Quercus Communities

Quercus Communities are a new CIC that are offering an all inclusive care farm service based within a fully working farm.

Care farming is the provision of care combined with meaningful work, it can also be called ecotherapy. It is carried out on farms, woodlands and in market gardens with those who are often most vulnerable and excluded by society. It is an innovation in health and social care that provides an excellent opportunity for participants to reconnect with themselves, nature, each other and worthwhile work. Many participants on care farms experience improvements to their physical, mental and spiritual health and well-being. Participants connect with a healthy daily structure and meaningful work in a natural environment gaining social, educational and training benefits.

The benefits for participants are huge and include:

- Increased confidence, social interaction and group skills
- Improved physical and mental well being
- Development of routine, self reliance and a sense of achievement
- Learning skills in organic husbandry growing vegetables, herbs and cut flowers

University of the Third Age (U3A) - Bingham U3A

Bingham U3A is like good wine. When Peter Thompson and Lorna Wallace first planted the idea 3 years ago, it produced a wonderful harvest. The first meeting in Bingham WI Hall was full-bodied and enthusiastic, suggesting a fruitful venture was underway. Since then it has grown and blossomed, providing comfort and cheer for over 200 members.

The interest groups are as varied as wine, some sparkling like French, travel, cycling and walking. Others are smooth and warming like ambling, poetry, book reading and family history. The U3A bottle provides companionship and enables members to share educational, creative and leisure activities.

The Group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2.00pm in the Methodist Church Hall, Union Street, Bingham.

For membership contact  Pat Selby         pselby07@btinternet.com
