STANHOE VILLAGE SCREEN:–
are pleased to announce our final film for the summer season.
LE MANS 66 (12) (True story) on Friday 14th July at 7:30 pm.
Matt Damon and Christian Bale star in this ‘thunderously exciting’ film based on the remarkable true story about Ford Motor Company’s attempt to create the world’s fastest car. American car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Bale) together battle corporate interference and the laws of physics to build a revolutionary race car and take on Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.
Even if you don’t enjoy motor racing, you will enjoy the drama, excitement and comedy of this wonderful, entertaining film.

From A Calendar of Sonnets by Helen Hunt Jackson
Some flowers are withered and some joys have died;
The garden reeks with an East Indian scent
From beds where gillyflowers stand weak and spent;
The white heat pales the skies from side to side;
But in still lakes and rivers, cool, content,
Like starry blooms on a new firmament,
White lilies float and regally abide.
In vain the cruel skies their hot rays shed;
The lily does not feel their brazen glare.
In vain the pallid clouds refuse to share their dews,
The lily feels no thirst, no dread.
Unharmed she lifts her queenly face and head;
She drinks of living waters and keeps fair.
Ruby :– July’s birthstone:–
The name actually derives from the Latin ruber - the word for red. Rubies are one of the 4 precious gemstones, with the other 3 being diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires. Rubies are incredibly durable and in fact are considered the third hardest of all gemstones, behind only diamonds and moissanite.
Their gorgeous colour and strong durability can help explain why rubies have been so favoured for so many decades. These stones hold up incredibly well, and their distinct colour has kept them popular.

If you are looking for jewellery that evokes those same feelings, going with a ruby gemstone just makes sense!
