Regular activities at Lloyd Hall
We have many regular users of the hall. Below is a short introduction to the activities and contact details if you wish to get involved!
We are a lively group of like-minded women enjoying the ideals of the Women’s Institute (WI) of truth, justice, tolerance and fellowship, which are as strong and important now in the 21st Century as they were at the birth of the WI in 1915.
The WI exists to educate women to enable them to provide an effective role in the community, to expand their horizons and to develop and pass on important skills.
Outwood WI was formed in 1921. Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 2.30pm in the Lloyd Hall.
Visitors are always welcome and we do not charge entry. There is always a welcome cup of tea often with home made cake to round off the afternoon.
Yoga is the perfect way to keep on top of your physical and mental health in today’s busy world - all our commitments and responsibilities can leave us feeling frazzled and disjointed. But by developing body/mind awareness through a Yoga practice, you can find a moment of stillness, a sense of calmness and clarity, that you can take with you through the rest of your day.
Certified by the UK and European governing body Yoga Alliance, Kate teaches classes that combine gentle breath and self-awareness with alignment cues to build strength & flexibility in the body and the mind. Her intention is to help students develop body-awareness through the physical practice of yoga, and to offer them simple ways to find peace of mind, on and off the mat. Kate is also a clinical massage therapist, so you will find her understanding of anatomy, injury and pain conditions are also woven in to her yoga classes.
Worried that you won’t keep up? You don’t need to be flexible! Yoga is for every body - regardless of age or ability - and that’s why in Kate's classes she offers variations on postures that are accessible for all, allowing you to work in a way that suits how your body feels that day.
You will become stronger, more flexible and feel the benefits of your practice.
Wednesday mornings 9.30 - 10.30, drop in welcome. Drop in for £12 per class or get in touch to book a term at £10 a class.

PSDS provides support for children with Down syndrome and their families. Digbies (“developing individual growth by imaginative play, education and speech”) is a weekly pre-school development group run by psds, a charity whose principal goal is to provide support for children with down syndrome and their families. Digbies meets at Lloyd Hall on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Digbies is of great benefit not only to the children who take part but also parents who can experience first hand new ways to encourage and aid development in specific areas such as speech and language, early education and social interaction.
We specialise in teaching social dancing to couples in a relaxed fun environment.
Our aim is to enable couples to dance confidently to any level from beginner to advanced. Learn to dance with your own partner: Foxtrot, Quickstep, Tango, Waltz, Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Paso Doble, Rumba, Samba and Sequence Dances.
Practice nights are held alongside lessons to help dancers improve their technique. Tea Dances and Balls are arranged for Harmony Dancers to help build confidence.
So come along:
LEARN TO DANCE – MAKE NEW FRIENDS – and above all – HAVE FUN!
Buddhism and Meditation
Have you ever wanted to live a healthier, happier more fulfilling life?
For thousands of years people have benefited from meditation in just this way. Based within a Buddhist context the Triratna East Surrey Buddhism and Meditation Group offers individuals the opportunity to come together on a regular basis for collective practise in a friendly and supportive environment. We also offer Mindfulness courses placed within its original context as well as day and week/weekend retreats and a weekly study group.
Open to all regardless of age, gender or beliefs. All you need is an open mind. All classes are offered on a Dana (donation) basis.
Tuesday evenings 7:30pm - 9:30pm
We are a group of amateurs who meet at the Hall on Mondays between 10.00 and 12.00hrs.
There is no Tutor, we all help each other and have sets of chisels and mallets for newcomers to borrow until they get their own tools.
