Whether you’re resolving to be more creative or keep more active in 2020 it’s not always easy to know where to get started. At ARC you can get involved in activities to pick up new crafting skills, or keep your body feeling great. We’ve picked some of our favourites to help get your 2020 resolutions underway!


Tai Chi

If you’re aiming to be more active in the New Year give our Tai Chi classes a go. Tai Chi is a gentle exercise that improves flexibility, balance and physical health. Plus it promotes relaxation to improve mental health.

Our Tai Chi classes run every Thursday from 7.30pm.  If you’re over 50 you may prefer our Silver Tai Chi class, which is specially tailored to benefit over 50’s. Silver Tai Chi runs every Monday with a beginners class at 12.30pm and an intermediate class at 1.30pm.


Needle Felt

Try your hand at a new craft and come along to one of our Needle Felt workshops. Needle felting is a great way to create fabric sculptures to give as gifts or to keep for yourself. The cost of these sessions includes any materials you need so all you need to bring is yourself! With guidance from our tutor Carole you’ll be creating your own felt sculptures in no time.

Our Needle Felt workshops run every fortnight throughout the year. You can book your spot at any of the January or February workshops now!
