We've got loads of exciting activities, talks & trips for you to enjoy. Find out What's On.

 

Here’s just a taster of the 120 activities we have on offer each month to keep you stretched – mentally, physically and culturally too.

 

Computer Classes

 

We offer a range of one hour classes which cater for absolute beginners right through to people who want to browse the internet and email with confidence.

 

Food for Thought talks

 

Come and join one of our talks by different inspiring and entertaining speakers every Tuesday 10.45am at Guild House SW19 4EF at a cost of £4. For a guide to the talks we have coming up this autumn please click here.

 

Knitting

 

Our knitting group have been meeting at the Guild every Monday morning for many years and new joiners are very welcome. They have steadfastly supported the Guild by selling their hand knitted garments at events throughout the year, for example raising money to enable us to purchase exercise equipment for our Exercise After Stroke classes.

Get Up and Go! Exercise class for over 55s

 

Keep fit and flexible, help to avoid falls and support recovery at this new class run in partnership with the South Mitcham Community Centre on Friday mornings.

 

Exercise After Stroke

 

Focussing on muscle mobility, flexibility, strength, co-ordination and balance our classes can help you regain and maintain your independence.

 

Come together over good food

 

Quiche and salad

At Wimbledon Guild’s HomeFood café on Worple Road open every weekday 10am - 4pm you are guaranteed a warm welcome and a tasty, home cooked meal. We offer a freshly prepared dish of the day and a great selection of sandwiches, jacket potatoes, soups, all followed by a delicious dessert. Our cakes are all made in house and are a perfect treat with a tea or coffee. We have regular fun filled themed lunches and tea parties which are a great way to meet new people. Pop in and try for yourself!

 

Love all things Italian?

 

Come and join our informal Italian culture and language sessions here at Guild House on Wednesday mornings led by our wonderful volunteer Yvonne, who grew up in Italy as a child. Sessions are very relaxed and informal. Yvonne will help you learn the basics to be able to navigate your way around Italy, touching also on its’ culture and its food (of course!), she’ll help you discover Italy in all its glory! Interested? Then please let us know.

 

Yoga

 

This ancient form of exercise targets strength, flexibility and breathing to enhance physical and mental wellbeing.

 

Men’s Matters

 

We’re always asked, "what is there for men at the Wimbledon Guild?" … So we’ve spoken to some of the men who regularly access our services and the overriding feeling seems to be, somewhere they can meet, swap stories, chat, discuss topics and generally put the world to rights! If this sounds like something you’d be interested in too then come along to our new 'Men's Matters' club which runs from 10:30 - 12:00 on Fridays in the relaxed surroundings of our Homefood Café.

 

Tai Chi

 

This class offers gentle exercise using natural movements and a wonderful way to make friends with your body.
