Now on Sale - ‘THE COLDRIDGE MILLENNIUM CELEBRATION NIGHT’ DVD (incl. the video ‘COLDRIDGE: THE GEM OF MID DEVON’)
At last, a great chance to buy your very own copy of these two historic, “Millennium” films on a single DVD!
These films were originally made by Coldridge people and they feature many familiar local ‘faces and places’ around the parish of Coldridge; you never know: YOU MIGHT BE ON IT! Buy a copy and check it out!
The original VHS recordings have lain neglected, but not completely forgotten, in a few cupboards around here, since 2000. Dusted off and freshly re-mastered by John Dike onto a single DVD for a recent Gardening Club meeting, it was suddenly realised how important these two films are as a piece of local, social history…and all very funny too! Thanks to John Dike and Ivan Kriznik, we have now found a way to reproduce multiple copies for sale to you, at a bargain price and all in aid of the Village Hall upgrades.
So: If you still live in the parish and would like to catch up with scenes and friends past (or sadly passed) and present, or if you used to live here and would like to re-visit your old haunts from the comfort of your distant armchair, or even if you have recently moved here and would like to see the funnier side of some of your new neighbours and friends, then please look no further.
COPIES ARE JUST £5.00 each (+ £1.50 p&p per copy if outside the parish), available to buy and collect at various local functions from 15th March, or by calling John Smith (83436), Ivan Kriznik (884233) or John Dike (83329). Alternatively you can email an order using this 'on-line' order form - click here.
All profits will go to Coldridge Village Hall.
Thanks for your support. IvanK.

Friday 5th April - Village Movie Night (Bohemian Raphsody)
Do you know a Scaramouche who can dance a fandango? Do you prefer your radio just a little ‘GaGa’? If the answer’s yes then you are going to love our April Movie Night feature - the 2018 Oscar and BAFTA award winning rock bio-pic “Bohemian Rhapsody”, Cert 12A.
Based on the true story of British rock band Queen, the film chronicles the very personal struggles of their lead singer Freddie Mercury (played by Rami Malek) and his transformation from an “outcast” immigrant into a world-famous and much loved rock-singer. Queen’s unique and revolutionary music provides the soundtrack this story which culminates with their legendary 1985 Live Aid concert performance at Wembley Stadium.
The trailer is available to view here.
Hall doors open at 7:30pm, the film starting at 8:00pm. Bar available with interval break and ice-creams.

Village Hall Update
The village hall is a valuable asset to our rural community. It provides a meeting place for our various groups, as well as space for entertainment and fun with our neighbours. It is available for hire at very reasonable rates and is well equipped for many uses. The upkeep of the hall is overseen by the Village Hall Committee and the cost of maintaining it is around £2000 a year. This money is raised through fund raising events and the biannual village fete.
This year we have been granted planning consent for a small extension to accommodate an improved serving area. Although we can and do, apply for grants they will at best, match our contribution, so we do need to raise money to make these improvements possible.
Thank you for your continued support.
