We run activities each week throughout the year in a fun and relaxing way with time for plenty of chat helped down, of course, by a nice cuppa and biscuits. We’re always interested to hear from new prospective members so if you would like to find out more about our group and activities, please contact us initially either by email or telephone.
The Skittles/Boccia group meets on Monday mornings at the United Church in Crowborough. The game of Boccia comes from a modified bowls game and is played by paralympians. Players can stand or remain seated to play and thoroughly enjoy these sessions led by Vic and our other volunteers.
Once a fortnight, we have a singing session on a Thursday at St. Richard’s Church Hall in Crowborough. Everybody has a copy of the songbook for the day and members can request their particular favourites for the group to sing together. These are highly popular.
Alternating with the singing sessions on Thursday mornings, we hold EXTEND exercises which are constructed to support people who have limited mobility or who are returning to fitness following a period of inactivity. For these exercises, people remain mostly seated but with some standing as appropriate. The classes are led by Dianne who is an EXTEND trained instructor. The exercises are very beneficial and good fun – especially when followed by a cup of tea or coffee!
