Fair trade, film and quiz scheduled

Coffee, questions and cinema are being hosted by Cove Burgh Hall in the new days.

A fair trade coffee morning will run from 10am to 12 noon this Friday (February 22), with home baking, coffee and tea served. Crafts and fair trade products will also be on sale.

The following night (Saturday) there will be another of the regular quiz nights in aid of the hall, which has been run by the community since  Argyll and Bute Council threatened to close it down ten years ago.

The quiz starts at 8pm for teams of up to six, which can be made up on the night. The entrance fee is £3 – bring your own bottle, glasses and snacks.

Then on Thursday February 28 Cove and Kilcreggan Film Society will be showing Academy Award nominated crime drama Frozen River (2008).frozen-river-ver2

Melissa Lee and Misty Upham star as two women – one white, one Mohawk – who’ve fallen on hard times, are drawn into the shady world of border smuggling across the frozen St Lawrence River, with a New York State trooper as their opponent in a tense game of cat-and-mouse.

Doors open  at 7.30, with lights down 7.45. Admission free to members, £4 guests, £3 concessions.

There is free popcorn, with refreshments available or you’re welcome to bring your own.
