YOGA CLASS

With Angela Folwell. Wednesdays, 6.30 - 7.30pm, Pytchley Village Hall. £7 per session

No experience necessary, beginners welcome or even those who have done yoga, this evening class is suitable for all levels. I teach teenagers to older people. (I have ladies in their 70s that enjoy yoga with me on the mat who enjoy a really good stretch). I also teach various age groups at Bannatynes Health club in Wellingborough and Anytime Fitness in Rushden.

I can lend you a yoga mat if you do not have one of your own, until you purchase one and decide to commit to this weekly class - so that you can reap the benefits to regular yoga practice. Yoga can help you feel more relaxed, less stressed and improve your physical body as well as making a difference spiritually, mentally and emotionally. I just require you to complete a Health Questionnaire to register with me if you would like to attend.

I am also interested in setting up more chair yoga classes in the area if there is the demand because there have been so many positive outcomes with the one I run in Broughton Weds 10-11am. This one is about full up most weeks.

PYTCHLEY MILLENNIUM WINE GROUP

The Pytchley Millennium Wine Group (PMWG) has been in existence for 20 years now. The aim of the group is to promote the understanding and appreciation of wines of all types and from all countries. This is achieved by holding regular meetings, presentations from outside experts, and where possible, organised visits to vineyards at home and abroad.

We hold two regular events which are always well attended, the first being the Champagne Reception held on a Sunday lunch time in January, and the second being the Annual Dinner held in December.

The membership currently is about 45 and if you are interested in learning about wine and of course tasting wine, we are always willing to accept new members. The annual membership is only £12 per person.

This is a very friendly and convivial group and if you are interested in joining, please talk to one of the committee members (Louise Drage, Brenda Hargreaves, Andy Wykes), or come to one of our evening meetings as a guest.
