I’m a member of Fleet Film and regularly attend their (very impressive) showings. The last time I was there, prior to the main and short film, they showed a captivating slide show of different places in Fleet. Quite a few featured Fleet Pond (see above and below), so why not keep a look out the next time you’re at Fleet Film and, if you’ve not been to the Pond for a while, perhaps also pay a visit?

You can find out about the screenings at Fleet Film as well as view clips of the films by going to their web site here. There is also a lively feedback section on views on the various films. Fleet Film is a BFI Neighbourhood Cinema (see here).

The first film in 2018 is on Monday 8 January and is the Norwegian film The Wave. Annual membership of Fleet Film is £45 and covers 18 films.

If you would like to support Fleet Pond Society, details and benefits of annual membership can be found here.
