At Rhythm Time, our classes for babies and toddlers are full of fun activities and, using the power of music, have been created and shaped to enhance their development.
Babies - Our multi-sensory, musical activities help with their vision, listening, speech and physical development, whilst giving parents the chance to get back out there, making new friends.
Toddlers - As they become increasingly engaged with the world, we help their concentration, hand-eye co-ordination, confidence and language, all with music at the heart.
For more information, go to www.rhythmtime.net
We walk every Thursday morning starting at 10.30am alternating approximately between shorter (4-6 miles) and longer (6-9 miles).
Meeting venues are arranged in advance and posted on our website. All walks are led by walking members, volunteering to lead on an occasional basis with help and support from others if required.
If you would like to try this fun and beneﬁcial form of exercise then some suitable hiking footwear, outerwear, a packed lunch and your enthusiasm are all that are required. Although we like to think of these outings as healthy we also consider it to be a social event and an optional visit to a local hostelry is usually arranged to restore our drained energy.
For more information visit www.hcya.org.uk/walkie-talkies.
We walk on the second Sunday of the month and cover a distance of around 8 miles.
We take a packed lunch and also have a short coﬀee break in the morning. Walks are led by volunteers from the group.
Walks are led by volunteers from the group and cover a distance of around 6 miles, followed by pub meal.
Move... Breathe... Stretch... Relax
Our yoga classes combine warm ups, mindful movement, yoga postures, breathing exercises and a guided relaxation session.Lizzy’s intention is to guide you towards increased strength, ﬂexibility and balance in your body and to nurture stillness and contentment in your mind.
We start where YOU are (rather than where you think you ought to be), it’s non-competitive, invigorating and we like to laugh too. Postures can be adapted and modiﬁcations oﬀered to enable you to enjoy yoga at your pace and to ﬁnd that all important balance between eﬀort and ease.
Lizzy has years of experience teaching yoga to people of all abilities, age groups and levels of mobility. Contact her to ﬁnd out more about these classes.
This class is intended especially for the “young at heart” although it is open to anyone and no experience of yoga is necessary. As long as you can get down to the ﬂoor and up again you are ﬁt enough!
The aim is to undo all the stiﬀness and the aches and stresses that have accumulated in our bodies over the years and also improve strength and suppleness.
We usually start on the ﬂoor with lots of gentle and relaxing warm up movements to get the joints mobilised and some simple techniques to improve breath awareness. This is followed by stronger strengthening movement and stretches that you can do at your own level and pace, and it's always ﬁne to miss something out! I like students to take what they need from classes.. resting where needed or adapting. The purpose of these classes is to gently strengthen and mobilise our bodies so we can carry on enjoying the lives we lead.
We end with a period of relaxation. Classes are small to allow for individual attention and cost £7 a session. I am a Yoga Alliance UK teacher with over 8 years of experience and I specialise in teaching functional yoga. I'm also qualiﬁed to teach Somatic Yoga (no stretching, but an amazing way to release tight muscles and erase life long pain). I regularly blend the technique into the classes. You are welcome to come to just one class to see if you like it. Usually I can provide mats and but currently it's advised that students will need to bring their own. Please wear loose clothing and bring something warm to wear/or to cover yourself for the relaxation.

The Hallam Art group is one of the largest groups within the HCYA with a membership of up to 70 who give support to each other and to the group as a whole, both in the day to day running and with exhibitions. There is no selection process for new members. An interest is art is all that is needed.
We meet to paint weekly on Thursday evenings, 7.30 to 9.30pm in the main room of the Community Hall. Lessons are not provided, and the atmosphere is informal, but help is given if requested, and members enjoy the mutual creativity of the group. Members' work is also exhibited in various local venues.
Once a month we hold optional DVD presentation evenings in the side room, when learning from a professional and the following discussion is much enjoyed. We have an excellent library of DVD's and books to borrow.
The Autumn Exhibition on the 4th and 5th of November will be held in the Hallam Community Hall and on the May Day weekend 2023 in the Botanical gardens 10.00am to 5.00pm each day.

Our wine tasting sessions are held in the Community Hall on alternate Thursdays beginning at 8:00pm
Tastings are either presented by Guild members or by an outside speaker from one of several wine merchants who are invited so we can sample and enjoy wines recommended by them from vineyards around the world.
Each year we have a few themed evenings, sometimes involving a meal prepared by members, accompanied with appropriate wines, and we also hold a Summer BBQ.
Some extra events take place away from the hall during the year, for example a meal at a local restaurant or a trip to a local winery. An early autumn holiday has oen been arranged and at Christmas we hold a 'black tie' dinner dance at a local venue.
We are a very sociable group and although we have a waiting list, if you are interested in joining us, please contact our Chairman, Ian Saunders, to discuss.
For further details please contact Ian Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org

Independent of the Thursday Wine and Beer Guild, Westside Wine Club is well-established and meets in the Community Hall at 7.45 pm on the third Friday of the month.
Our programme incorporates social events in the summer and winter. We are an informal sociable group with the aim of cultivating a good fellowship amongst our members and enjoy tasting both "affordable " wines as well as having the opportunity of sampling a selection of more expensive ones. Due to space restrictions our membership level is set at around 50 but we do have a waiting list at the present time (April 2019). Those on the waiting list are invited as guests whenever possible.
Our objectives are to participate in wine tastings and samplings in order to learn more about the different types of vines grown around the world and the variety of tastes that expert blending creates. We hold a varied programme of events with presentations from professional wine experts as well as presentations from within our membership.
For further details please contact Christine Bowman (Chairman) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
