Stanhoe Village Screen:-

Fri 15th November at 7:30pm Love Is All You Need (15) (romantic drama): In English and Danish with appropriate subtitles.

Set in the beautiful Italian town of Sorrento, this is a slice of sheer life-affirming magic; a chance of a new beginning for Philip (Pierce Brosnan) is an impossible boor and the irrepressible, courageous and yet very fragile Ida (Trine Dyrholm). A real Gem with comedy and tragedy intertwined.

Tickets £5 on the door to include a complimentary drink.

And finally: Some November poems:-

November, by Thomas Hood

No sun – no moon!
No morn – no noon –
No dawn – no dusk – no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member –
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! – November!

November comes, by Clyde Watson

November comes
And November goes,
With the last red berries
And the first white snows.

With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next spring.
