In memory of Stuart Wight

Dr Stuart Wight, our longstanding Treasurer recently passed and he will be greatly missed

Dr. Stuart Wight passed away at home on March 28, 2024 after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
He will be remembered and loved for his kindness, humour and service to the community.
Following in the footsteps of his father, a chiropractor in Edinburgh since 1924, Stuart also received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree (D.C.) in Canada and practised in the family clinic from 1962 until 1987 when he established the Dr. Stuart Wight & Associates Chiropractic Clinic in Haymarket.

Stuart moved with his wife Christine (58 years of marriage) and their four sons from Edinburgh to North Berwick in 1975. He commuted to Haymarket everyday to his clinic until retiring in 1998. While raising the boys, Stuart became involved with local charity work e.g. The North Berwick Environment and Heritage Trust. He was a founding member and Treasurer of the North Berwick First Responders always ready for ‘on-call’ duty. Closer to our hearts, Stuart served as the Treasurer for NB Movies (formerly North Berwick Cinema Club) from 2007 to 2023. We will miss him very much.
The funeral service will be at 1pm on Friday April 12th at St. Baldred’s Church, Dirleton Avenue. In lieu of flowers and according to Stuart’s wishes, donations are welcome to Aberlour Scotland’s Children’s Charity for which a collection box will be available at the church.

Tickets will be available through Eventbrite by clicking on the image below.

WHERE

North Berwick Community Centre, Main Hall, 8 Law Road, North Berwick, EH39 4PN

Cert 12A, History/Drama/Biography, 1h 49m

Starring Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Flynn, Jonathan Pryce, Helena Bonham Carter

Directed by James Hawes

Click here to be taken to the Rotten Tomatoes Review of One Life

Movie Info Based on the book If It’s Not Impossible…: The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton by Barbara Winton, ONE LIFE tells the incredible, emotional true story of Nicholas ‘Nicky’ Winton (Johnny Flynn), a young London broker who visits Prague in December 1938. In a race against time, Winton convinces Trevor Chadwick (Alex Sharp) and Doreen Warriner (Romola Garai) of the British Committee for Refugees in Czechoslovakia to rescue hundreds of predominantly Jewish children before Nazi occupation closes the borders. Fifty years later, Nicky (Anthony Hopkins) is haunted by the fate of the children he wasn’t able to bring to safety in England. It’s not until the BBC show “That’s Life!” re-introduces him to some of those he helped rescue that he finally begins to come to terms with the guilt and grief he carried — all the while skyrocketing from anonymity to a national hero.

WHERE

North Berwick Community Centre, Main Hall, 8 Law Road, North Berwick, EH39 4PN

Surviving Translation Uncertificated, Documentary+ Q&A with Director Ling Lee and local film maker Tracey Fearnehough
Length: 48 mins + 30 mins Q&A, there’s time to mingle after
Country: UK, 2023

Director: Ling Lee
Based on Research by Charlotte Bosseaux
Producers: Ling Lee & Charlotte Bosseaux

If our words are mistranslated – our truth is not told.

Rejeen Musa was working as a subtitler on ‘Surviving Translation’ when the words she was translating began to unlock painful memories from her own past. As a female Kurdish migrant and a translator, Rejeen became the lens through which the film explores the trauma and life-altering consequences of mistranslation. 
In addition to Rejeen, the film captures testimonies from women who fled their homelands in the hope of building a new life in the UK. They speak candidly of the dangers and gender-based violence they suffered in their past and the arduous journeys they undertook to escape. They explain that – even after arriving in the UK – they need to communicate via an interpreter to secure medical care and apply for asylum; a process which causes them to relive past traumas and recurring unequal power dynamics. With their futures held in the balance – they must speak via a complete stranger who may or may not have their best interest at heart. 
To further illuminate this largely unexamined subject, the film also presents testimonies from interpreters, subtitlers and translators who describe the – sometimes harrowing – challenges that they themselves face. 
Raw testimony, poetic imagery, and academic research coalesce in this unique meditation on translation, isolation, and the meaning of ‘home’.
