Fifteen-year-old Charley Thompson arrives in Portland, Oregon with his single father Ray both eager for a fresh start . While Ray descends into personal turmoil, Charley finds acceptance and camaraderie at a local racetrack where he lands a job caring for an aging Quarter Horse named Lean On Pete. The horse's gruff owner and his jockey help Charley fill the void of his father's absence-until he discovers that Pete is bound for slaughter, prompting him to take extreme measures.

MBC SINGING FOR FUN  returns to Tesco Community Room on Wednesday October 17th. We often have evenings with songs by specific artists or groups. This time we do the opposite with songs that were the only big hits for the artists (i.e. "One Hit Wonders"). You'll know most of the songs! It is a scientific fact that singing with others is good for you -- and that's not just on Sundays. Words are provided, music on acoustic guitars. Why not come along to Tesco at 8pm. It's free including refreshments. Friendly welcome guaranteed. For songs see:

WREATH MAKING  On the evening of December 11th Leone Stockdale will be coming to ECCH to run a workshop to help us create festive door wreaths. This is great fun to do, and last year’s evening was a great success. If you would like to book a place please register with Jan Lovegrove, 01628 577292. The cost of the workshop is £20 with materials provided, (rings, wire, natural decorations and ribbons) plus all instruction and guidance. Please just bring apron, secateurs and any fresh greenery you particularly want to use. The course runs from 7pm to 9pm with a finished wreath to carry home.
