Every Monday morning: Community Café, open  9.00 am – 12.00 noon

The Monday morning Café sessions are about giving people a chance to get out of the house and have a chat, cuppa and homemade cakes & bakes. Or you may just want to have some time to yourself and read the papers or a magazine (these are provided).  Everyone’s very welcome, including children. Emergency services in uniform receive a free cuppa. Please spread the word and join us if you can! Email Joanne if you have any questions or if you’d like more information.


Couch to 5K –   This is an NHS-backed initiative to get us doing some gentle exercise each week – sessions are 3 times per week, usually on Sunday mornings at 10.30, then Wednesdays and Fridays at 6pm. The first cohort has just done it!! Starting in January, and able to run 5k by March. They are staying with the programme and running several times a week. Most of the team never thought they would do it, but it’s really motiving developing together. Why not join the new cohort of beginners starting soon? Do drop us a line on scarthhall@gmail.com if you are remotely interested.

Come in comfortable clothes with comfortable footwear for an introductory session of walking and jogging up the coach road past the cemetery. So all on tarmac, no hills, and good company. If you download the app to your phone you will be told that you need to be able to talk while you are exercising – so it is not too strenuous, just enough to raise the heart rate.

Friday 26 April: Curry Night !!!!

In partnership with Zac of Spice Island, a £15 introductory offer with a variety of starters and main courses including mildly spiced and vegetarian dishes. The bar will serve the usual selection of appropriate beverages to complement the food. Admission by ticket only so that food can be arranged.
