  • On the 21st September the members of the garden club will be making Bird Feeders and Bee Hotels.
  • As we move into the winter, you’ll be preparing fat and seed balls to help fatten up the birds for the long winter months when food is scarce.
  • You will also be crafting bee hotels using reclaimed materials ready for their winter hibernation.

Our FREE Qi Gong Class restarts on Tuesday 12th September at 12:30. Qi Gong is a moving meditation using simple, graceful and flowing movements, very similar to tai chi and means ‘energy exercise’. It was developed in China over 4000 years ago and still practised in the modern day.
