Ageing with Attitude

Some of the big group who enjoy the exercise at our Ageing with Attitude class on Tuesday mornings. See the smiles — they can exercise and still have fun.

Craft and Chatter (Get yourself hooked on a good yarn)

Craft and Chatter

On Thursday mornings from 10 am to 12 noon, our Craft and Chatter group keep busy working their way towards the next fete. Some knit, some sew and some crochet some magnificent items but we’d never embroider the truth! All skill levels are welcome and we’re happy to share our techniques and help you pick up a new one. Marjorie, Daphne and the group look forward to meeting you.

Computer Classes

Come along to one of our Computer classes and learn how you can use your computer with more confidence. Within small groups learn at your own pace how to:

  • save, organise and retrieve files
  • search the internet and send an email
  • download photos from your camera
  • scan a file or program for a virus
  • enjoy your computer and what it can do

Classes are held each Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning. The tutors are there to help each individual whether they are a complete beginner or one who just wants to learn some more.

Social Card Group

Each Wednesday from 10 am to 2 pm the group meets in the Fraser Room to play cards. This is a friendly, social occasion to relax and enjoy congenial company. One group will be playing Canasta but everyone is welcome to play any other card game – maybe Euchre or Poker – or whatever you enjoy.

Porcelain Painting

porcelain class

Join this friendly class and try a simple modern or traditional design on a porcelain plate or mug.  All the brushes, paints and mediums are supplied for the first four weeks and the club has a kiln in which we fire our pieces.  You’ll be surprised what you can produce in just a couple of weeks.

Oil painting with Peter

We have a landscape painting class on Wednesday mornings starting at 10 am. It does not matter that you have never painted before or not painted for a while, you will go home with a completed picture. We paint with oil paint on canvas panels. Paints and brushes provided for a moderate cost.

Tune in with the Turner Tones

Add a musical lift  to the middle of your week with the Turner Tones. Each Wednesday at !.30, Brian Venables leads an hour of singing that will put a smile on your dial as you sing your way through musical hits. Everyone welcome, no experience required.
