Whitby Civic Society/Monday 16th April


Our next talk is being presented by Mike Potter of Pickering Civic Society at 7:15pm on Monday April 16th at the Coliseum. Mike will describe the ‘Slowing the Flow’ flood management project to reduce the frequency of floods in Pickering. It involved working with nature to build a flood storage area, install a large number of leaky woody dams and heather bale dams within streams, two timber bunds, 44 hectares of woodland and other land management procedures. During heavy rainfall over Christmas 2015, the measures reduced the flood peak by 15 – 20%. This cost-effective flood alleviation project was innovative in its concept and a most interesting talk will describe the project in more detail.

Admission is £1 for members and £3 for guests and non-members.

Please note : talk commences at 7.15pm

Whitby Film Society presents “Graduation” 2016

Thursday 29th March

Romeo Aldea (49), a physician living in a small mountain town in Transylvania, has raised his daughter Eliza with the idea that once she turns 18, she will leave to study and live abroad. His plan is close to succeeding – Eliza has won a scholarship to study psychology in the UK. She just has to pass her final exams – a formality for such a good student. On the day before her first written exam, Eliza is assaulted in an attack that could jeopardize her entire future. Now Romeo has to make a decision. There are ways of solving the situation, but none of them using the principles he, as a father, has taught his daughter.

Thursday 22nd March 2018

Love, life, and the struggles of a mother bringing up a son in the the late 70’s. The ignorance of a free spirit against the needs of a young man trying to find his true character and beliefs. Living in a bohemian household shared with 3 like minded spirited people to help pay the rent, his mother tries to establish bonds that he cannot deal with. She cannot deal with his inability to talk, and enlists the help of other females in his life to share the burden of his upbringing. Slowly life unravels for them all without understanding how. In spite of their perceived struggles, they all go on to live defined lives without any serious consequences.
