News, events and schools' information for families across Bath and West Wiltshire

Bath City FC has teamed up with celebrated filmmaker Ken Loach to offer young filmmakers the chance to make short film to celebrate unsung heroes from across the community.

“Do you know a shop-worker, a delivery driver or a teacher, a bus driver, a nurse or other hospital worker, who has been an unsung hero during the COVID pandemic?” asks Joy Saunders, the Bath City FC Community Director. “These are all people who have been in increased danger of catching the virus yet whom we all take for granted. These pandemic heroes often work unsocial hours on low pay and with no choice but to keep going. We owe them all so much.

“At Bath City Football Club, in the heart of Twerton, we are surrounded by wonderful people like these. Now is the time to tell their stories. Can you help? Are you under 18 and can you use your mobile phone, iPad or whatever else, to make a short film of these ‘unsung heroes’? Record their voices as they tell their stories of working in these dangerous times. And make a little film – as short as two minutes or as long as ten.”

All entries will be in with a chance of winning a £100 cash prize, with the winning entry also being shared through BCFC media channels.
