Sunday 4th April 2021

For Easter, we will be connecting with St Luke’s Church in Cheltenham through a virtual Easter service on YouTube. We miss our regular church services here at Thirlestaine Park so it will be nice to see everyone again on screen. In the week leading up to Easter, we will be making Easter decorations and baked goods!

World Parkinson’s Day

Sunday 11th April 2021

Parkinson’s is a condition that affects the brain and for World Parkinson’s Day, we will be focussing on the mind, body and spirit with a full day of gentle exercise and mindfulness. We will start off the morning with a yoga session, followed by some tai chi and ending the afternoon with quite meditative spa sessions.

St George’s Day / Shakespeare Day

Friday 23rd April 2021

For St George’s Day this year, we will be baking the traditional English classic: Victoria sponge. The kitchen will make a toad in the hole for lunch with a trifle for dessert. This day also happens to coincide with Shakespeare Day, so we will be showing Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet in the afternoon.

National Gardening Week

From 26th April

By this time, our annual Porthaven Garden Challenge will be well underway and hopefully we will have lots of little seedlings sprouting all over our garden! We spent March planting a variety of fruits and vegetables such as beetroot, broccoli, aubergine, peppers, carrots and blueberries. We will continue to nurture our lovely garden here at Thirlestaine Park throughout National Gardening Week.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01242 505 560 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities or why not suggest an activity yourself!
