Volunteers Needed as Gloucestershire County Council give Funding to SkillZONE SkillZONE is urging more volunteers to come forward to take safety tours for young people at its Gloucester based Interactive Safety Education Centre. School visit numbers are on the increase after funding has been granted by Gloucestershire County Council to offer free visits to all children aged between 7 and 14years at school in Gloucestershire. SkillZONE is an interactive life size safety village made up of a street scene where young people learn to be safe in various situations such as hazards in the home, stranger danger online, difficulty in water and road safety. SkillZONE needs more volunteer guides to take groups around the village on a 2 hour tour, they encourage visitors to identify dangers and come up with ways to avoid risk and to learn to stay safe for life. Madeleine Jarrett SkillZONE Volunteer Manager, has been with the centre since April 2019. She says; “Just knowing that we are making children happy and safe is why we all work together to achieve this. Seeing children learn new skills to keep them safe for life is a boost to our volunteers and the children have an education they will never forget. I have worked in Volunteer management for many years but this is totally different and a very unique Volunteering Role with many of our dedicated Volunteers being with SkillZONE since we opened 6years ago. I am extremely proud to say I work for Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue and would urge anyone thinking of Volunteering to make contact with us� Volunteers come from all walks of life and just need to give a minimum of two days per month. Along with on- the- job training volunteers are offered courses in; safeguarding, first aid, health and safety and equality and diversity. SkillZONE also gives job references and pays for mileage. If you are interested in volunteering visit skillzone.glosfire.gov.uk/volunteer or phone 01452 834164. Photo attached: SkillZONE Volunteer To advertise call 01452 617040

Film Releases for December 2019 06th December 2019 Lucy in the Sky Starring – Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Dan Stevens, Zazie Beetz, Pearl Amanda Dickenson Natalie Portman plays Lucy Cola, an astronaut who returns to Earth after a transcendent experience during a space mission. But returning to solid ground is easier said than done, as Lucy quickly descends into a downward spiral losing touch with her friends and family, and when her lover begins an affair with an astronaut trainee, she begins to lose touch with reality, in a world that now seems too small.

Ordinary Love Starring – Liam Neeson, Lesley Manville, Amit Shah Joan and Tom have been married for many years. There is an ease to their relationship which only comes from spending a life time together and a depth of love which expresses itself through tenderness and humour in equal part. When Joan is unexpectedly diagnosed with breast cancer, the course of her treatment shines a light on their relationship as they are faced with the challenges that lie ahead and the prospect of what might happen if something were to happen to Joan. Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville play the leads in a brand new romantic drama film.

Motherless Brooklyn Starring – Edward Norton, Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, Michael Kenneth Williams, Leslie Mann, Alec Baldwin, Willem Dafoe Edward Norton stars and directs a gritty neo-noir thriller set in 1950s New York. He plays a private detective Lionel Essrog living with Tourette syndrome, who ventures to solve the murder of his only friend and mentor, Frank Minna. Armed with only a few clues and the engine of his obsessive mind, Lionel unravels closely guarded secrets that hold the fate of New York in the balance. The mystery takes Lionel from the gin-soaked jazz clubs in Harlem, to the hard-edged slums in Brooklyn, to the gilded halls of Manhattan’s power brokers as he is forced to contend with thugs and corruption to solve his friend’s death and save the woman who might be his only salvation.

Riley and her friends are settling down for Christmas, decking the halls and being merry as the big day gets ever closer, but as the seasonal parties go on, the group begins to lose bodies one by one. A black masked stalker is killing the group individually and the group wonders if they can trust any man in the vicinity including Riley’s new crush Landon. Whoever the killer is, he is about to discover that this generation’s young women are nobody’s victims and won’t go down without a fight, and when they do, they’ll dream of a Black Christmas.

When he tries to fix it in his grandfather’s basement, he suddenly disappears without a trace. When his friends investigate they realise they must go back into the game to save him however this time Spencer’s grandfather and his eccentric friend get pulled into the game.

20 December 2019 Cats Starring – James Cordon, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson, Ian McKellan, Taylor Swift, Rebel Wilson, Francesca Hayward Based on the hit Andrew Lloyd Webber musical of the same name, Oscar winning director Tom Hooper transforms the spectacular stage show into a big screen extravaganza. The story follows a tribe of cats called the Jellicles and the night they make the “Jellicles choice”, deciding which cat will ascend to the Heaviside Layer high in the sky and return home with a new life. With an all-star cast, the film reimagines the stage show for a new generation and includes state of the art effects, spectacular production design and dance styles, state of the art technology and a wide variety of dance choreography from ballet, to hip-hop, to jazz and tap. An exciting and remarkable experience, this is Cats for a new generation in a new format and is not to be missed.

The thrilling conclusion to the Skywalker saga, nine films and 42 years later it’s all come down to this. A year after the events of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the remnants of the Resistance face off against the terrifying First Order led by Supreme Leader Kylo Ren, the son of Han Solo and Princess Leia. As the ancient battle between good and evil begins to draw to a conclusion, the fate of the galaxy is in the balance as Rey learns how powerful she really is. Encompassing the magnificent history of the Star Wars saga, The Rise of Skywalker finishes the incredible story George Lucas began to tell back in 1977 when the first Star Wars film was released. With everything at stake, the Resistance face insurmountable odds to survive and save the galaxy against the might of the First Order, as an even more evil and terrifying threat lurks in the shadows.
