What’s on in November & December at Lurgashall Village Hall

Nov-Dec 2019After a glorious Summer, Autumn is here with her all too short-lived display of stunning colour now gently dropping to the ground. The Americans call it ‘Fall’ – such a perfectly descriptive word!
So onward we move into November and December, and wait to see what the Winter has in store for us…..
Well, whatever the weather, the Village Hall has plenty in store to entertain us.
Details of all events to follow soon.
Don’t forget PILATES. EVERY MONDAY EVENING between now and Christmas from 7.15pm – 8.15p

Harvest Supper at Lurgashall Village Hall – Sunday 6 October

Harvest veg J. Lawson

The annual Harvest Supper in Lurgashall Village Hall is a great tradition in the Parish and a lovely celebration of the end of summer.

The Supper takes place at 7.30pm, immediately after the Harvest Service in the Church.

If you’d like to join the Supper, you can buy your tickets (£7.50) at the village shop.
As this is always a very popular event, best to book early for a wonderful feast in great company!

The new Village Hall extension is completed!

The extension houses a much-needed store room for furniture and an archive and small meeting room.

LEADER PLAQUEThe buiding of the extension was made possible by many generous local donations as well as significant funding from the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, administered by the Sussex Downs and Coastal Plain L.E.A.D.E.R. Action Group.

We are immensely grateful to all our funders, to Hang Ups our builders, and to all our hirers who have borne with us through the build.

Pilates for All – July Classes at Lurgashall Village Hall

Pilates position

 

Local Pilates teacher Eliza Wheeler is running a flourishing Pilates class at Lurgashall Village Hall every Monday at 7.15pm.

July dates are: Mon. 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd & 29th July. 

Eliza says: “As a Physiotherapist I think Pilates is a wonderful form of exercise, and everyone can benefit from it in some way.  The focus is on strengthening up the ‘core’ – improving strength centrally makes the bits on the outside function better!  We also work on flexibility, balance and posture.  The benefits of regular Pilates include not only toning legs, bums and tums, but also helping to reduce and prevent back pain. 

“Ultimately, it should be fun, and I hope at the end of the class you walk out feeling refreshed and happy.”

If you would like to join the classes or have any questions, please contact Eliza on 07929 365088 or email eliza.wheeler@hotmail.co.uk .
