JUBILEE FILM SHOW
On Saturday 1st June, the
village hall became the Westbury Odeon, as a full house assembled
for a 1950s film show. Before the programme started, they could
watch a slide show of sport and showbiz celebrities of 1952 to
music from the period.
The show got under way with a Tom
and Jerry cartoon, followed by newsreels which included news of
the death of the King and accession of Elizabeth II, the four
minute mile and the ascent of Everest. The main feature was 'A
Queen is Crowned', the only full length colour film of the
coronation, and winner of an Oscar in 1953. At the interval,
usherettes with torches and trays served ice creams and soft
A number of people suggested that
more film shows should be arranged, and anyone interested in
setting up a village film society should contact the chairman.
Uncertain weather at the start of the
day failed to put off the 29 high
quality fancy dress entrants, who presented guests of honour Christine and
Walter Ellen with the difficult task of selecting selecting the winners.
The children were entertained by a mystery clown, rumoured to be a
member of the Westbury Footlights.
After the traditional parade through the village, to the music of the
Bendix Kingswood Band, the prize winners were announced, and all
entrants received consolation prizes.
After the roll call of members at the Westbury Inn, the band struck
up again, and the parade marched to St Lawrence Church for the Club Day
service led by Fr Ewan Macpherson.
