Tai chi to continue in 2018

We have come to the end of the 45 free tai chi sessions funded by a grant. The sessions held in Windmill Gardens started last January and have attracted 131 local people to sample the gentle breathing and stretching exercise.

Of these, 20 attended 5-8 sessions and a further 27 came to 21 or more sessions. Over the year an average of 19 people attended our weekly one-hour sessions, and amazingly we only had to cancel three classes due to bad weather.

Tai chi has proved so successful that we have agreed to continue our Saturday morning sessions on into 2018. We will be asking participants to donate £3 (waged) or £1 (unwaged) each session so that we can continue to pay our tutors Nigel and Anna.

The last free tai chi session in Windmill Gardens starts at 11am on 2 December, so why not come along and sample this stress-relieving outdoor exercise? As it is currently quite cold please wrap up warm â€“ bring a hat and gloves and wear suitable footwear.

We want to thank our funders, the Lambeth Community Fund and the London Community Foundation, for supporting our programme during 2017.
