The Meeting House is currently used by groups for meditation, talks and discussion, complementary therapies, and music.
One group is ‘Rhythm Rascals’. These music sessions are run by a qualified music therapist with over ten years experience of working with children through interactive music. The groups meet on Thursday mornings when children can explore the world of music-making and movement in a supportive and safe environment. Experience of making music at a young age can help to develop physical, communication and social skills in a fun way. The pre-school session for children aged 2-4 runs from 9.30 to 10.30 am, followed by the baby session for 0-2 year olds from 10.45-11.30 am. For further details please contact Catherine Brown on 01584 875659, or just turn up!
