Director: Felipe Bustos Sierra

Year of Release: 2018

Running Time: 96mins

Certificate: 12

Felipe Bustos Sierra’s feature charts the incredible true story of the Scots who managed to ground half of Chile’s Air Force, from the other side of the world, in the longest single act of solidarity against Pinochet’s brutal dictatorship.

In 1974 a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out the vital repairs of engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. Bustos Sierra – himself the Scotland-based son of a Chilean exile – reunites inspirational figures Bob Fulton, Robert Somerville, Stuart Barrie and John Keenan to hear their story. With unprecedented access, Nae Pasaran also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meets survivors of the period and hears the Chilean side of the story.

Nunhead CAN Meeting – 14th December, 5.45 pm to 7.45 pm

The issue of Loneliness has had lots of media coverage recently; which supports what so many said at the last Nunhead CAN meeting about it becoming a bigger issue particularly for young people.

A recent conversation with Claire Sheppard revealed the new national priorities agreed by the Women’s Institute movement which recognises many other points in people’s lives when they become lonely and isolated – including pregnancy or early parenthood; being a carer; suffering a long illness; etc. So, the meeting’s topic of Loneliness is going to be much broader than originally envisaged, and one that touches us all.

Hopefully this offers us much greater scope to strengthen networking, make better links in activities, and create opportunities for helping better address these issues together; and I’m sure we’ll have ideas about how public services could be better joined-up too.

It’ll be good that we can hold it at The Green too after the roof problems of the last two months, and an opportunity for all to meet Jasmin who manages the Centre, and hear about his ambitions for developing its role.

The Green is now OPEN

We have reopened the door today (16th November) after almost 7 weeks of closure.

Most of the regular activities have found alternative venues during the closure so please check with your trainer/teacher what exact day they will be returning to run their activities from The Green again.

The Ivy Club is opening next week as well and senior yoga and chair-based exercises are back on next week.

We thank you all on the patience and the great support you have shown us.

Free Arts Workshop for 8-12 years old

Starting tomorrow, Monday July 24, until Friday July 28, we will be hosting a free Arts Workshop for 8-12 years old.

From 10 am to 1 pm, the activities will be a a mix of art-play, building cardboard-junk sculpture, mirror distortion portraits, musical body movement based drawings using music and strange drawing contraptions. bespoke projects which will be directed into expressing whatever they would like to express with art materials at their own pace each day.
The end result is not the goal. The goal is to feel inspired and to have fun and enjoy discovering what they like and don’t like in the art materials and in the process of making.
There is something for everyone.

Drop-in sessions to start this week, with sign-up in place for a second workshop running from Monday August 28 until Friday September 1.
