What’s Happening at Tassibee over Summer

Hope you are all enjoying the lovely weather, feels like Summer has arrived early 🙂

Here at Tassibee, we have listened to what you have been asking for as part of our Consultation period. Kathy and Fiona are busy working through your ideas on putting some funding applications together to help us getting funding to continue running TACS programme; start a citizenship programme; using technology to develop life skills; ICT the basics; Healthy cooking and trips to name a few!

We have also been busy working the partners and are offering the following activities during the next few months at Tassibee.

Keep Fit

If you are keeping up to date with us on Facebook, you will know that we have been meeting with Rotherham United Football Community Trust (RUFCT).  They are offering a Netball, Badminton and Walking Group for women and families during the summer holiday – starting week commencing 23rd July until 29th August.

Anyone who is interested in joining in these session, can meet with one of our Project Workers (Fiona and Yasmeen) beforehand at Tassibee, and we will go together. This will be a lovely opportunity to meet like minded women, have some fun, whilst getting fit.  See our events page for more information.

Also remember we have links with the Get Healthy Rotherham. If you register online, you can arrange to meet one of their Health Coaches. We are even running surgeries at Tassibee on Wednesdays.

Social Events and Trips Out

Tassibee Annual Trip this year is going to Scarborough on 10th July, we have had a lot of interest and tickets are selling fast.

Tassibee is running a Breakfast Group on Wednesdays throughout July – Pop in after you have dropped the kids off at school and enjoy the opportunity to have a chat over breakfast and meet other like minded women. Children are welcome.

We are also working with RUFCT to look at organising monthly mini bus trips out to local parks such as Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Clumber Park for a walk and picnic. More details to follow.

Craft and Sewing Sessions

We have started running our Wellbeing Craft Sessions again. Yesterday (and continuing on 24th July) we were busy making cards using punches. The ladies had a great laugh and it was lovely to see women young and ‘mature’.

We will be starting a Scrapbooking Project during July and August.  Scrapbooking is all about telling a story. It is an opportunity to creatively document an event or moments in your life. We will be providing support to plan your scrapbook; research quotes and phrases and provide resources, so you can create something that is personal to you. It doesn’t matter if you can’t make every week, just pop into the session you can.

The Sewing Sessions will continue during July and August. This is an opportunity for you to try out little projects or try your hand at quilting.

Tajweed Classes

We are honoured that Fadwua will be hosting 6 weeks of Tajweed classes twice a week. She will be holding sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays 12 – 1pm at Tassibee. The classes are accessible to all women, regardless of your ability and previous reading.

English and Reading Classes

Ummeed will be starting reading classes in September at Tassibee, again more information to come.

If you are interested in learning English, you can still join the ATL English classes, they will be run throughout the summer break.

Hopefully there is something there that you fancy trying 🙂
