Wondered what all the noise is about?

Fast and the Furious 6 being filmed at Bovingdon

Fast and Furious 6 is an action film being filmed currently at Bovingdon airfield and written by Chris Morgan and directed by Justin Lin. It is the sixth installment in the Fast and the Furious film series. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, and Luke Evans will star.

Fast Six was in development by February 2010 as the first film in the series to move away from the underground car-racing theme of the series’ previous films which was considered to have placed a barrier on audience numbers.

Pre-production begun in April 2011, and principal photography began in Shepperton and Bovingdon in July 2012. Filming locations also include the Canary Islands and Glasgow, Scotland. The film is scheduled for release on May 24, 2013.

Annual Memorial Service: St Lawrence Church

Sunday 4th November at 4.00 p.m.

The annual Memorial Service at St Lawrence Church will take place one week earlier than in the past, on Sunday November 4th, and at the earlier time of 4.00pm.This will allow the opportunity to visit the church yard during daylight and then come into church for the service. 

During the service we will be reading out the names of those in the community we know of who have died during the last year, together with any others you would like to be remembered. The service will include an opportunity to light a candle for those we have lost, and we will be serving refreshments afterwards.

All are welcome to this moving and reflective occasion.
