Pellon High Five Spring Newsletter and Timetable of Activities

Pellon High Five has published the Spring 2019 newsletter, which can be downloaded  here.

Soon you will be getting messages from Karen to select individuals to receive a star award. Are there folk who deserve recognising for their service. There are lots of  categories, good neighbour, outstanding individual, work with young or old people.

Most classes close for 2 weeks over Easter. The singers are carrying on because they are going to delight congregations, in services during the period. Check with your
tutor.

Your lymphatic system is very important to your health. It clears poisons & debris from your system…and you don’t want those building up. BUT it doesn’t have a pump like your blood. It is dependent on bodily movement. So, keep moving during the vacation & come back to your class glowing with health….or as near as you can make it.

I bet we have all known someone vulnerable who has got lost. We have been given a copy of the “Herbert Protocol”. It’s a form to fill in if you are caring for someone who may wander off. It contains questions which might be asked by the police so that missing person can be found quickly, safe & well. Some questions can be filled in immediately & a photo added. Others would need to be completed if someone had gone missing. They are probably available to download or you can ask if you would like one.

Below is shown the timetable of activities as at October 2018.

Run by Pellon High Five 50+ Community Group, every shape and size is right for these classes, it doesn’t matter how much, or how little, you can do. High Five caters for different levels of fitness and laugh with each other sometimes at our inability to master some moves! Most people will admit to being nervous about going to a “Keep Fit” class, so if you’re worried about coming to your first class on your own, call to arrange for someone to meet you as you arrive. All our new members say what a friendly bunch of folk they are and how welcome they were made. So what are you waiting for? Your first class is free & subsequent classes £3.

Exercise does so many brilliant things for your body & brain. If doctors could put it in pill form & bottle it we would all be rushing to get a prescription. How about a new year’s resolution to spend less time on the settee & more moving.

High Five Pilates
Pilates can be gentle for those who have injuries but strenuous for those who need a challenge. Our clinical Pilates classes cost £3 for an hour session. Again your first class is free. You will strengthen the muscles that support your body. These muscles could also help to reduce wear & tear on joints & keep them functioning. Good posture is important in helping to reduce back pain.

The classes do not run every week so please email before going.

Pellon High Five Winter Newsletter and Timetable of Activities

Pellon High Five has published the Winter 2019 newsletter, which can be downloaded  here.

Thanks to Jenny Garner for preparing the Christmas Quiz. This year’s Christmas party was voted a resounding success and the food was delicious.

2019 Membership renewal is due now. Happily once again, no membership fee but please make sure you complete the form (available from your tutor) with your up-to-date details. Pass them to the committee and they will be passed onto Angela, the Membership Secretary. Please put on which class/es you attend otherwise there is difficulty uniting you with your membership cards.

In March High Five will be 8 years old! The AGM has been arranged for Friday 29 March, 2:00pm at Highgate. It’s later this year so that the Treasurer can present a more accurate full year’s accounts for the financial year-end in February. A plea here once again for new Committee members. High Five can only keep going if  there is an active Committee. If you can’t join, maybe you know someone else who would?

Park & Warley Our Communities Award 2015: Contribution to Sport and Play – WINNER ANNOUNCED!

Contribution to Sport and Play

WINNER: James Sharman – St Columba’s JFC

At the end of this football season St Columba’s say goodbye to Manager, James Sharman who has been involved in the Club now for over 10 years where he has managed the same team for all that time and has also held the Chairman role for the past 6 years.

The club will surely miss his leadership, management, advice and humour because James has contributed an outstanding amount of time to St Columba’s where his knowledge, commitment, experience and professionalism has made the club what it is today.

During his time at the club, James has provided much sought after advice to all of the Clubs managers and Committee members – he should be proud that he has committed 10 years of his life to the Club and everybody involved.

James has now decided to step down as manager and hand over to others although no doubt he can still be relied on for guidance and advice since he has taken on the role of Chairman for St Columba’s AFC continuing to contribute to Sport & Play in some form.
