Precise Pilates with Sally Cullum


Certified Body Control Pilates Teacher

Mondays 9.15-10.15am in The Coach Hall and 6pm & 7.15pm in The Buckingham Room at The Chantry, and Tuesdays 6.15pm & 7.30pm at Crossways Infant School. Classes also run in Charfield and Wotton-under-Edge.
Classes are limited to 12 clients so that personal attention and correction can be provided and all equipment is supplied. All clients are actively encouraged to work at a level that not only suits their own ability but also to work within the capabilities of their own body and not to feel pressured to keep up with other clients.
Body Control Pilates is remarkably effective, and medically approved. Central to the method is 'awareness of your own body' and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles: Relaxation, Concentration, Alignment, Breathing, Centring, Concentration, Stamina and Flowing Movements.

Zumba® with ZIN™ Members Amie King & Helen Allen


Making fitness fun for everyone

Every class feels like a party! Come join me and you'll see what I mean. You don't even have to know how to dance. Just move your body and follow my lead. It's easy!

Of course, you will sweat and the benefit of this is hopefully weight-loss, toning your body and overall better fitness levels. However, for me personally, the most beneficial side to Zumba® is the fact that you can forget the world around you and just empty your mind and dance, let go of all the stresses and strains of life and enjoy yourself.

Zumba®
Monday 9.30am at Almondsbury Sports and Social Club, Almondsbury
Monday 6pm at Turnberrie's Community Centre, Thornbury
Thursday 6.10pm at Gillingstool Primary School, Thornbury

Zumba Gold®
Tuesday 12.45pm CTK Social Club, Castle Street, Thornbury

Oldbury Fun Run


This Road Race covers a distance of just under 4 miles, the roads closed for the race.
The Red Start Road Race, which starts at 11am, is organised in association with Thornbury Running Club and is popular with competitive runners from all over the county.
The Blue Start, which starts 11.10am, is what puts the 'fun' into fun run. Whether you run, jog or walk, whether you are pushing a pram or you are a team dressed as pink poodles, the atmosphere is amazing!
The whole day is a celebration of everything that is best about living in a caring village community. And the great thing?... it's all for charity. We support the amazing work done by CLIC Sargent, plus we are able to help with smaller donations to village related charities and events.
