Footloose in Italy

At the  meeting on 26th  March we had the privilege of welcoming Debra and David Rixon, a local couple, who produce travel films specialising in walks in some of the most beautiful parts in the UK and Europe; they publish under the “Footloose’” title.
They opened the meeting by describing how they plan and film the walks highlighting the fact that a lot of the shots end up on the ‘cutting room’ floor during editing. David was employed by the BBC as an editor on ‘Sports Night’
We watched two parts of their latest film on Italy – “Footloose in Italy lll” – covering The Amalfi Coast and Capri.
We had our highest attendance ever ( 28 members and 1 visitor) and judging by the questions and general noise in the room at coffee break, one of the most successful.
Our April meeting will consist of two presentations by members of the group; “The Art and Life of Carlo Crevelli” by David Woodbridge and “Rome” a short talk by Bob Haworth.
If you are interested in learning about Italian art, history, food, culture and travel please come and join us. We meet in the Club Room of the Community Centre at 10am to midday on the fourth Thursday of every month other than August.
