Set during the preparations for D-Day and the liberation of France, ‘Churchill’ takes us behind the scenes and reveals the real man behind the public face of Winston Churchill.
He was gripped by doubt and paranoia about D-Day: during the First World War, he had overseen the invasion of Gallipoli, a disastrous campaign that resulted in more than 250,000 people being cut down. Nearly 30 years later, he was terrified that it would happen again, and that he’d be blamed for even more deaths.
Brian Cox stars as ‘Churchill’, in a gripping biopic set during the most daunting period of the great man’s life.
Join us on Thursday 28th September at 2pm for this fantastic Silver Screen Showing! Places are limited so booking is essential. The bus will leave Bede Village at 1.40pm promptly.

Richmond Retirement Village in Bedworth would like to invite you to join the staff and residents on Friday 29th September, as part of Macmillan’s Biggest Coffee Morning, to help raise money for Macmillan cancer support.
Starting at 10:30am in the Care Centre Lounge, please join us to enjoy a cup of Tea/Coffee whilst enjoying a homemade cake or treat. There will also be the opportunity to look around the village and view any available apartments.
Louise Smith, Village Adviser, said “There are thousands of events up and down the country and we are very proud to be part of it.”
Cancer is the toughest fight most people will ever face, but the funds raised for Macmillan means that nobody has to go through it alone. The money raised will help Macmillan nurses and therapists continue their fantastic work with their patients.

Hedgehogs are every gardener’s friend, as they eat snails, slugs and insects... all helping to keep the gardens at Bede Village looking beautiful throughout the year!
Hedgehogs usually hibernate between November and mid March and animals must have enough fat reserves to survive hibernation.
If you'd like to help feed our friendly little chums, please follow these basic food guidelines:
Food and fresh water will encourage hedgehogs to return. Leave out foods like minced meat, tinned dog or cat food (not fish-based), crushed cat biscuits, or chopped boiled eggs. Specialist hedgehog food can also be bought from wild bird food suppliers. Never feed hedgehogs milk as it can cause diarrhoea; instead provide plain, fresh water in a shallow bowl.
Local children will be visiting the Richmond Bede Village Care Centre from with Trick or Treat delights for the residents to enjoy.
Please join us for an afternoon of fun and games.

The government's advice on getting ready for winter aims to reduce cold-related illness and deaths. Key tips include:
Try to keep your home warm. Keep your main living room at around 18-21°C (65-70°F). If you can’t heat all the rooms you use, heat the living room during the day and the bedroom just before you go to sleep. You can also use a hot-water bottle or electric blanket (but not both at the same time) to keep warm while you're in bed.
Eat well. Food is a vital source of energy, which helps to keep your body warm. Try to make sure that you have hot meals and drinks regularly throughout the day and keep active in the home if you can.
Wrap up warm, inside and out. Layer your clothing to stay warm and wear shoes with a good grip if you need to go outside. If possible, stay inside during a cold period if you have heart or respiratory problems.
Check on older neighbours or relatives to make sure they're safe and well. Make sure they're warm enough, especially at night, and have stocks of food and medicines so they don't need to go out during very cold weather. If you're worried about a relative or an elderly neighbour, contact your local council or ring the Age UK helpline on 0800 00 99 66.
