ARRCC is going out and about with new activities

By Irna Mortlock

ARRCC Members and Staff are out and about and making the most of the good weather.

We are now renting space at The School for our new p o t t e r y c l a s s e s , thanks to very generous donations we ha ve p u r – chased a kiln and pottery eq u i pment . Our members are producing s ome w o n d e r f u l work under the careful tuition of our ARRCC tutors and volunteers. We have a few spaces for anyone local who would like to join our class. The fee will be £15. per session.

Thanks again to our sponsors, we have been able to purchase 2 buses which has enabled us to take our Members ‘out and about’. They are going to a leisure centre to swim and exercise, trips to the pubs, Ashford Outlet Centre and now fishing which has proved very popular. Groups from the centre in Rye have been trying their hand at fishing the Rother. Specialist help from Volunteers have made this possible for our wheelchair users who are thoroughly enjoying this new sport. We’ve had some ‘tall stories’ and have yet to see the fish!

ARRCC still very much relies on continued support from the local communities. Due to the proposed funding cut backs, this assistance is becoming a vitally needed source of income. Please contact ARRCC at 1 Kiln Drive, Rye Foreign, Rye, TN31 7SQ or 01797 229398 if you would like any more information on how to sponsor us, volunteer or join the pottery classes.
