Weekly Bulletin for Saturday 28th May, 2016


Below is the program for May 28th, 2016.

The changes continue to the JAFWA regular program. This week we see the final episodes of “Charlotte” and “Knights of Sidonia” (season 2) also finishes.
This week marks the beginning of regular screenings of “Flying Witch”! Note: since we screened the first episode of “Flying Witch” only a couple of sessions ago, we will go directly onto episode #2 this week.

The seasons are a turning, and as we witnessed the weather was so inclement it seems a few people were either afraid or too distracted to attend JAFWA. For those of you who lost power in the storm, JAFWA was a good port of call. Though we will need to bring enough warm clothing, as the club’s heaters struggle to keep the Hall more than a few degrees above the outside temperature.

Again we would like to thank Lotteries West, who are preparing to provide us with a grant to continue our good work.
