Scrooby Cinema: Paddington 2
Hello for the last time this season, our next film will be Paddington 2 (PG) on Sunday 20 May.
Paddington is happily settled with the Brown family in Windsor Gardens, where he has become a popular member of the community, spreading joy and marmalade wherever he goes. While searching for the perfect present for his beloved Aunt Lucy's 100th birthday, Paddington spots a unique pop-up book in Mr. Gruber's antique shop, and embarks upon a series of odd jobs to buy it. But when the book is stolen, it's up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

SNAP (Scrooby Neighbourhood Area Plan)
Please visit the SNAP page for all the news and views about the Scrooby Neighbourhood Area Plan
A wonderful turnout at the Consultation Meeting last Friday, 12th May led to a significant amount of views and thoughts from those most affected - YOU. Very many thanks for a great afternoon.
- Now we will start the formal process with Bassetlaw District Council to accept the boundaries of the Plan and allow the hard work to start.
- Then we can apply for the funding to enable a quality SNAP to be developed.

You can see clearly the medieval fish ponds between the manor and the railway (the series of large depressions in the grassy area at the top centre of the picture).

Hester Benjamin: Adventures of a Pilgrim Daughter
Scrooby's own Jennie Robbins has published a book for children; a story of friendship, love and adventure, set in Scrooby, England, at the time of the Pilgrim Fathers. A work of fiction for young teenagers based on historical events in the year 1607.
Hester and Mercy are as close as sisters; nothing can come between them. But events are about to shake their peaceful village life to its roots and change things forever. How will their friendship survive when they are forced apart by their families and their faith?
You can buy the e-book for Kindle on Amazon.
