Friday is a big day for club members. We start with exercise: chair-based yoga, from10:45am to 11:45am, followed by a chance to chat and socialise. A three-course lunch is served at 1pm.
The Lunch Club organises regular trips, in and out of London; maybe a day on the river or a dance workshop at Sadler’s Wells.
If you are interested in joining the Lunch Club, please speak to reception.
Tranquil Health and Wellbeing workshops
Find the peace you are looking for at our monthly workshops. The accent is on therapeutic activities, designed to increase mental and physical wellbeing. The sessions are organised by Glenda Daniel, who has considerable experience of working with older people suffering from loneliness and depression.
Brickworks hosts a weekly indoor bowls session for the over 55s, run by Arsenal staffer Mark Antoniewicz. The mat is 40ft long; the fun, endless. Mondays, 12pm – 2pm. Free of charge.
Dance with us! Join our weekly free dance classes and free lunch at Brickworks. Take part in the Get into Dance Community Festival at Sadler’s Wells, March 2023. 11am–12.30pm; Thursdays, 12 Jan–16 Mar
Our brilliant elders
We’d like to thank the many volunteers who’ve worked tirelessly for Hanley Crouch over the years. They include:
Brian and Marie Heywood: Brian was chair of the now defunct Ilex House Tenants Association and then became a pillar of the Brickworks community. The rooftop garden is named after his wife, Marie, who was known and loved throughout the area.
Carol Myers-Nobbs: did a brilliant job running the Monday arts and crafts sessions. She died in 2022 after 10 years’ service.
Kasum Tailor, who ran the Lunch Club and did all the cooking for many years. Kasum died in 2017 and is remembered with great affection and gratitude. Our kitchen is named after her.
