UK TV premiere for Fakers.

Back in 2004, an unknown young actor called Tom Chambers made his movie debut in Fakers, a comedy crime caper set in London’s fine art world.

Six years on, Fakers receives its first UK TV screening on Bank Holiday Monday (May 3rd), at 23:50 on BBC1.

It’s a fun movie with a few celebrity cameos (Rula Lenska, Art Malik, Larry Lamb) along the way, and well worth catching.

Week commencing 26 April 2010.

It is not in a bowlers nature to complain! However, we are not having much luck – either on or off the green. We only have the bare minimum of players and quite a few have been, and still are, either ill or suffering from back, knee, and other orthopaedic problems. So please – if you can walk or even crawl, you would be a most welcome addition to the Club. Anyway, enough whinging and excuses; we did not do very well this week!

Tuesday League – Away to Whitworth Park.

Still no wins after four matches. We only won one game to Whitworth’s three. The resulting points tally was 72-55. That puts us about fourth from bottom. The only way is up?

Next match: Home to Matlock Park, 6th May, 6.30 ish. Please come and support us.

Thursday League – Away to Lafarge, Hope.

Although we again did not win, the ride up to Hope and Castleton is worth it. A nice lunch and then a game of bowls can’t really be bad, even if we lose.

At the time of playing the match, believe it or not, we were third in the league. Although not winning, we have had a good aggregate score. Unfortunately this week we lost all three doubles games. We redeemed ourselves a little by winning the singles games 4-2. However the total scores finished up 135-110 to Lafarge.

Next match: Home to Matlock Park, 6th May. 1.30 ish.

We are having our first internal Club competition this Sunday at 2.00 pm.

Again, although it’s a Bank Holiday, we will be on the Green on Monday at around 6.30. Everyone is most welcome.

– John B.

Martin C has recently uploaded a three-part video of last year’s parade, featuring some high-flying camera work from Mike H in the bell tower (in Part 1), the church service (in Part 2) and some interviews with the participants (in Part 3). The total playing time is just over 25 minutes.

This week’s Stunner

Here’s our pick of this week’s stories of local interest. You can read the full newspaper online, browse the week’s main news stories, or buy a copy from Janet at the shop.

Page 5:Outstanding across the board at pre-school.

Many congratulations to Parwich Stepping Stones, who have been given an “outstanding” review by Ofsted. Stepping Stones were awarded the highest possible grade in every one of the 17 categories.

Tracy Marshall, chair of the school committee, said: “The committee has put in an exceptional amount of hard work in to achieving this standard and thoroughly deserve it, especially so as we have recently undertaken a mammoth task of moving premises within the last 12 months.”

On the Stunner’s Twitter stream (@AshbourneNews), the paper tweeted that Stepping Stones was “the first in the area I’ve ever seen get outstanding grades across the board. Incredible!”

Pages 20-21: “Celebrating St. George.”

A splendid two-page photo spread on Sunday’s celebrations.

Page 22: There’s a reminder for Saturday’s May Day concert in St Peter’s Church, featuring the Essentially Brass Quintet and organist Christian Cartwright. Call 529 for tickets.
