Trellech Village Hall Newsletter – March 2015


Spring is springing up everywhere.  Daffodils and snowdrops herald warmer weather and the longer evenings lift the spirits.  Of course, the sunshine also shows up the occasional cobweb and the words ‘Spring Clean’ start to loom large (at least they do in my house!).We have a new Tai Chi class coming up – limited places so book up if you’re interested.  We are also considering running a food co-operative from Trellech Teas – and that means fruit and vegetables at great prices, bagged up and ready for you to collect for the weekend.Last month Trellech Teas was taken over by Oscar’s Adventures and raised the most money we’ve ever raised at a single Teas.  To find out more about all these stories, and more, read on……


Trellech Teas news

On February 20th we had a ‘Take-Over’ Teas to help raise money in memory of a very special little boy, Oscar Meyrick. I am very pleased to tell you the grand total raised was £343.10.  That’s the most ever raised in a single Teas.

Thank you all on behalf of Oscar’s parents, Samantha and Richard.  The money raised goes towards four chosen causes: Children’s Heart Unit Fund, Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal, The British Heart Foundation and Ronald McDonald House, Bristol as well as supporting the units where Oscar spent his life.

Our next ‘Take Over Teas’ is on May 15th when Busy Bodies Playgroup will be raising money.  Put the date in your diaries now, it’s sure to be a fun one!


Yes, Trellech Teas will be open on Good Friday so come along, bring the kids, and enjoy some chocolatey, eggy delights!

New Tai Chi classes
Starts Monday April 13
7:00pm – 8:00pm
Steve Whiddett is starting a new 12 week Tai Chi class, beginning the 13th April.  The course will be suitable for absolute beginners and the first two sessions will focuss on principles, posture and the basic movements in Tai Chi.  For those who have already practiced some Tai Chi you can come to these sessions (and you are encouraged to if you can) but if you are unable or prefer not to, you can start at the session on April 27th.
This course will cover about one third of the 24 step Yang style routine, often referred to as the Beijing 24 routine. This routine is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. For those who have already trained with Steve, this course builds on the eight posture routine and all you have learned so far.
The course fee will be £60 for twelve weeks or £50 if starting on the 27th April, payable at the beginning of the course. Once the course has started the group can look at suitable dates for courses to cover the remaining sections of the routine.
For more information and to book, please contact Steve Whiddett on 01600 86096 or email him on
