Alton Community Centre held its first Wellness Event on January 7 to raise funds for the centre.

It showcased the many things on offer at the centre to help start the new year on a positive note.

The free event included four ‘have a go’ sessions. Sue Kelly demonstrated the flowing, gentle movements of tai chi, there was yoga with Christine, and a chance to get moving with Sheron and Body Moves Fitness. There was also the opportunity to try Zumba Gold Low Impact with Kate from Hampshire Dance Fitness.

Local holistic therapy practitioners offered taster sessions in kinesiology, massage, sound healing and Emmett technique, and there was a chance to buy calming incense from Turtle Tarot, candles from Little Black Dog Candles and crystals from Crystal Harmony.

The centre’s next event will be the Psychic and Holistic Fair on March 3 from 10am to 3pm.
