A regular column from South Holland Centre in Spalding

Whether or not you have children going back to school, September often marks a time when we all think about starting something new. So this week, we thought it would be useful to write about the regular ‘health and wellbeing’ activities taking place at South Holland Centre.



Parents and carers with a pre-schooler at home can bring them along to Little Explorers, a brand new weekly art class from Friday, September 18 (10.30am to 11.30am) during term-time. Led by Sarah from the Creation Station, these creative sessions are a chance for adults to have some messy fun with their little ones, and enjoy some social time too!

There’s a range of activities for young people on offer. Those aged 11 to 17 can learn how to Street Dance with Kimberley Chapman on Mondays from 5pm; 8 to 18s have the chance to join Liz Lenten’s funky Vibe Youth Choir from Thursday, September 10 at 5.30pm; and 14 to 25s are invited to share ideas at the centre’s forward thinking young producer/programming group Youth Takeover which starts back at 4pm on September 22.

Meanwhile adults can learn French with Pierrette Humphreys on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7pm; nurture a calm and peaceful mind at weekly Meditation Classes run by Buddhist nun Gen Nyingpo from Thursday, September 10; or sing in a mix of styles with Voices Unplugged from Saturday, September 19 at 2.30pm.

And if all that isn’t quite enough, a sociable leisure walking group departs from the centre most Mondays at 10.45am; and Lesley Kidd’s Line Dancing sessions kick-off in our Function Hall on Monday evenings. We hope that offers lots of inspiration – call 01775 764777 or visit
