There’s a great deal of news to follow on some lovely HATTON events.  We hope you can all enjoy them.

Monthly events include the Hatton Village Film Club which usually meets the 1st Monday of each month at the Hatton Pub and Grill. Residents of Hatton and their friends and family are welcome to come along and enjoy the film FREE OF CHARGE.

The Residents’ Lunch generally takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

 Monday 11th January 2016 7.30pm

Hatton Film Club, showing Lad: A Yorkshire Story

It tells the story of a teenager called Tom Proctor who comes to terms with his father’s death through the kindness and quiet mentoring he gets from a national park ranger. The latter, whose fictional name is Al Thorpe, was inspired by a real-life ranger, the late Al Boughen, who played a similar role in Hartley’s life, when the film-maker was a teenager in Austwick, that lovely village below Ingleborough and the Norber Erratics.

If it sounds a bit twee, bear in mind that our hero gets community service at one stage for stealing a tractor and spraying manure all over the local bank.

Great scenery.
