  • FILM NIGHT – ‘BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY’ Tuesday 30th April

    CHIDEOCK HALL EVENT

    Image result for bohemian rhapsodyFILM NIGHT

    TUESDAY 30TH APRIL 2019

    7PM FOR 7.30PM

    Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day

  • ADVICE FROM WDDC ELECTORAL SERVICES

    “The new home address form (1b) is causing rather a lot of confusion. This has been introduced due to legislation being recently passed to remove the requirement for home addresses from ballot papers and notices. Both the candidate’s home address and the address relating to the qualifications on form 1c need to be included on the home address form. The Electoral Commission have advised that leaving this blank or writing ‘as above’ is not sufficient in the qualifying address box and a candidate must repeat their home address where this relates to qualifications a, b and d and/or the address of their place of work in the case of qualification c. This all sounds rather detailed but the nomination papers that we have seen for informal checks so far have all had inaccuracies on this particular form and would not be deemed to be valid. Whilst there is no requirement for clerks to do any checking of any nomination papers for their council, if you are doing so, please be aware of this. It has to be said that this form is something that is new to the Elections Team and has taken some effort to understand.”
