Red Lion book groups
Is your child a book lover? If so then this club may be the answer to your prayers. There are two groups that meet on a Saturday afternoon near the end of the month at the Red Lion book shop. One aimed at those aged 8-12 and a second one for teenagers and young adults. The aim of the groups is to merely show how fun reading can be and they are a fantastic tool to form reading into a really enjoyable habit throughout childhood. The teenage group meets at 2pm with the 8-12 year olds at 3pm. Check here
for exact meeting dates. There is no charge for this activity, all they ask is that you purchase the book being discussed.
Fencing with the Little Musketeers
When we were younger, we all jumped around our living rooms pretending to be Musketeers/ But now your child can learn the real thing! Fencing classes are gaining in popularity. With huge thanks to the Olympic games, fencing is now a sport that is more widely recognised in even the smallest of towns. Little Musketeers provides a wonderfully exciting environment that teaches the Olympic values of friendship, respect and excellence through the skill of fencing. Fencing itself provides a huge amount of excitement whilst developing both physical and intellectual skills that can then be used in other areas of life. Starting in 2009 Little Musketeers holds classes for children aged three and upwards. Click
