The Wheel of Care runs three regular and friendly clubs at which all are very welcome. The Wheel of Care is unique among Good Neighbour Schemes in Surrey because we are the only Scheme which runs one club, let alone three! We think it is crucial that people who are perhaps living on their own and may be a little lonely have the opportunity to get out regularly and meet with friends for some companionship whilst at the same time taking part in some sort of activity.
Anyone living in neighbouring villages can attend any of the clubs - they are not limited to those living in West Horsley.
Help with transport to/from the clubs can also be arranged for those living in the Horsleys, Effingham or Ockham - just ring the Duty Officer on 01483 281703 up to one week in advance.
All clubs include tea or coffee and biscuits or cakes so why not come along and have some fun at one (or all!) of our clubs.
Our SEATED EXERCISE CLASS is great fun and is led by a professional exercise teacher. It takes the form of gentle exercise whilst sitting comfortably so may be particularly helpful for someone whose balance isn't as great as it used to be but who still wants to keep active. The movements are very easy and you just join in as much or as little as you are able to. There's a good mix of great music - everything from nostalgic "sing-along songs" to Latin music and lots in between. There is always lots of laughter too! This class is suitable for a huge range of abilities as you just do what you want to or can do - it is really not as sedate as you might think! It should also be suitable for people with either Parkinson's or Alzheimer's (but please bring your carer with you).
Seated Exercise takes place on Wednesdays (term-time only) between 10.45 - 11.30am (refreshments are served from 10.15am) in the Cedar Room (fully wheelchair accessible) at West Horsley Village Hall, The Street, KT24 6DD. A small donation of £2.50 is requested as a contribution towards running costs.
SCRABBLE CLUB is held every Tuesday afternoon between 2.00-3.45pm (doors open at 1.45pm) ... "a friendly challenge"! Although some of our longer-standing players are now Scrabble "demons", everyone is always happy to see new faces, whether you are an experienced Scrabble player or not and help is available in the shape of Scrabble dictionaries and a very useful list of two-letter words! New players are always welcome.
It is a lovely way in which to spend a couple of hours every week and the room we use provides a warm and cosy environment in which to play Scrabble so ... don't be put off. Come along and have some fun, whilst enjoying a cup of tea and a delicious piece of cake!
Scrabble Club meets in the Wesley Room at The Methodist Church, The Street, KT24 6DD (fully wheelchair accessible). A small donation of £1.50 is requested as a contribution towards the running costs.
FILM CLUB takes place on the second Monday of every month at 2pm with tea and home-made cakes served after the film.
The films shown over the past few years have varied enormously but they are normally recently-released films or much-loved classics and are much enjoyed by everyone who comes. Subtitles are used and the heating will be on if its cold outside ... there can't be a much better way to spend a Monday afternoon!
Due to restrictions imposed on us by our licence, we are unable to advertise the details of the films to be shown on this website. However, to find out what film is due to be shown next, please telephone the Duty Officer on 01483 281703 (Monday-Friday 10am-noon).
