Highwood Hall Closure May 10th

ETCA Admin2 | March 8, 2023 |

Highwood Hall is unavailable on the Wednesday 10th May so I am proposing to hold the class on Writtle village green from 10:00 to 12:00

I would like to invite anyone from any class to attend and experience doing Tai Chi outside. The more the merrier.

Bring your own picnic too if you wish and we can hopefully enjoy a relaxed morning together.

All of course subject to the weather…fingers crossed and hope to see you there.
