Online yoga, upcycling and choir workshops

By May 5, 2020June 30th, 2020No Comments

Our Communities teams have been working hard to find ways to safely deliver the workshops and learning sessions they usually provide at our centres.

Our Friary Park community centre normally offers a weekly upcycling workshop and yoga session for the local community. Both sessions are now online and available to any Catalyst customer wishing to take part. They’ve also got some new additions, including an online community choir – adding some more fun and entertainment for all the family.

Dee Park cookery sessions – coming soon

This May, our Dee Park Communities team in Reading will be starting a six-part online cookery session for families and primary school children via Zoom. Each session will involve simple recipes. The team will deliver the key ingredients to you door and email instructions so you can prepare before each session. You’ll then log on at an agreed date and time for your live cookery session. This is free for all Dee Park Catalyst customers.
