The Bridge delivery volunteer needed
Due to the previous delivery person moving out of the village, we need someone to undertake delivery of 21 copies of The Bridge in the area from the Hollow and along Deep Lane towards the church (but not quite as far as the old school).
21 copies of the magazine would be delivered to you on or around the 28th of each month. Delivery doesn't take long and helps ensure that every house in the village gets a copy of The Bridge each month. If you would like to take this on, please contact Liz Garrett on 01373 839060 at firstname.lastname@example.org

Allow yourself to relive your childhood with a grown‐up, overworked Christopher Robin when he is reunited with the friends of his, and probably our, youth.
Winning the 2019 BAFTA award for best documentary, Free Solo documents the jaw‐dropping feat of climber, Alex Honnold, attempting to scale the face of 900m (3,000 feet) high El Capitan in Yosemite… without a rope.
The choice is stark — success is only possible if his climb is perfect; failure of any degree means certain death. Most of us struggle to understand why anyone would take on such a ridiculous feat; even with the best modern climbing gear it would seem almost impossible, but without is beyond comprehension.
Alex Honnold's assessment of risk and consequence is intriguing; his drive to follow his dreams and achieve his aspirations illustrates his immense physical and mental strength. This National Geographic documentary attempts to explore Alex Honnold, the person and the climber as, like any elite athlete, one informs the other.
Ultimately, though, this documentary is about a solo climber's attempt to conquer a granite monolith first climbed in 1958, when it took 47 days with fixed ropes and pitons.
Stomach‐turning athleticism combined with award‐winning photography make for an edge‐of‐the‐seat experience. If you enjoyed the documentary style of ‘The Huntress’ last year, you'll enjoy this award‐winning film.
Free Solo brings our 2018/2019 season to a close so don't miss out as we won't be back until September!

Corsley Photo Archive
Help us tell Corsley's story!
Houses are altered, pulled down or extended; landscapes change, trees are cut down, hedges disappear and, because we live here all the time, these changes go un-noticed. These alterations, recorded in the odd snap here and there, are often in the background. This project has been set up to document and display those changes for posterity.
We would do this by scanning, archiving and displaying the photographs and building a website. If the photos have creases or are a bit faded we can retouch the scanned image and supply a rejuvenated copy. If you are interested in this idea and can help as part of a study group or by letting us see your photographs, then do please get in touch with Phil Plumb or Liz Garrett.
