Introduction to Mindfulness
Every Tuesday, 
Brockham Recreation Pavillion
As a busy mum and teacher, I have found Mindfulness to be invaluable over the last ten years to help me deal with the challenges of work and parenting, and also to remind me to appreciate the ordinary and special moments too. My children are now teenagers and my Mindfulness practice helps more than ever! I am a qualified Mindfulness teacher and run Mindful Surrey, leading a variety of courses for adults and children. Class size is limited to 12 but there are still some spaces available on the next Introduction course. Do visit 
www.mindfulsurrey.co.uk to find out more and see what past participants have got from the course. Please get in touch if you would like further information or to sign up. 
Best wishes, Catherine.

Rugbytots is a fun and dynamic pre-school play programme designed to build confidence and enhance core skills for 2 - 7 year old boys and girls. We look forward to meeting you and giving you a fun and friendly introduction to rugby in a positive and encouraging environment. Let’s make it more fun!
Make your child's development more fun!
Our fun, structured play sessions take children on a journey of sporting imagination with engaging and energetic coaches supporting them every step of the way whilst teaching how to catch, pass, kick, run with the ball and play as part of a team. 
Our motto
Our motto is simple; "make it more fun". We do this by delivering our specifically designed programme for each age group with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. This creates an atmosphere in the class that is totally unique and engaging for parents and children alike. 
What to expect
"Be prepared to run across the jungle, wade through the quick sand or sprint through Rugbytots Valley avoiding all the smoking boulders. Get ready to protect your egg, launch a missile or attack the pirates and seize the ship, all this of course, whilst trying to avoid the evil side lines!”
