From 1 November: COLETTE, starring Keira Knightley, Dominic West

After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy”, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendour of Paris.  Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghost-write for him.  She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a brazen country girl named Claudine that becomes a bestseller and a cultural sensation.  Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures go on to inspire additional Claudine novels.  Colette’s fight over the creative ownership of these books defies gender roles and drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionising literature, fashion and sexual expression.

An elderly gentleman had been experiencing serious hearing problems for a number of years.

He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased you can hear again."

To which the gentleman said, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will five times!"

The Royal Norfolk Island Agricultural and Horticultural Society Annual Show Day

Friday, October 18, 2019

On the 14th of October 2019 the annual A & H show commenced, beginning in the morning and finishing in the late afternoon. As usual, the event of the show meant that town was much busier than a regular day. The show is a highlight on the Norfolk Island calendar and something that the whole community can enjoy. There are a few attractions that are showcased yearly, such as the Lions Club of Norfolk Island Merry-Go-Round, delicious food, cold drinks and the fairy floss kindly made by members of the P&C. There are also many other interesting and entertaining demonstrations and activities such as the Baunti Byuutis, Ukulele Band, Devonshire Teas with the Lions Club, Face Painting, National Parks, Historical Society and the Flora and Fauna Society. The equitation is also an anticipated event, with horse riders being judged by Chris Girling. The Exhibition is in Rawson Hall, the community entries being in the main area of the building. Long tables are covered in vegetables, fruit, preserves, flowers, cookery, handicrafts, floral art and needlework. Up on the stage were some selected entries from this year’s Wearable Art Show. In the supper room onto the right hand side is the school exhibits, which is always full of artworks, sculptures, writing and reports that students have put a tremendous amount of effort into, in the hope of winning a prize in the show. As recognised in the brochure handed out to guests as they entered the Exhibition Hall, The Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society heavily thanks their sponsors and contributors. The continued support from everyone allows this traditional day to continue annually.
