UK Government Smart Meters Rollout 2010

Message forwarded by Sue Hackett, Ruyton XI Towns Parish Clerk.

From: Daniel Vaughan <>
Date: 20 April 2018 at 16:05:04 BST
Subject: UK Government Smart Meters Rollout 2020

Dear Mrs Hackett,

Perhaps you have already been made aware, but by 2020, the UK Government plans to have all homes and businesses installed with smart meters through their national rollout that is currently in progress. That said, research shows that a large portion of the population are still not aware of this.

As such, in conjunction with the smart meter authorities nationwide, we are working to ensure that all local councils have all the up to date information available for their citizens, giving the nation a smoother transition and more informed idea of their options. To this email we have attached two guides: one to domestic, and one for non-domestic smart meters, handed over to us by the Government.

I had a look on your site and thought that the news or useful links section would be the best fit for these links.
If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Kind regards,
Daniel Vaughan

Oswestry Film Society launch their new season with this remarkable story of unconditional love.

Jeannette Walls had the most unusual of upbringings – a nomadic existence, led across America by her unconventional parents. Her mother was an eccentric artist and her father, an alcoholic, did his best to distract Jeannette and her siblings from their impoverished life through wild flights of imagination. It was an upbringing which gave Jeannette the determination to carve out an adult life on her own terms. This true story, based on Walls' own memoir, is brought to the screen with an impressive cast: Brie Larson takes the lead with Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson as her parents.

Kenneth MacMillan's masterpiece of modern ballet is revived this Season as part of continuing celebrations of MacMillan's profound impact on British ballet, to mark the 25th anniversary of his death.

Manon's brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can't resist. 

With the Lescauts' encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.'s fortune. They are caught. Manon is arrested as a prostitute and deported to New Orleans, followed by Des Grieux. On the run, Manon dies from exhaustion.

Kenneth MacMillan's source for Manon was the 18th-century French novel by Abbé Prévost, already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. Renowned dance musician Leighton Lucas and his assistant Hilda Gaunt provided a score drawn from across Massenet's music, including his famous yearning Elégie as the theme for the lovers. The premiere was given on 7 March 1974, with the lead roles of Manon and Des Grieux danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet's repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance. 

MacMillan found new sympathy with the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty. Designs by his regular collaborator Nicholas Georgiadis reflect this, depicting a world of lavish splendour polluted by miserable destitution. MacMillan's spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid, complex portraits of the distinct societies of Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux's impassioned pas de deux – recalling the intensity of MacMillan's earlier Romeo and Juliet – that drive this tragic story, and make Manon one of MacMillan's most powerful dramas.

The Swinging sixties narrated and presented by Michael Caine himself and featuring an era-defining soundtrack.

Fancy a walk through 1960s swinging London? This is Michael Caine's personal take on Sixties London as he accompanies you in this stylish documentary. Presented and narrated by Michael Caine, My Generation playfully explores the impact of Britain's working class cultural revolution in the 1960s. Attitudes were changing and everything seemed possible. 

A wealth of archive footage, contributors including Marianne Faithfull, Paul McCartney, Twiggy, David Bailey and Mary Quant, and a spot-on soundtrack from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and The Who make for an exhilarating journey back in time. Caine is a delightful host and raconteur, sharing priceless anecdotes from the beginning of his career. And throughout this film, which was written by British TV legends Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, there are wonderful moments that capture the energy, style, fashion and sheer exuberance of that era. We guarantee you'll come out whistling 'Waterloo Sunset'.

Laure Bonville - BFI

"My Generation is an informative and entertaining spectacle that will appeal to all. Those who wish to relive their memories of the period will find homage in the picture. Those of a younger age will be engaged with a project that offers them an eye into a world that will probably never be experienced again." **** The Up Coming

Joaquin Phoenix echoes Taxi Driver's Travis Bickle in his performance as Gulf War veteran turned brutal hitman Joe in Lynne Ramsay's award-winning psychological thriller. Radicalised by the habitual brutality he has witnessed, Joe is given a new commission: recover young girl Nina (Samsonov) – daughter of an ambitious young politician – from a sex-trafficking ring. When he and Nina are swept into a violent conspiracy in the aftermath, both their lives are put at risk. Tensions build and the hitman's nightmares steadily take hold of his waking life. Will the murky world of 'private security' and dirty dealings be his death trip or cause his awakening? You Were Never Really Here sets out to bare the soul of its hammer-wielding anti-hero.

"A stunningly lean and intense avenger noir, its thriller storyline studded with cryptic flashbacks and off-kilter violence." Film Of The Week - Sight & Sound

It's about empowering each other; talking about the times we get it wrong, our mental health, our worries about being perfect. It's about admitting that we all need a little help.

Maya Forbes autobiographically inflected Infinitely Polar Bear stars Mark Ruffalo as Cameron, a man who suffers from bipolar disorder. After a breakdown forces him to leave his family and move into a halfway house, he attempts to rebuild a relationship with his two daughters, and win back the trust of his wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana). When Maggie decides to go to business school in New York, they decide that he will move back in and take care of the day-to-day care for the kids. Due to his mercurial nature, this leads to a series of quirky, funny, and sometimes frightening episodes.

   Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau were one of Hollywood's great comedic partnerships. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of their comedy classic from the pen of famed American playwright Neil Simon. Lemmon plays   Felix, an obsessive-compulsive on the verge of suicide after his wife leaves him. Taking pity on Felix, his friend Oscar (Matthau) invites him to share his home until he feels better. From the very start it is clear that the two of them are like chalk and cheese. Being around Oscar certainly cheers Felix up, but soon it becomes clear that Oscar's impulsive, fun-loving nature clashes horrendously with his friend's shy, stay-at-home disposition.

