Weekly Activities

Regular weekly, fortnightly & monthly activities to join in.

Circus Skills

Weekly on Tuesday 10.30am

The circus skills Group meets in St Patrick’s Parochial Hall each Tuesday from 10.30am-12md with an average of 14 members per week.

The session begins with gentle warm-up exercises progressing to a group activity which involves passing or throwing items such as balls, hats or rings across and around a circle. There may be 8 or more items on the go at any one time. It helps if you concentrate, but dropping things causes more laughter and picking them up helps with exercise. After coffee and biscuits with time for a chat and catch-up we progress to improving our individual skills, using a variety of small objects such as hats, balls, sticks, diablo or rings. Some even try stilt walking. Overall, it is a morning of fun, laughter and a great sense of achievement if you succeed at a task.

If you would like to try this, just come to St Patrick’s Parochial Hall any Tuesday morning at 10.30am or contact the Rector mark205@btinternet.com.
