Winslet Enjoys Community Life

Hollywood star KATE WINSLET has silenced rural neighbours accusing her of failing to enter into community life - by donating money and four hours of her time to a local charity.

The TITANIC beauty and her husband SAM MENDES reportedly sparked anger among residents of their new home village of Church Westcote, Gloucestershire, south-west England, by stepping up security measures at their mansion and refusing to integrate with others.

But the actress inadvertently blasted locals' claims when she delighted organisers of a charity for poor inner-city families in Gloucester by visiting their headquarters with daughter MIA.

A source says, "Kate recently visited the Family Haven and it was no whistle stop tour. She stayed for about four hours, playing games with the children as well as signing autographs."

The charity's fundraising manager CLAIRE McGRATH adds, "She has already made a sizeable donation and used her visit to donate boxes of clothes."
