Mindfulness for Adults

Monday 24th September – Monday 15th October, 9:30am

Join trained psychotherapist, Jane, for 10 minutes of #selfcare, as she leads you through a gentle mindfulness-centred session, with the aim to help you reconnect with yourself.
The sessions are free, and will run each Monday, for four weeks. You can attend as many or few as suits you.

To celebrate Bookshop Day 2018, we’re shaking things up a bit in Creative Writing Club. You can come along with poetry that you have written, or a favourite poem (Mrs Chicken will be reciting A.A.Milne’s ‘James James Morrison Morrison’), as well as writing your own.

And then you’ll be invited to a poetry karaoke. Don’t worry, if you’re feeling shy, you don’t have to perform, you can sit back and listen to others.

Child of Air, Water, Earth or Fire: now that she is thirteen Storm must undertake The Choosing and be claimed by one of the Elementals, which will determine her whole life’s work. But for Storm, daughter of a father murdered by Water and a warrior mother claimed by Earth, there will be no easy destiny. Soon Storm faces a decision that will change her life – and that of everyone who lives on her island – forever.