We are very pleased to see this wonderfully immersive and insightful documentary return to our screen as part of The Whittington International Chamber Music Festival.

A tale of creation and destruction, struggles and friendship, as told by the Quatuor Ebène, one of the world's most exciting string quartets.

Los Angeles Documentary Film Festival 2015 | Best Documentary Award

4 is an independent cinema documentary on one of the world's most exciting string quartets - the Quatuor Ebène.

The film takes viewers along on the quartet's tour of Italy, gradually drawing them into the ambivalent interactions that have come to characterise the four musicians' long-standing relationship. Bolzano, Perugia, Florence and Siena, Salzburg and Berlin, form the involuntary backdrop to a piece about relationships and the antagonism between ambition and reality.

Rather than focusing on the stage performances of the multiple award-winning French Quatuor Ebène, 4 takes us behind the scenes to observe the musical and human processes usually hidden from the eyes of the concert audience: the string quartet's struggle with scores and interpretational details, with colleague-friends – and with themselves.

The Quatuor Ebène allowed themselves to be observed at close quarters, wherever they were and whatever they were doing. Never putting on a front for the camera, they embraced the opportunity to rediscover themselves through the filming. The compellingly intimate view that emerges was made possible thanks to the trust that evolved between the musicians and the film crew.

As a result, we now have not only a unique testimony of the conflicting desires, sufferings and joys of music making, but also an interpersonal story of a quartet rich in exquisite intuition and subject to bizarre misunderstandings that cannot help but make us think.

"Never before have we revealed so much about our relationships among ourselves for a project, film or interview." - Raphaël Merlin, Quatuor Ebène

"The best movie about classical music I have ever seen. True art." - Nicolas Altstaedt, cellist and conductor


"4" is the unconventional - and exceptional - portrait of a string quartet... a biography of four people who know each other better than their own families. And whose shared work, as first violinist Pierre Colombet puts it, is always more than " just" music.

Phillip Goodman, professor of psychology, arch-skeptic, the one-man 'belief buster' – has his rationality tested to the hilt when he receives a letter apparently from beyond the grave. His mentor Charles Cameron, the 'original' TV parapsychologist went missing fifteen years before, presumed dead and yet now he writes to Goodman saying that the pair must meet. Cameron, it seems, is still very much alive. And he needs Goodman to find a rational explanation for three stories that have shaken Cameron to his core. As Goodman investigates, he meets three haunted people, each with a tale more frightening, uncanny and inexplicable than the last.

The film is directed by League of Gentlemen writer Jeremy Dyson and magician Nyman, and adapted from their own acclaimed stage-play of the same name. Reviewing the London production in 2010, Telegraph theatre critic Charles Spencer praised it as "ingenious, creepy and horribly enjoyable". 

"Nyman and Dyson have created a weird world of menace, despair and decay."

A young woman leaves her hometown to escape a troubled past and begin a new job. But when she is involuntarily committed to a mental institution she is confronted by her greatest fear — but is it real or just her delusion? With seemingly no-one ready to believe her and the authorities unable or unwilling to help, she must confront her fears head on. With twisting perspectives and a shocking narrative, Unsane asks questions about our perception of reality, our survival instinct and the system that is supposed to take care of us.

Maxine Peake gives a formidable performance as an aspiring female comedian standing up to a violent husband and the sexist Northern England club circuit. If you think that modern comedy is still lacking in gender equality, then this tough, streetwise British film shows that it's also made giant strides since the in-your-face chauvinism of working men's clubs in decades past. And yet, ill-treatment by men is something our eponymous heroine is grimly used to, from childhood beatings to an abusive husband (scriptwriter Tony Pitts, on terrifying form). 

More a film about the power of laughter and how to transform pain into humour than a straight-up comedy, Funny Cow is a fitting showcase for Peake. So often dazzling on stage and television, she's hilarious and heart-breaking here. There's fine support too from cast-against-type Paddy Considine as her middle-class paramour and a swooning, melancholic soundtrack by Richard Hawley.

Leigh Singer - BFI Film Festival

"Peake is hypnotically belligerent as an ambitious club performer trampling over prejudice and sticky carpets on the 1970s comedy circuit" **** The Guardian

"As a comedy Funny Cow has a subdued, wry humour rather than side-splitting hilarity. Tough and gritty, there is unhappiness and pain underneath the bravado – the characters are just trying to survive. But, in the spirit of balloons offered by a little girl, they prevail with defiant optimism and a good laugh." **** The Up Coming

Set in a dystopian future Japan, the paw-some stop-motion animation follows 12-year-old Atari (Koyu Rankin) on his noble quest to find his adored pet dog, Spots (Liev Schreiber). After a mysterious outbreak of 'canine flu', all the hounds of Megasaki City are exiled by the authorities to a colossal rubbish dump known as Trash Island. Atari sets out solo to rescue his beloved pooch, meeting a few new mongrel friends along the way. Together, they end up on a journey that will decide the fate of the entire prefecture.

"A winningly affectionate and delightfully detailed dystopian fable." Sight and Sound

"This is by some measure Anderson's weirdest concoction ever, in all sorts of good ways. And it probably counts as his most daring, too." **** Daily Telegraph

Director: Wes Anderson

Cast: Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston, Liev Schreiber, Koyu Rankin, Bob Balaban, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Kunichi Nomura, Ken Watanabe, Yoko Ono, Akira Ito, Greta Gerwig
