can be seen around the farm. Home Cottage Farm grows top fruit (apples, plums and pears) and soft fruit (raspberries and blackberries) sold through ‘pick your own’ and ready-picked apples in the Farm Shop. The farm was bought in 1975 when it was a jungle of neglected apple trees with inaccessible fruit of unwanted varieties. It has been progressively pruned to make way for smaller apple trees and soft fruit. Environmental management: Home Cottage Farm are not organic growers, however, pesticides are only used when monitoring shows that there is a need and those choosen degrade quickly. There are a range of bat and bird boxes around the farm. A wildlife hedge has been planted and the margins of the orchards are uncut so plants and insect life can develop. Home Cottage Farm has a good count of birds and butterflies and are keepers of strong, healthy bee colonies. Home Cottage ‘Pick Your Own’ Farm offers the opportunity to pick delicious soft fruit, apples and pears which are weighed, paid for based on the kg charge of the respective fruit and then taken home to eat. Entrance charge: Free Farm shop: Stocked with ready-picked apples, juices and honey!

  • Film: 'Bhaji on the Beach' - Sun 18th Aug, 5.40pm, Bfi Southbank

    Join me and fellow members to watch the film ‘Bhaji on the Beach.' We'll meet beforehand in the bar of the cinema at 5.25pm so that we can all say 'hello' and those wanting a drink/snacks can buy them, watch the film at 5.40pm and then meet again afterwards. For those that would like, we can go for a drink and a chat and to reflect upon the film after. I'll let you know my seat number when I have booked it so that hopefully we can sit together. Look forward to meeting some of you soon. My mobile no. for anyone that cant find us is:[masked]. I'll let you know what I'll be wearing. Tickets can be bought online or by phoning the box office or on the day. Tickets cost £ Film Synopsis Bhaji on the Beach is an entertaining drama about nine Indian women from Birmingham, England, who are thrown together on an outing to the Blackpool seaside. The feminist tour guide has her hands full with three generations to handle. An assembly of Indian women, both immigrants and their British-born brethren, travel to the English seaside in this comic drama. The plot focuses on a trio of young women caught between tradition and independence: Ginder (Kim Vithana), who risks the uncertainties of social ostracism and single motherhood in order to escape from her abusive husband; Hashida (Sarita Khajuria), who jeopardizes her promising future in medical school when she becomes pregnant by her West Indian boyfriend (Mo Sesay); and Simi (Shaheen Khan), who integrates her feminist politics and her commitment to her culture by heading up the Saheli Asian Women's Group. To provide the women of her community with a chance to get together and enjoy themselves, Simi organizes a ladies-only trip to Blackpool, a seaside resort town that resembles Atlantic City. Along for the ride are boy-crazy teens, conservative matrons, and a garish visitor from Bombay, each of them offering a singular perspective on Asian immigrant culture. Asha (Lalita Ahmed), a middle-aged wife, mother, and newsstand proprietor, spends much of the trip experiencing picturesque visions in which an Indian goddess reprimands her for the missed opportunities in her life. Introspection gets pre-empted, however, when Ginder's husband (Jimmi Harkishin) and his brothers show up looking for a little involuntary family reunion. The sari-clad elders in the group just don't know what to make of the sexual problems of these younger women. Reviews ‘...first-time director Gurinder Chadha extracts maximum fun from her sedate matrons and wild teenagers let loose in a working-class holiday hell; she is, in fact, as comfortable with the bhaji as the beach. Segal is wonderfully wrong-headed as chief of the censorious aunties, and Ahmed delightful as the wistful shopkeeper Asha, who meets a camp old English actor (Cellier) and cavorts with him in Bollywood daydreams.’ ‘Consistently warm, and in moments savvy and irreverent, this feminist day trip of Asian immigrants to a British searesort contains some lurid and funny fantasies staged in the colorful Bollywood style.’ ‘Gurinder Chadha has done a fine job directing this unusual slice-of-life drama which, like My Beautiful Launderette, portrays a subculture in Britain.’ 'As the quietly charming British film "Bhaji on the Beach" begins, a busload of Asian Indian women set off from their community center in Birmingham for a day at the beach in Blackpool. At first glance, they seem to have nothing in common aside from their desire for sun and sand, but Simi, the group leader, envisions the outing as more of a crusade. In her pep talk before the bus leaves, she reminds the women they've struggled under the burdens of racism and sexism, and advises them to have a "female fun time." From the looks on their faces, we can see they don't share Simi's idea of a fun time, and by the end of the film, after much laughter, some romance, many secrets and a few tears, we realize that a female fun time means very different things to each one of them. The film's director, Gurinder Chadha, uses the day trip as a way to look at issues in the British Asian community, where old traditions and new ways make for uncomfortable situations. The passengers on the bus include older women who are firm in their conservative attitudes, a couple of teenagers who are basically on the lookout for boys, a mother who is escaping for the day from her abusive husband, and a medical student who has a secret: She is pregnant by her black boyfriend, a West Indian. The pregnant student and the woman with the abusive husband give Chadha the opening to examine deeply felt issues among Asians in Britain, who feel that both divorce and interracial dating are European innovations they would be better off without. The older women make no secret of their prejudices, but Chadha doesn't go for a simple demonstration of that. Instead, in a scene both daring and intricate, she places the two older ladies in a tea shop where, while the British proprietor insults them with racist observations, they essentially ignore her in order to make their own, also racist, observations to the medical student. Meanwhile, the teenage sisters wander away from the group, and one of them gets involved in a charming subplot involving a daylong flirtation with a local boy who likes her. She is flattered and shy; he is persistent but actually quite nice. And of course the girl's sister and the boy's best friend end up as the odd couple; romance always leaves some leftovers. The backdrop for their day is the boardwalk at Blackpool, sort of an Atlantic City caught in a time warp. For the pregnant woman, the day is an opportunity for reflection. Should she have the child and endanger her lifelong ambition of becoming a doctor? Or have an abortion and lose not only the child, but its father, whom she loves? The way the movie resolves this question is both thoughtful and surprisingly moving. "Bhaji on the Beach" is at the opposite end of any scale from the British films that win wide audiences here, such as "Howard's End" or "Four Weddings And A Funeral." In its examination of outsiders in a changing society, it shows people who have left their homeland and tried to bring it along with them, only to find that in a new home there are new values. There is also a younger generation. And given the fact that every older generation believes all of its values have been lost by the young, it is a wonder there are any left to pass along, after centuries of such decay, but there are - and the way the movie makes that clear is one of its strengths.'
