Recent Filming in Stockland
Those of you who were in and around Stockland last week may have noticed a film crew conducting interviews around the parish. This is due to the production company involved contacting SCPL regarding the Kings Arms Inn, and the effect of its closure on the local community.
After speaking to the Management Committee, it was apparent to the production company that Stockland matched the criteria they were looking for, as their focus is on the changing nature of public houses in England, and the adverse effects pub closures have on local communities, and how this exacerbates social isolation.
SCPL contacted various individuals in the parish who are members of community groups that have been impacted by the closure, and put them in touch with the film crew, hence all the recent activity. The idea is to produce a short film that is not for broadcast, but which will help the production company convince potential backers that a documentary program or series is both worthwhile and viable.
Whilst we cannot promise anything going forward, we hope that this venture succeeds and who knows – we might see more film activity in the not-too-distant future!
