Bramley Community Centre to host Jamie Jones-Buchanan at film screening

Bramley Community Centre is set to host one of the town’s favourite sons, Jamie Jones-Buchanan, at a film screening this weekend, writes Keely Bannister.

Rugby star Jones-Buchanan will be on hand to answer questions following a screening of the film As Good As It Gets? – a sports film which follows Leeds Rhinos’ battle for a historic treble in 2015.

The screening will take place from 2pm until 4pm on Saturday, 29th February, at the Waterloo Lane community centre.

Entry is £1 and includes soup and a roll. All monies raised will go towards Bramley Elderly Action.

Transport is available for Bramley Elderly Action members who are invited to book via the office.

Mr Jones-Buchanan is Bramley through and through. He was raised in Bramley and is now bringing up his own young family in the town.
