Forman Flix

Forman Flix will continue on Friday January 31st. We will be screening the Edie, (Sheila Hancock) 

A Rotten tomatoes review says that Edie, following the death of her husband, breaks free from years of his control and rebels against her daughter's wish for her to move into assisted living by embarking on an adventure she and her father had always longed for: a trip to the Scottish Highlands to climb the world famous Mt. Suilven. Along the way, she hires young camping shop owner Jonny (Kevin Guthrie) to be her guide. Despite the generational differences, Jonny encourages Edie to fulfil her dream.  

Barrel Law 2-- Wind Farm Runs Out of Puff

Here is some great news from Stephen Lucking, who has been following and reporting on this issue from the start:

It was a surprise that the decision to refuse the appeal appeared on 23rd December but it made a great Christmas present.

The Andersons are very grateful for the support you have given us in fighting BL2 as am I.  I can't guarantee that there can be no BL3 but it does seem unlikely.

Thanks again and all the best for 2020.


Affordable Housing Survey - 2019

Following on from the 2006 and 2017 survey of valley residents, the C.D.T is now looking at the possibility of developing  Affordable Housing.
We would like feedback once again from the community in order that we may assess how high the need/desire is for affordable housing within the Borthwick Valley and would therefore ask as many of you as possible to complete a survey returning it using whichever method is the most convenient. We enclose a paper copy with this issue, but it is also available on the CDT website and on-line through
Although no sites have been identified as yet, we need to establish the community response before committing to a feasibility study and exploring how it may be funded.

200 club


The ‘200 Club’ began in the 1980’s as a fund-raising scheme for the Forman Memorial Hall. In that time, it has contributed around £400 every year towards the upkeep of the Hall.
The new ‘200 Club’ was relaunched in April 2018 with bigger and better prizes! Each month there are prizes of £50.00, £20.00 and £10.00.
Members will each pay £10 per year to become a member of the club. (That’s less than £1 per month). Each member is then assigned a number (from 1 through to 200) and will be given a ticket valid from April 2019 to March 2020. There are still numbers available for 2019 to 2020. Please contact Clare on 372000 if you would like to take part.
