This Girl Can – New and Short Term Grant Opportunity

This Girl Can Community Fund aims to support women aged 16+ to get active by offering National Lottery grants to local projects that will contribute to overcoming the barriers some women face in getting active: from a lack of opportunities offered in their local area, to the cost and availability of childcare.

Sport England is looking to support a wide range of ideas – from those that need just a few hundred pounds, o larger projects needing nearer £10,000.

Are you looking for something new to do in 2020?

Bakewell Pottery

A brand-new organisation has set up in Bakewell this new year. Bakewell Pottery, based at Station Yard, will offer a range of sessions for people of all ages and skills wanting to make pots.

Local resident Peter Cooper started pottery evening classes in 2014 run by Derbyshire Adult Ed. and held at Lady Manners School. Peter said  ‘I have got so much out of pottery, not just the creative process, but also the socialising, having fun and sharing the pleasure of getting the finished pot out of the kiln. I would like this to continue, not just for myself but for the local community and visitors to the Peak District’.

Hand Massage Training and Aromatherapy Introduction delivered by 4E Learning.

This session is for anyone working with or caring for someone with dementia, learning disabilities, mental health issues, or any other condition causing anxiety and stress.

Course fee £80.00, full payment must be received in order to secure a place.

Training will take place at the Matlock and District Mencap Centre, Greenaway Lane, Darley Lane, Matlock, DE4 2QB.
