Our first Chair Yoga session last Friday was a great success, and the class was almost full.  If you are hoping to come along to future sessions, please note that the maximum capacity for this class is 10 people, so priority will go to those who have pre-booked. Any remaining spaces will work on a first come first served basis. To avoid disappointment please contact Charlotte to book your space – email: charlotte@living-yoga.co.uk or text 07367 757124

Village Hall News update & September 2021 Events

As most of you know, we were finally able to reopen the hall towards the end of July after prolonged closure due to Covid.  Our regular weekly activities – art club and the library café – have resumed and it’s been a joy to see old friends meeting up for the first time in over a year. The monthly Villagers group normally takes place on a Thursday afternoon, but this month hosted an entertaining evening talk open to all, about Vivien Drake, a former Dallington resident with theatrical connections. Another well attended talk took place in August on the wartime history of Dallington Forest and other woodlands, and as you can see we have a full programme lined up for September.

Please note that we are retaining some precautions to keep the hall ‘covid safe’,  including provision of hand sanitiser, extra ventilation and limiting numbers for each event.

In order to encourage more people to come forward with new ideas, the Management Committee have agreed to use some grant money to enable us to waive hall hire fees until the end of the year for groups or one-off events that are of potential interest and benefit to the community as a whole. Please get in touch with the booking secretary Karen Gillingham  on 01435 831563 if you are interested in booking the hall.
