Tai Chi

We’re very excited that we've started our programme of Tai Chi sessions, aimed at complete beginners, that started on 4 January and will continue through to June. They are held in the Evergreen Hall, Angel Street.  Classes start at midday.  You’ll learn a set of simple Tai Chi moves and the group will build their confidence from week to week. These sessions will be very low  impact but you will need to be able to stand for a period of time.  

If you’d like to put your name down on the waiting list for future Tai Chi please get in touch. 

SHOUT enjoy a day of games and challenges and we WON!!

On 8 December, SHOUT as a partner of Bridgend CBC, participated in the Olympage Games 2016.  There were thirteen other teams represented from a variety of older age and learning disability groups in Bridgend and even though we say it ourselves we did well.  Photos will be published as soon as they are available.  Wales Online’ did a nice press release - see the link below.  We would like to thank Jane Thomas and Sarah Harris and their team for all the hard work it took to organise such a great event.  We look forward to 2017's event!
