URGENT 1st Aid - Stroke or Heart Attack
“Learning about Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)  and a Defibrillator.”
Rattery Village Hall Monday 24th September 19.30 - 21.00hrs,
or Tuesday 25th September 9.30 - 11.00am
Are you confident that you know exactly what to do if someone has a stroke or a heart attack?  I know that I once did but I am more than a little rusty now, and would hate to feel that I failed someone in an emergency. I need to have a refresher course before it is too late. This is why I have arranged for John Hampton to carry out two sessions in Rattery Village Hall . One session is on Monday 24th September from 7.30 - 9.0pm and another on Tuesday 25th September from 9.30 - 11.0 am. Do try and attend one of these sessions - it could be a matter of life or death to someone.

Just turn up - and possibly save a life.

RSVP Bhangra Band
Saturday 10th November 2018 - Rattery Village Hall - 8.00pm

A Villages in Action Event

RSVP is a Bhangra band that blends traditional Punjabi celebratory folk music with Western musical influences to create a sound that is unusual when heard by mainstream listeners, but none of that matters, because their ability to perform to a crowd is perfect. Their stage personalities are lovable, the Asian drumbeats are infectious, and the Western slant gives the crowd something unique to enjoy.

With musicians drawn from one family, wholly rooted in an authentic living tradition, yet unafraid to innovate, this is the ultimate celebratory Indian music. RSVP will be bringing their Big Bhangra Beats and engaging, interactive vibe so be prepared to learn some Bhangra grooves and moves and get ready to party.

For tickets telephone 01364 72597 / 07879 438769

Wild Garden Children’s Group
We meet weekly on a Wednesday from 10-12pm. The group is focused on early years, walking - 7/8, but is open to all children (accompanied by an adult). 

We hold a Children’s Fire fortnightly where we learn, share and celebrate the seasons together. There is a recommended donation amount of £5.00 for an adult and child, and £2.00 for siblings and/or other additions for these sessions.
You are welcome to arrive from 10.00am, then we gather around the fire at 10:30am to check in and share a snack and a cuppa. There will be a planned activity which is very much ‘opt-in’. 

In the weeks in between the garden is open for a social gathering to anyone who would like to come along, hang out and enjoy the garden. These weeks will be my work days so there will still be things to learn and get involved with, if you like. These sessions are free, but please bring your own snacks.

Please bring any extra snacks, as you need, and dress for the outdoors. 

The group is secular and based around natural learning, nature connection with some forest school elements.

The weather is brightening so do feel free to bring a picnic and stay for lunch after.
