Penzance HE Group – Autumn Schedule

3 November, 2010 at 21:42 Leave a comment




Unless otherwise stated all sessions are held at the Lescudjack Children’s Centre (formerly SureStart), Penmere Close, PZ . Normally in the gym downstairs.

***Mondays 2-4pm***

The workshops cost £1.50 for families with one child under the age of 4, £2.50 for one child four or over, and £3 for more than one child over four.

We adopt the Education Otherwise guidelines and rules for the safe running of the group – please get a copy from Ruth if you don’t have one. One important point is that during the sessions children remain the responsibility of their parents at all times – or parents should agree in advance with another adult for them to take that responsibility. The centre ask us not to bring hot drinks into the gym. The group organiser is Ruth Boulton (01736 350887).



Weekly drop in on Wednesdays at Penzance Leisure Centre 12 onwards.

Just turn up, and pay regular swim entrance fee.

You may take a trip charting Tom Rakewell‘s rise and fall in old London with the hero of Hogarth’s Rakes Progress and eventually explore the seven worlds of gypsy folk lore on an epic journey with Kalo Dant.
