Film Club
The Film Club is held at the Field Lodge Care Home, London Rd, St Ives , starting with light lunch at 1.30pm and film show at 2pm. Contact Gordon if interested – only 14 places available.

The expectation is that our members will not normally arrive for the event before 1.15pm.

Field Lodge is a special category of venue as it is home to its residents.  This means  we have to be understanding and respect what is asked of us.

With the Home now full and many visitors to residents, we cannot normally expect that any parking slots will be available.  So you may need to park off site. If your passenger has a mobility issue, then drop them off and find parking nearby on the Old London Road.  Directions: exit and turn left towards St. Ives, turn left at the roundabout and then immediately turn left again. Drive to end of road – a dead-end at the garage. Take short walk to back to Field Lodge.

If you do find parking at Field Lodge then please ensure that you do not impede ambulance access. Please complete the visitors book including car registration no. if you are parked on site.
