Activities in the Village Hall

Posted: Mon, 14 Jan 2019 17:30 by Janet Taylor

There is something happening in the hall almost every day - why not try something new this year?

On Monday evenings we have Oakham Sings!, a ladies' singing group where the emphasis is on upbeat music and having fun.
Tuesday and Wednesday you'll find the Braunston Table Tennis Club knocking seven bells out of a ping pong ball, new members always welcome. Also on Wednesday the quilting group meets in the small hall, so whether you're an experienced quilter or just starting out there's a place for you with plenty of good chat thrown in as well.
The Gardening Club meet once a month on a Thursday evening, and again monthly on a Thursday, Leslie Gadd from Lovely Loaves runs a baking class - all ingredients supplied, just bring along a container to take home your goodies.
On Friday mornings there are two Pilates classes, just the thing to tone and strengthen ( maybe counteracting the effects of the Christmas season ! ), and on Friday evenings we have the fortnightly indoor bowls club, another group where the spirit of competition doesn't get in the way of a having a sociable evening out - or at least, not too often !!

If you're interested in joining in the fun and learning something new have a look at the Regular Activities page on the village hall website to find out contact details.
