Two New Classes in January

January sees two new classes starting at Chilworth Hall, nicely timed for those New Year ‘fitness’ resolutions.

Starting on Tuesday, 7th, Sarah Rowley is bringing Zumba back to the Hall. It’s not too late to sign up. For more details just follow the link.

Later in the month, something new… Men’s Yoga with Enrico.  Yes we already have some excellent Yoga classes and, yes, some of them cater for men, but this one is exclusive so if that appeals to you then now’s your chance. Follow the link for more details.

Amazon Smile?

“Chilworth Hall will unfortunately not be receiving a donation this quarter from AmazonSmile because your donation balance was less than the £5 minimum disbursement amount. Don’t worry – we will hold any accruals and add them to a disbursement in a future quarter.”

Help the Hall – follow this link to have Amazon make a contribution every time you buy something.

And the winners are…

Activities at the Hall

Chilworth Hall has always been managed by a committee of volunteers. Since the current team set out to turn around its fortunes the overall utilisation of the Hall has increased by 127%. Some of this is down to the updating of the facilities on offer. There’s also been overspill from Chilworth Manor, where The Club seems to have been going in the opposite direction in recent years. These days Chilworth Hall offers a lot more opportunities for socialising and recreation. Most of the Yoga or Pilates groups have provided information for this webpage. Several others may not have been aware of the offer of free publicity. Imminent changes to the page will ensure that it includes the contact details of all the many other clubs and societies that use the Hall, including a Rock Choir, Tango or Ballroom or Folk dancing groups, an Art Group, an Alpine Gardening Society, a Canal Society, the Inner Wheel and Dog/Puppy Training.  There’s now also a thriving branch of the Women’s Institute as well as the rural cinema with monthly Moviola showings.
