Ageing Creatively with Marcus Lilley

The sun has got its hat on!

 The sun is out and summer is nearly here. We are very busy with the launch of several projects out an about across West Berkshire. Our Creative Arts Clubs at Thatcham Library and Pangbourne Library had their first sessions this week, doing silk painting and art journaling respectively. The fantastic Simon Jardine began the first sessions of his six-week course Learn how to draw and paint EVERYTHING at Hungerford and Theale Libraries.  The ever-popular Our Song has started at Willows Edge Care Home and Winchcombe Place Care Home and the residents and staff were singing in full swing!   

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
