The Thomas Gifford Room can cater for all types of small class or studio sports, therapies, dance, martial arts and general wellbeing activities. It has a sprung floor, mirrors and a dance barre. Curtains and blinds can be drawn so that it is fully private.
The classes currently on offer are listed below together with the contact for the course leader. Generally the instructor will book and pay for the hire of the room and you will pay them directly, unless stated otherwise. Please contact the instructor if you would like to join any of the classes.
Commit to get fit with circuit training classes from our own Jason Biles. Wednesday’s LEANGym is a gym based class using our new Community Gym facility. It is a gentle gym based circuit class that suits all fitness abilities and is aimed at helping you make changes to your Lifestyle, Exercise and Nutrition. We can discreetly and individually weigh or measure you (optional and by appointment) and help you set some realistic goals that will make positive changes in your life all year round.
All the above courses are £7 per week. If you come to the Wednesday or Thursday class and have to miss your session, you can attend the Sunday class instead as that class can take extra people. Discounts are available for students.
To enrol please email Jason now: Jason@charlburycommunitycentre.org.uk
Simple strength, balance, flexibility and mobility is the focus for this class. A chair is used as a support as well as a range of equipment. As the class progresses, some time will be spent working on practising going down and up from the floor (or kneeling). This class is ideal for people who are worried about their balance.

Charlbury Art Society has completed the first phase of a Community Art Project to make and install swoops of swifts. The individual birds have been made from mosaic and the first swoop has been placed on the Nine Acres Pavilion wall in our courtyard outside the library. They look fantastic!
We now have a magnificent Christmas tree just outside the front door. Thanks to Halcyon farm discounting and delivering it, House and Carriage/MySTORE for sponsoring it and our doughty team of volunteers for erecting and decorating it. It will make a festive setting for our carol singing on Friday 14th at 8pm.
Please join us and the Charlbury School Choir to sing carols at 8pm on Friday 14th. There will be mince pies and mulled wine too - generously sponsored by the Font Cafe.
TG's cafe is now offering baked potatoes at lunch time, with a choice of fillings: cheese, baked beans (or both), tuna and sweetcorn with mayo. Why not stay for lunch after your sporting activities, or drop in for a tasty, warming lunch?
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
The Christmas quiz night will be Wed 12th November, set by Tom Smith. The café and bar open at 7.30pm for a prompt start at 8pm. Priced only £5 per player, these quizzes are usually a sell-out so get your tickets soon from reception. More details here. A big thank you to Derek Collett for hosting last month's event.
