Here I am again – my 2nd blog after a successful movie night!
We had a meeting on the island last week with Volunteer Action Orkney – a small organisation dedicated to finding small pots of money for little projects around the Orkney Islands.
We had an extremely good turn out at the meeting and the idea of a regular movie/night and get together seemed more popular than I’d expected.
So that lit the fire under three of us, we got together and set up the projector in the community centre and called around the island. I supplied the movies, the nurse supplied the refreshments, and the newest incomer to North Ronaldsay supplied the technical know-how.
13 people sat around the silver screen watching Eddie Redmayne’s fantastic portrayal of the life of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. We decided, like it was ‘back in the day’ that we would have a movie night every fortnight with tea/coffee and biscuits to end the evening.
Here’s hoping that the North Ronaldsay movie night grows from here to be a night we all look forward to!
