Activities & Events

Current Activities

Extend exercise classes: For those who are missing their regular Extend classes, or for those who feel like some gentle exercise while the lockdown is on, Andy has put a few exercises on “Youtube” for anyone who has access to the internet. Just Google “Youtube” then type in”Andy’s Extending Exercises”.

 

Our  regular activities are unable to resume with the current social distancing rules and other restrictions, but once things start opening up again, we hope to introduce some new groups for you to join.

Dates for Your Diary

We were planning to have a big celebration of our 50th anniversary later this year, so we shall go ahead with this when the restrictions are lifted.

Members: Please note that the Annual General Meeting due to be held on the 20th August, then postponed until November, will now be conducted by post. You will shortly receive a copy of the last year’s meeting, and an accompanying letter to explain things.

Room Hire

If you would like to hire one of our rooms, please email us with your plans or ring us between 10.30am and 12 noon, as social distancing rules mean that space will be limited, and also various procedures will need to be followed, eg sanitising, recording contact details, etc.
