Toy Swap Shop and Film Screening
Saturday 22nd February
10:30 am – 1:30 pm
A Toy’s Life and Beyond run regular ‘toy swap’ events, where you can bring in some unwanted toys, pick up something fresh, and learn about the concept of a ‘circular economy’.
As an added bonus, February’s Toy Swap will include a screening of the film “Waterlight: A Journey Down the River Mel”.
The Mel is a South Cambridgeshire chalk stream which has inspired a film based on poems by Clare Crossman. The film captures the essence of the river: its history, rich wildlife, conservation activities and memories and reflections of local residents. The film has been praised by local conservation groups and already been enjoyed by over 300 people at local showings in Cambridge and surrounding villages. After the showing there will be the opportunity to discuss some of the issues facing our threatened water courses.
There are two versions of the film, a 30 minute shortened version and a full 45 minute version. We will be screening both versions.
11:00 screening of 30 minute version
11:30 Q&A with the film-maker
12:15 screening of 45 minute version
13:00 Q&A with the film-maker
