THE Bourne End and Cookham Probus Club were recently given an insight to the film industry during a special presentation.

Club members received a talk from Kate Bettison on her career as a movie extra.

Howard Fitzer, from the club, said: “Life as a Film Extra” - despite its apparent attractions, it seems that it is not an easy option; participants are ‘on call’ at highly unsocial hours, may have to travel long distances and endure constant repetition.”

There was also a Ladies Summer Lunch held at the Grosvenor House Hotel last month.
