Coniston Update! :)

Hello Everyone!


We hope everyone is truly in the holiday spirit and has some lovely festive plans.

At Coniston Community Centre, we have plenty going on to either get you in the festive spirit or distract you from the dreaded shopping.


We have a lot going on, such as; regular dance classes, workshops, informal coffee mornings, diabetic eye screenings, fitness classes, meditation sessions, art classes, events and so much more on offer. We have welcomed a few new groups to the Centre, including RUBRIC – Russian Language School and 2 new Slimming World groups too.


Southern Brooks’ Children’s Christmas Party is going to be a treat too! On Tuesday 18th December 2018, 15:30 – 17:00 in Brooks Café. Contact Southern Brooks for more information on this: 01454 868 570.


On Saturday 8th December 2018 the Finnish Language School are holding a Christmas Celebration 11:30 – 13:00 in the Link Centre and you are more than welcome to attend and support them and see a traditional Finnish Santa Claus.


The following Saturday – 15th December 2018 is a fantastic pantomime by Oooh Arrr Productions – Jack & the Bean Stalk, the event is sold out, so make sure you bring your tickets along to what promises to be a memorable event. I will be there, so say hello! ?


In the New Year we have some new Community groups starting, including Brooks Book Club, whereby you come along, for good company and coffee and talk about any book that you are reading at the moment. It’s a great way to meet people and a fantastic way to find out about other potential reads. Open to all reading abilities. This will be the 3rd Friday of the month, 13:00 – 14:00 starting on Friday 18th January 2019. Hopefully see you there!


We also have the “Not Not Going Out Group”. Do you have long term health issues? Are you feeling lonely or isolated? This is a social gathering for you. Everyone is welcome it is in Brooks Café on the first Thursday of the month, starting on Thursday 3rd January 2019, 13:00 – 14:00.
