New logo

Many thanks to Andreas Williams for designing the school a logo which you can see in all its glory. The logo was used for the first time on the invitations for the coffee morning and this week I have been along to a printing company to sort out getting t-shirts with our logo on. When we have them I'll get the classes to pose for a photo and post it here.

Successful coffee morning

The coffee morning was a huge success again. There were plenty of people coming and going and we raised a magnificant total of £380 for the Alder Hey Imagine Appeal. Tea and coffee were flowing and there were a huge range of homemade cakes for sale. In fact not all of them went. I brought some home and shared them out among family and neighbours. We also had two tombolas - bottle and prize plus a raffle. There were demonstrations of Tai Chi and Qigong and we even got most of the people up to have a go at some Qigong. Here are some photos from the morning.

Tai Chi Coffee Morning

We are holding a fundraising coffee morning on Wednesday 15th February at 10.30am - noon. The proceeds from the event are in aid of Alder Hey's Imagine Appeal. As well as refreshments (including yummy home made cakes) there will be a prize tombola and raffle. During the course of the morning we will also do some demonstrations and opportunities will be available for anyone to have a go. Please come and along and join us. Find out more about Tai Chi and raise money for a good cause at the same time. The location is St Charles Church, meeting room, Aigburth Road (where the classes are held.) I look forward to welcoming you.

Chinese New Year

Eight of us travelled to Wolverhampton on 29th January to watch and take part in the New Year celebrations organised by Faye and Tary Yip. We watched a range of demonstrations and even took part. I did the fan demonstration and then we all took part in the 24 step routine at the end. Some of us had a go at Chinese dance. We made our way back to Liverpool and a lovely Chinese buffet. The photo shows us chilling out between courses.
