Support Flicks in the Sticks in Myddle

On Wednesday, three people from the mailing list were at the Myddle Flicks in the Sticks to see the film `The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society`.

The new guests were impressed with the venue, good parking, tea, coffee wine, beer and snacks at the beginning and at half time, excellent big screen and sound (not ear poundingly loud) and a chance to meet a new and friendly group of people.

Oh yes, and the film was excellent - good story, beautiful scenary and eliciting both laughs and damp eyes.

Please support this venture, which is so easy to get to,

See you at Bohemian Rhapsody next month.

BOOKA PRESENTS
An Evening with

DAVID NOTT 
WAR DOCTOR 
SURGERY ON THE FRONTLINE


Join us for an evening in the company of David Nott one of the world's most experienced trauma surgeons as he talks about his new book War Doctor: Surgery on the Frontline.

For more than twenty-five years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world's most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993, to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out life-saving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

The conflicts he has worked in form a chronology of twenty-first-century combat: Afghanistan, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Darfur, Congo, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Gaza and Syria. But he has also volunteered in areas blighted by natural disasters, such as the earthquakes in Haiti and Nepal.

Driven both by compassion and passion, the desire to help others and the thrill of extreme personal danger, he is now widely acknowledged to be the most experienced trauma surgeon in the world. But as time went on, David Nott began to realize that flying into a catastrophe – whether war or natural disaster – was not enough. Doctors on the ground needed to learn how to treat the appalling injuries that war inflicts upon its victims. Since 2015, the foundation he set up with his wife, Elly, has disseminated the knowledge he has gained, training other doctors in the art of saving lives threatened by bombs and bullets.

War Doctor is his extraordinary story.

We're delighted to welcome David to Oswestry for what should be an inspirational event!

Event Format: Joe will be 'in conversation' with Caroline Lang from Moreton Hall School. This will be followed by an audience Q&A and book signing  



Date: Tuesday 26th February 2019
7.30pm (doors 7.00pm)

Venue: Wynnstay Hotel, Oswestry, SY11 2SZ

Tickets: £8 (fully redeemable against a signed copy of War Doctor: Surgery on the Frontline)


David Nott is brave, compassionate and inspiring - War Doctor is all of those things and more: a wonderful book that has left me in floods of tears. He needs a knighthood and his book needs to be in every house. -- Adam Kay, author of This Is Going to Hurt

BOOK NOW!     

Don't miss this chance to see David Nott and hear his extraordinary story!
