As well as this list of diarised activities there are a number of other regular events that you may be interested in:
Valerie spent the day at Burrswood under the Care for Carer's scheme that is run by the charity 3H Helping Hands for Holidays.
We are delighted to be working with 3H to offer support for carers via a day of rest and relaxation. Together we have devised a programme where carers can enjoy our beautiful setting and make use of the facilities.
Carers are looked after, participate in activities, receive treatments as well as having a delicious lunch and tea. It is a time for them.
We were delighted to cheer on the BBC Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge team through Groombridge on Saturday.
Along with many shops in Crowborough, our charity shop has joined in with a commemorative window.
Michelle, our shop manager, reports a number of interesting donations that she has sold from the shop recently - including a beautiful Victorian games table and a chaise longue. She was especially delighted that the chaise longue was bought by a person with some mobility issues and it was just what she needed.
There are more and more ways to be creative at Burrswood. Have a look at the events that are coming up but here are some recent testimonials:

We are most grateful to Claire for writing this review:
Kerry Ingham's 'Drawing for Relaxation' sessions at Burrswood have surpassed my expectations and I highly recommend the experience for all abilities.
Kerry, a professional artist and counsellor, warmly welcomed participants with a clear description of how the session was structured and lead us in our own explorations during the day. Any of our plaintive cries of "I'm not very good at drawing/art" were heard and then gently challe...

What a wonderful celebration we had here to mark 70 years of whole person care.
Our thanks to Bishop James Langstaff who officiated and the choir from All Saints Crowborough who sang and played beautifully under the direction of their musical director Catherine Allen.
The service ended with everyone planting acorns and gathering outside for the final prayer and blessing by the new wind sculpture which is a symbol of the movement of the Holy Spirit calling us forward in the purposes of God's...
"We all had a fabulous time, Claire not only showed us how to create our beautiful baskets but we also learned so much about the flowers and plants - it was a really interesting day. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous sunny weather so Claire took us outside to look at the gardens and collect foliage.
We were so well looked after and although we didn't know each other we all had a lovely day together.
I'd recommend this to anyone!"
