Activities - Gardening

Gardening

The gardening section continues to own its collection of equipment and order a substantial quantity of seeds, etc. at discount. The terms for joining have not increased with inflation… still £10 to buy into the equipment, and £2 per year thereafter. We have a shredder, scarifier, hedge trimmers and lawn vacuum. Some members have borrowed an item and been so impressed that they decided to buy their own version, others have avoided a costly mistake by trying the shredder and deciding it was not for them.

I am sometimes approached regarding other gardening matters, e.g. finding someone to water while a gardener goes away.Anyone interested in a reciprocal arrangement of this kind, or a broader exchange, please get in touch. The extended version would operate along the lines of the baby-sitting circles of old, where you can earn and spend agreed numbers of points for exchange of services such as gardening tasks, ironing, lifts, etc. among the membership.

Us enjoying the view over Derwent Water Activities - Walkie Talkies

The Walkie Talkies

www.hcya.org.uk/walkie-talkies

We walk every Thursday morning alternating between shorter, which are between 3 and 5 miles, and longer walks, which are in the region of 6 to 8 miles. These can however be longer particularly in the summer months when we have the opportunity of travelling further afield. These longer walks offer more of a challenge but are all taken at a moderate pace. All walks are led by walking members, volunteering to lead on an occasional basis throughout the year, but help and support is given to those new at sourcing walks.

If you would like to try this fun and beneficial form of exercise then some suitable hiking footwear, outerwear, a packed lunch and your enthusiasm are all that are needed to take part. All walks start at 10:30am with all venues arranged in advance. An optional visit to a local hostelry afterwards helps to restore our drained energy reserves.

Hallam Art Group

www.hallamartgroup.wordpress.com

Hallam Art Group is one of the larger groups within HCYA with a membership who give support to each other and to the Group as a whole, both in the day to day running and with our exhibitions. We meet to paint weekly on Thursday evenings, 7.30pm to 9.30pm in the main room of the Hallam Community Hall. We do not provide lessons at our meetings – just the space and informal atmosphere to grow in our artistic enjoyment.

During the year we have a programme of interesting and informative activities – workshops, demonstrations, life drawing, occasional portrait and still life sessions and sketching outings. We hold an excellent library of art books and DVDs, and on one evening each month we show a DVD in a separate room allowing for appreciation and discussion afterwards. Hallam Art Group is a friendly group, with help and advice readily available from our more experienced members.

We held our Spring 2017 exhibition over the May Bank Holiday in the Botanical Gardens new exhibition premises and this was a huge success so will be repeated in 2018. Our November 2017 exhibition will be held in the HCYA Hall on Saturday 25th November from 2.00 - 4pm and Sunday 26th November from 11.00am -5.00pm. We still display members paintings throughout the year in the Blackbrook Road and Broomhill doctors surgeries.

More information about the group can be found at our website website.

Our maximum membership is 70 and at the moment we have a few vacancies for anyone who would like to join.

Activities - Wine Guild Activities - Wine Guild

The Wine Guild

Our fortnightly wine tasting sessions are usually held in the Community Hall on alternate Thursdays at 8:00pm. Tastings are often presented by Guild members and are on various topics including wines from a particular region or a specific grape variety. These are sampled with cheese and biscuits, some nibbles, or food appropriate to the wines.

We also arrange for wine merchants to visit us so we can share their knowledge of wine. This year we have had talks from Waitrose, The Dram Shop and Starmore Boss. There are occasional themed evenings with a meal, and summer and autumn barbecues.

Outings are organised two or three times a year including a holiday abroad. We are a very sociable group and if you are interested in joining please e-mail our Chairman, Brian, and your name can be placed on our waiting list. We are limited to how many members we can seat in the room and our membership is currently full.

Activities - Yoga

Young at Heart Yoga

This class is intended especially for the "young at heart" although it is open to anyone and no experience of yoga is necessary. As long as you can get down to the floor and up again you are fit enough! The aim is to undo all the stiffness and the stresses that have accumulated in our bodies over the years to improve strength and suppleness.

We start with lots of gentle warm up stretches and exercises to improve the breathing. This is followed by stronger stretches that you can do at your own level, and its always fine to miss something out! We end with a period of relaxation.

Classes are small to allow for individual attention and cost £7 a session.

I am a British Wheel teacher with 15 years experience especially of teaching older students or those with health problems. You are welcome to come to just one class to try it when I can provide a mat, otherwise students will need to bring their own. Please wear loose clothing and bring something warm to wear/or to cover yourself for the relaxation.

Activities - Wine Club

Westside Wine Club

Westside Wine Club has now been running as a section for 3 years and acts totally independently from the Thursday Wine Guild. Our meetings are held in the evening and we meet on a monthly basis on the third Friday of each month.

Our objectives are to participate in wine tastings and samplings in order to learn more about the different types of vines grown around the world and the variety of tastes that expert blending creates. We hold a varied programme of events with presentations from both professional wine experts combined with presentations from within our own Members.

We are a very informal sociable group with the aim of cultivating a good fellowship amongst our Members and enjoy tasting both ‘affordable’ wines as well as having the opportunity of sampling a selection of the more expensive ones.

On a social basis we hold both a Summer and Seasonal Festive event with other outings organised during the year.

Should you wish to be placed on our short waiting list please contact our Secretary or Chairman.
