Stars shine as Hollywood comes to Carterton

Carterton hosted its very own movie premiere with stars and film makers mingling with the crowds on the red carpet.

Two productions, My Carterton, The Movie and the animated Carterton Crox Movie, were making their debut on the silver screen having been created by a six-strong team at Carterton Daytime Support.

The project - part funded by West Oxfordshire District Council’s Taking Part Initiative - was part of a “Media Mash up” film making course.

Oscar-style awards and certificates were handed out by Cllr Jeanette Baker, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Health at West Oxfordshire District Council.

She said: “The films are fantastic and I would like to congratulate everyone involved. This project has done so much for the confidence of those who use the facility as well as teaching them valuable skills such as teamwork.”

Carterton Daytime Support is a day service for adults with learning disabilities based at the Community Centre, Shilton Park and operated by Oxfordshire County Council.
