Chilworth Hall AGM

Notice is hereby given that the next meeting of Chilworth Hall’s management committee will be the AGM at the Hall at 18:00 on Wednesday, 19th June. All residents of Chilworth are entitled to attend and to vote as the chairman and committee members stand for re-election. Anyone wishing to join the committee as a new member should give prior notice by e-mail to the Secretary, Joan Pryde.

The committee is actively seeking new members, particularly those with accounting or bookkeeping skills and experience, or those who wish to get involved in helping to organise events. Membership of the committee is entirely voluntary.

In recent years, the Hall has been significantly refurbished. There is still some work to do, but it is planned to be finished by late summer. After that the intention is to switch focus to making better use of the facilities available, raising money for local charities rather than for the Hall itself (which should now be self-sustaining).

Pilates with Sharon

Sharon Raichura has recently started running Pilates classes at Chilworth Hall during the day on every Friday including school holidays, and both are doing well.  The intermediate class at 11:15 already has a waiting list, but the 12:15 class for beginners/improvers does still have some spaces.

Classes are for women and men, and class sizes are limited to twelve.  The cost is £9 for the first class and then £52.50 for six weeks.  For more information contact Sharon by e-mail or phone/text her on 07944 613418.  There is also a website. Continue reading

Friday: The Keeper

On Friday, Chilworth Moviola is showing The Keeper, a biographical, romantic drama telling the story of Bert Trautmann, a German paratrooper who after being released from his PoW camp at the end of WWII became Manchester City’s goalkeeper.  For those who aren’t football fans, fear not – this is more a romantic biopic than a footie film.

Beginners Yoga

In February, Chi Yoga Southampton started its first course for beginners at Chilworth Hall. It was a great success, introducing twelve people to yoga. Following on from that, there will soon be a new six-week yoga course for both women and men, called Beginners & Beyond . It will start on Thursday 9th May (with no class on 30th May).  Each weekly session starts at 5:45pm and lasts for one hour. Continue reading

Simply use smile.amazon.co.uk rather than just amazon.co.uk.  To support our Hall in this way, please just click on this link. Continue reading
