Are you feeling stressed? Are you feeling tired? Have you lost touch with your inner self? Or just want to experience a different and more gentle form of exercise.
If the answer is yes, then why not try YOGA

The therapeutic properties of Yoga have long been known and are now widely accepted. There is an established class in Ripley Village hall (small hall) every Tuesday morning from 9:45 to 11:00 with Linda.
The class is a small and friendly mixed ability class, consisting of breathing exercises, posture work, relaxation and visualisation. The aim is for everyone to leave the class feeling less stressed and more relaxed and balanced than when they arrived.

Linda is a highly experienced teacher of Yoga. She has two teaching Diplomas and is on the Register of Exercise Professionals. She specialises in Stress Management, Relaxation and Back Problems.

Since the granting of the planning permission earlier this year, the Trustees of the hall have been working hard on finalising details for the interior of the new buildings to ensure that they will be suitable for all users. In particular, we have carefully planned and designed the space allocated for the Parish Council office so that it is a workable space for our many public meetings. We have also utilised the roof space above the office to create much needed storage areas for all the files and equipment needed to run our village. We are also liaising closely with our amateur dramatics and orchestral users to carefully design and optimise the stage, lighting and sound systems, incorporating a mezzanine level in the main hall. There is much detail to consider and get right!

The Trustees have been busy pursuing all major funding avenues to bring this building project to fruition. We are actively seeking significant investment from Guildford Borough Council to match the loan from the Parish Council but this continues to be a complex and lengthy process, in particular following the recent change of Council leadership and many newly elected Councillors. We remain confident however that we will secure the remaining funding required.

In the meantime, we have engaged a professional Quantity Surveyor to work alongside our Architect in order to comply with the stipulations required by potential major funders and thereby continue to progress this project.

The next fundraising event will be held on Friday 29th November – a pampering and Christmas shopping evening where there will be loads of stalls to buy some lovely Christmas presents. Watch out for the flyers and posters for more details.

A Surrey-based dance performance group for dancers aged 50 and older

Website

Quicksilver was formed in 2014 by Sonia Talman and Angela Hardcastle.

The company currently has nine dancers and we occasionally invite guest dancers to join us for our performances.  Our dancers range in age from fifty-something to eighty-something and have all had many years of dance training, albeit in most cases a long time ago!  All the company members take company class, or barre, every week, followed by a two hour rehearsal, which is supplemented by a solo or small group session during the week, when necessary

The rehearsals are an opportunity to learn and perfect the choreography, but also to work together as a company, collaborating in the creative process and supporting each other as we try new things.  We have been brought together by an enduring love of dance and that, combined with a good dose of humour, sees us through the occasional challenges, and many rewards, of rehearsal and performance.

The Tillingbourne Accordion Orchestra (then known as the Tillingbourne Accordion Band) was founded in 1988, meeting for rehearsals in Albury Village Hall.

In 1992 it moved to its present venue, Ripley Village Hall, where it still meets on Tuesdays at 8pm and potential members are always welcome. In April, 1990 the Orchestra founded Guildford Accordion Club, open to all , both players and non players. The Club meets on the third Friday of every month in Ripley Village Hall.

Guildford Accordion Club meets at 7.30pm on the third Friday of every month.

Each evening starts with a “playalong” from sheet music for accordionists of mixed ability, which is not only enjoyable for the performers, but also improves one’s sight-reading ability.

During the evening, there is an opportunity for individuals to perform solos or duets or small ensembles, which helps to develop one’s confidence playing in front of an audience. Several times a year, guest artists are invited to perform.

The club, which was formed in April 1990, now has a membership of over 130. This includes a number of people who do not play but like to come along and listen.
