Guest Blog | The week where we had the hottest day of the year so far!

 This week has been hot and humid! We had our second Thatcham Library Creative Arts Club session led Helen Mortimer where we did some more lovely silk painting. We were creating cards and bookmarks. 

 We held a Quiz and dance at Sulhamstead Village Hall on Friday morning for Together in Mission (TIM). It was great fun on the hottest day of year! We learned some simple dance steps under the expert guidance of Emma Mayo who leads our monthly Afternoon Dance sessions at Fair Close.

If you want to find out more about what we have on offer across West Berkshire or if you have an idea for session and would like to discuss it further, please email: Marcus Lilley, Ageing Creatively Rural Agent, marcusl@cornexchangenew.co.uk
