The first initiative from the fledgling Jedburgh Youth Project is now up and running, and creating a real buzz of excitement in the town.
Anticipation is starting to build among young people in the royal burgh following the launch of the just-weeks-old project’s new film club.
With the help of Rory Robinson, a Jedburgh Grammar School English teacher, and Cheviot Youth, a club committee was established with a brief to research and pick eight films for this first season of showing.
The young people set to work and came up with an interesting, entertaining and eclectic mix of films, from the action-packed heroics of Captain America to the more subtle charms of Chronicle .
The first programme of movies runs until May next year and is open to all young people aged from nine to 18 years in the Jedburgh area.
Mr Robinson told The Southern: “This is great. An evening film club in Jedburgh is just what a number of my pupils have been asking for, as we do not have time within the school day to show films in their entirety – but have to offer instalments, which is not ideal.”
The full list of films and dates will be distributed to all primary and secondary pupils, and doors open for the first time at 6pm next Thursday (November 6) for the screening of “Captain America: Winter Soldier”.
