Events at Chesham House

Here we are, two months until Christmas and with a mas of events to let you know about.

But first, we had an amazing Tai Chi session and from this we are now able to run two clubs, Mondays and Tuesdays. These clubs are a total sell out for now but if we have enough interest to run a third session we will.

Tai Chi in the evenings is always possible and we are busy trying to find an evening instructor to lead a brand new group. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for this group then pleased email me Margaret.peacock@royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk or phone the centre 01903 854640 to get your name on the list.

Our next First Time for Everything event is coming up. We are going to have a try at Glass Painting. I will post up some pictures of this event as it happens. Although this session is full now I am happy to start a waiting list and hold another event.

Finally for this post, we have Sussex Music Service coming in on 15th November to share an African drumming workshop with us. Again, if you are very quick we have room for a few more.

With Christmas approaching we are holding a Christmas Craft time on 17th December where everyone can make a Kissing Bow and learn the history of kissing bows.

Hi all,

This morning at Chesham House we discovered Fred and Flo. Here they are, very kindly knitted by our lovely Florrie. I thought you would like to see what they were up to! I will be watching them very carefully in the future and will share any of their funny or cute antics with you as we go forward.



80th Birthday Celebrations & Fundraising for Chesham House

I will add some some photos at a later stage, but I just wanted to say a HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU
(in no particular order) to some of our valiant volunteers:

& Jean

For cooking for, organising and running a fantastic Cream Tea Party at Chesham House this afternoon.

This event was organised completely by volunteers to celebrate the Royal Voluntary Service 80th birthday this year.

A big thank you to Sainsbury’s for so very kindly supporting us by donating all the goodies we needed for the event.

We would also like to thank the NCS Sun Capri team for helping out by decorating the centre and holding their inter-generational game swap for our visitors.

Last, but by no means least….thank you to all that attended.

A terrific afternoon was had by all, it was a real treat for everyone and so good to have the younger and older generations mixing so well and enjoying themselves. Very uplifting.

Along with the sponsored walk that the NCS Sun Capri team did on Wednesday, we raised a massive £414.72 to go towards purchasing fire retardant panels for our oven area at Chesham House.

What a way to end the week. 


Sun Capri – an NCS Group are supporting Chesham House

This is a quote from the group:

Sun Capri, as an NCS Group based between Goring and Brighton in the South of England, have decided, for our Social Action Project, to achieve our NCS award, is to raise money so we can buy an item which we hope will leave a Lasting Legacy in the Lancing Community. To raise money, we will be doing a sponsored walk, where we will take a journey at 2pm all the way from Brighton Palace Pier, along the seafront all the way to Worthing Pier, which will show our great determination and commitment towards the Royal Voluntary Service – and most importantly, leaving that lasting legacy within the Chesham House Centre, Lancing.

If you would like to sponsor this group of youngsters please go to:
