We will be offering three weeks of short courses this Summer: weeks commencing 19th July, 26th July and 2nd August. They will feature a range of short taster activities (gentle fitness, yoga, cardiac fitness etc.) If you would like further information on these courses please do get in contact.  Information on the exact courses to be offered will be available on our website in the next few weeks. 

Willow sculptures for kids and families:  

Gina Martin, an amazing willow artist, will be visiting on Saturday 14th August. Families are welcome to drop by and help create some wonderful willow sculptures (we’re thinking deer as we are so close to Richmond Park) as the day progresses. More information on location and timings will be available closer to the day.
