Report on After Hours Group Event - Champagne Afternoon Tea and Film, Sunday, 3 March 2013

Featured ImageThe After Hours Group began the New Year in style (albeit a little late!!) with two splendid 'exotic' flower arrangements by members of the Flower Arranging Group.

Sunday 3 March, Fairburn Community Centre, we know how to live!! 40 `friends' got together to enjoy good company, good food - a Champagne Afternoon Tea followed by an exclusive screening of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel courtesy of Selby Globe Cinema.

The plot - British retirees travel to India to take up residence in what they believe is a newly restored hotel. Less luxurious than its advertisements, the Marigold Hotel nevertheless, slowly begins to charm in unexpected ways — a bit like Sherburn & Villages U3A really!!

There was lots of laughter as we were all probably able to identify with some aspects of the film, whilst enjoying brilliant quotes by the superb cast. Our favourite quotation being: "everything will be all right in the end .... if it's not all right then it's not the end".

The afternoon ended all too soon but as guests collected their belongings to go home, there were lots of smiling faces!!
