Julie’s Dru Yoga @ The Garden Room
Nov 13 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never done yoga, if its been a long time since you’ve been to a class or already do yoga, as…

Dru Yoga is for all ages and abilities and works with your body to relax, revitalise and re energise your whole being.

Dru Yoga is a graceful flowing style of yoga based on soft flowing movements, breathing techniques and visualisation.

Dru Yoga can help reduce stress and tension, ease back pain, improve spine health and release body tension. It helps to improve strength, flexibility and core stability helping to create a positive sense of wellbeing.

Dru Yoga is an holistic form of yoga bringing balance and harmony to body, mind and spirit. “Dru” means still point, and Dry Yoga enables us to find that stillness and calm away from the stress and strains of modern living.

Samatha Buddhist Meditation @ The Garden Room
Nov 13 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Samatha meditation is an effective but gentle way of training the mind to develop inner strength and freedom from turmoil. This produces a happier and more unified state of mind, leading on to clarity and understanding. This path from calm (samatha) to insight (vipassanā) was followed by the Buddha himself and is a central tradition of Buddhist meditation.

This group has been meeting for many years and is therefore not suitable for beginners. If you are interested in Samatha meditation please note that there is a beginners’ class in the Garden Room of Newport Memorial Hall on Friday morning 9am to 10am.

Further details can also be found at https://www.samatha.org/  the website for the National Centre for Samatha Meditation in Mid Wales.

Senior Citizens Lunch Club @ The Meeting Room, Newport Memorial Hall
Nov 15 @ 12:00 pm

Newport Luncheon Club meets in the Committee Room in Newport Memorial Hall on alternate Fridays when the meal starts at 12.30 pm. The food is home-cooked by volunteers and is healthy fare, consisting of 2 courses and tea or coffee. The cost of £3 includes a raffle ticket.

Carers who bring people to the meal are also welcome to stay.

If you are attending for the first time it would help with catering if you telephone one of the organisers beforehand.

If anyone needs help with transport to and from the Hall, the local Country Cars (Community Transport) team (Gaynor and Ken Davies 01239 820090) may be able to assist.

The Senior Citizens Welfare Committee organises a Christmas Lunch and a “Mystery Outing” each year for Luncheon Club members. There is also an outing for senior citizens in the summer, and at Christmas Newport people who are 90 years of age and over receive a Christmas present from the Committee, as do people who are housebound and those who have moved into a home elsewhere.

Donations to support all this work are always welcome.

The Luncheon Club is looking for extra volunteers to help produce the meal. This can be great fun and very rewarding work so if anyone feels they could spare a few hours now and then, or if any group would like to start a new team, please get in touch with Rosemary Elmes (01239 820104) or Elaine Lloyd (01239 820037)
