We’re very excited that we've started our programme of eight Tai Chi sessions, aimed at complete beginners, that started on 4 January and will continue through to the end of February. They are held in the Evergreen Hall, Angel Street.  Classes start at midday, but on 11 January, because we have our our festive meal, it will begin at 10.00.  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.  

The LIFT sessions which start again in March are carried out sitting down the whole time and may be a better option for some. If you’d like to put your name down on the waiting list for future Tai Chi please get in touch. 

 

Our next meeting is in the Evergreen Hall on Wednesday 18 January 2017, why not come along for tea and biscuits.  We will be discussing two important consultation surveys released by the Health Board and the Council.  The Health Board are considering changes to urgent medical services in Swansea and Neath Port Talbot and the Council are reviewing its current policy on charging for non-residential care services.  Future speakers will include the Health Board, Carers Wales, the Fire Service and the police. If you have any ideas for future speakers then contact us. Its all free so why not come along and give it a try. 

 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!

Look out for a new press release from the Council!!!  SHOUT won its category prize and the presentation of the trophy was made by Jane Thomas from BCBC
