Epperstone Sports and Leisure Club

 

The club aims to provide a sports and social environment which encourages both adult and junior sport participation with opportunities for coaching and competitive activities.

 

It is an LTA affiliated tennis club with two grass artificial tennis courts which convert easily into a large 5-a-side football pitch - ideal for training and matches.

The courts have a floodlighting system which enables sports activities 365 days a year.

 

Whatever your level,you are welcome... come along and join in.

Epperstone W.I.
 
We began our October meeting by observing one minute’s silence to remember Dorothy Plumb and Sylvia Mellor, both former members of our WI who died recently.
 
During a week in which World Mental Health Day (10 Oct) was held, it seemed very timely to have a meeting focussing on “Mindfulness”. Our speaker Sue Kernahan, Epperstonian and WI member, is currently undertaking a training course which will qualify her to teach mindfulness to small groups.
Mindfulness has its roots in Buddhism and aims to help the individual to become aware, to appreciate and pay attention to a single focus, thus pushing aside other extraneous thoughts which may lead to anxiety or depression. Mindfulness has been hailed as “the next public health revolution”, and is now recommended by the NHS. Courses are being taught in many organisations and prisons.
As a method of self-help, mindfulness can help us to create our own well-being, and can teach us to avoid reacting in ways that make us feel stressed.
Sue closed our session on mindfulness with a short period of meditation. The questions and discussion which followed Sue’s mindfulness “taster”, reflected the growing concern which most of us feel around the issues of mental health.
 
Next month we celebrate our 98th Birthday with a faith supper and entertainment by “Voice Versa”. We meet at 7.30pm in the Village Hall on Tuesday 13 November.
