Community healthy living groups

Art and craft group

The art and craft group is held on the first and third Thursday of every month between 2pm and 4pm at the Church Centre, Nether Stowey. Everyone welcome.

There are some painting supplies available to use and a small donation is required to pay for the room hire and keep the supplies topped up (£3), but you are welcome to bring along any projects you are currently working on, be they painting or another craft project. While this is not a lesson, there are some very talented artists participating who can pass on some useful tips should you require them. For more information contact Robert on 01278 733794,  Mac on 01278 732382  or Maggie on 01278 685889

 

Walking for health

Walking group members

Nether Stowey Health Walking Group meets every Tuesday at 10.30am for those walks which start at the Medical Centre and some from further afield throughout the Quantock AONB (those walks start a little earlier, meeting at the Medical Centre at 10.15am and sharing a lift to the location).

Lifts can be organised and these can be arranged through Elizabeth Woolcock who runs the walks or the walk leaders as advertised for each walk.

 

Gentle Walks

There are also Gentle walks around Nether Stowey for complete beginners and those wanting  to get a little bit more mobile with a walk leader, all walks are adjusted to suit the needs of the group, and finish at the Library for a drink,

 

These walks start form the Nether Stowey Church centre every other Wednesday at 10 am. Contact Georgina on  07599654679 or Steve on 07747127334 to find out when the next walk is or if you have any questions. 

For more information on walking visit  https://www.sasp.co.uk/health-walks  . The programme changes every month.
