Current Activities

MONDAYS 1.30 pm to 2.30pm The Friendship Choir, led By James Geer.  Open to all who enjoy singing. We are now meeting in the lounge. £5 per session.

TUESDAYS 10.30 pm to 12 noon: Craft Group. This group meets in the Lounge – bring some knitting, crochet, tapestry or other craft. Enjoy a chat and maybe learn new skills.

WEDNESDAYS at 2.15pm to 3.15 pm:  Tai Chi (Qi Gong) (1st Group)  and 3.30 to 4.30 pm. (2nd Group)

Qi Gong stimulates the body’s energy levels through postural exercises and slow gentle movements grounded in ancient Chinese practices. It exercises but does not tire joints, tendons and muscles and uses the mind to support the body. It is really beneficial for many physical health conditions and also for combatting stress and fatigue and boosting mood. Come for a taster session – you may need to go on our waiting list. £30 for 6 sessions.

THURSDAYS at 10.30 am to 11.30 am : Extend – Music and Movement Class, with Ffion Wilkes. This group is meeting in the Lounge – come and improve your fitness now that life is opening up again! Gentle exercises to music. £4 per session. Again, do come for a taster.

FRIDAYS from 10.30 am to 12 noon: Regular monthly Coffee Mornings in aid of local charities. On 2nd July, the proceeds went to the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance.(We raised £40, thank you). The next one will be in aid of Macmillan and takes place on Friday 1st October.

SNOOKER  We have a snooker room with a 3/4 size snooker table upstairs, which may be used by members any time we are open: £5 for a morning’s play.
