Tai Chi

Having sadly lost our own Tai Chi group we would like to call your attention to an online  group offered by WheelPower, the wheelchair sport organisation based at Stoke Mandeville, Although designed for this group it is open to all. If you wish to find out more about it please use the button below 

An offer of Help

We have been asked to draw your attention to one aspect of the work of a local charity ‘Connection Support’ which works in partnership with Buckinghamshire Council. The charity offers many services but the one that might be on interest to some of our members is ‘Prevention Matters’ .This offers to help those living alone and perhaps feeling isolated or lacking in confidence to get out and about. An initial visit can be arranged to discuss the type of help they might be able to offer e.g. organising transport, putting you in touch with others in your local community, linking into other services offering advice and support.etc
The work is funded by Buckinghamshire Council but run by the charity.

They are also looking for volunteers who can act as Befrienders in the Aylesbury area

To find out more have a look at their website,
