FREE Fun Quiz followed by a Fish & Chip Lunch

FREE Fun Quiz followed by a Fish & Chip Lunch
Friday 16th March 11am – 1.00pm
Older people in Lancing and the surrounding areas are invited to join us for a FUN QUIZ and good old FISH & CHIPS Friday 16th March.
Our volunteer Cindy will be leading the quiz session at the Royal Voluntary Service Chesham House Centre from 11.00 am.
The first part of the quiz will be laid out on the tables for you to ponder over from 11.00 am whilst we serve tea, coffee and biscuits, then the questions start at 11.30 am.
We follow the quiz with a Fish & Chip lunch from the chippie at 12.30 pm.
The event is part of First Time for Everything, a programme designed by Royal Voluntary Service and Prudential UK to give older people in Lancing (and across the UK) an opportunity to try something new for free in their local community.
Staying active and social have been proven to be important to keeping fit and well in older age.
There will also be an opportunity to hear about other activities for older people that may be of interest.
To register interest or book a place, please call 01903 854640 or just come along on the day.

Spiritual Healing – Drop in Sessions

Our most recent “First Time for Everything” event at Chesham House was a talk and demonstration of Spiritual Healing. Something, it turns out, which is often misunderstood or clouded in mystery.
The event went down so well with the attendees, including a couple of sceptics, that the lovely Penelope & Sue have kindly agreed to do a monthly Drop in Session at Chesham House.

The first one will be on:
Tuesday 1st August 
10.30 am until 1.00 pm

After this we hope to continue the sessions at the same times on the first Tuesday of every month.
The sessions are free of charge, however a small voluntary donation to cover costs is requested.
