Pantomime Gala Evening Success!

All set-up ready for the gala film premier

A great evening was enjoyed by the cast, crew, helpers and partners of the Bishopswood Pantomime Players. As is the norm, we gather for a film premier evening of the pantomime so that those taking part get a chance to view it, plus get together again as one large family.

This time around due to the Covid-19 situation it’s been a long time coming. The final performance of the pantomime – Treasure Island – took place just days before the first “lock down”. So, it is almost two years of waiting to get back together. Around 35 people attended and enjoyed the two hour show accompanied by drinks and nibbles.

As has become tradition our Producer and Director, David Emerson CBE was presented with an album as a memento of the pantomime with the thanks of everyone that took part in any way.

New Class at Bishopswood Village Hall

Trigger Point Pilates

Thursday November 4th at 6:30pmIntroduction to Trigger Point Pilates (TPP) Mat Work

A Pilates based Myofascia Trigger Point body work system.

You will start the class by gently mobilising the body, learning how to stay in good alignment and how to connect breath to each exercise. Using compression, movement and dynamic stretch you will journey through a system to release the body’s fascia, trigger point by trigger point. During the class you will use foam rollers, small spiky myofascial release balls, midi sized pilates balls and stretch bands. Most of the class is spent on an exercise mat.

The training method helps alleviate chronic pain conditions and constant muscular tightness, undoing muscular restrictions and enhances functional movement. At the end of a class one feels light, lengthened and able to move with total ease.

In fact, not only is it an excellent treatment for people from all walks of life, it’s also a great warm up and cool down class for high-intensity training.

TPP enhances movement, aligns, strengthens and lengthens limbs. Helping all, including clients with chronic myofascial pain post rehab to releasing the body from inside to out.

New Section Added to Website

What to See & Do

A new menu menu section has been added to the website “Visiting”. The section currently includes links to the “Brief History of Bishopswood” page that was added last month, and a new page detailing “What to See & Do”. Over the coming months we will add more pages on where to stay and eat etc. Although the section is headed “Visiting”, much of the information is just as useful to residents as it is visitors.

Keep exploring the website as new information is being added regularly and is not always announced. If there is something you would like to see then please get in touch via the contact page.
