Reading can be a wonderful and healthy escape from the stress of everyday life. Simply by opening a book, you allow yourself to be invited into a new world that distracts you from daily stress. Reading can even relax your body by lowering your heart rate and easing the tension in your muscles. You can either listen to our skilled facilitators reading from your favourite book or read along with the group.
Supper Club is where you can cultivate new friendships and deepen old ones. You can meet and dine with others on a regular basis in our Tea Room area either bringing along your own pre-cooked meal or arranging with the ARC to bring along ingredients so you can cook and eat together. This is always a fantastic occasion that guarantees you won’t lose touch with your friends.
Come along and join our fun table tennis (we call it ping pong!) sessions here at the ARC. Have a casual knock-around or take things a little more seriously by keeping score, it’s entirely up to you.
