August - Community

The theme for August at Quay Place is Community, one of our important emotional needs.   We are social creatures who have a need to feel that we belong. Being part of a family, a workplace, volunteering and being members of faith groups helps us to meet the community. When this need is unmet we are at risk of becoming isolated and in adolescents an unmet need for community can cause young people to join groups which lead them astray. This month we will look at opportunities to meet the need to connect with others through many of our activities and events.

Colouring Group

Colouring group - Mondays between 2.00pm - 4.00pm 

Our adult colouring group is the ideal place to indulge your creative side.   Learn about the heritage of the building too by colouring in images all linked to Quay Place.  One of our volunteers Judy will be part of the group too so can help advise and encourage if you are new to colouring.    A great opportunity to meet new people and chat while colouring!   All pencils and templates provided.   

The group is free to join and will meet between 2.00-4.00pm on Monday afternoons.   Pre-booking not required just come along if and when you can.

 

Hatha / Flow Yoga Class

Meaning and Purpose: Finding Resilience

Thursday 21st September - 6.00pm-7.15pm

Having meaning and purpose in our lives can give us a reason to get out of bed in the morning, to persevere in the face of adversity and the resilience to cope with life challenges.   Our need for meaning and purpose can also leave us vulnerable when we are struggling to find meaning and purpose.  Our evening session will explore how meaning and purpose can protect meaning and purpose.
