We would like to thank you all for your support this year with the Timebank and we wish you a very Merry Christmas.


One of our members, April has shared below her thanks for other members helping -

'I am very encouraged that 3 timebank volunteers would like to help me grow vegetables in my garden.  We have dug in some compost and will be ready with a plan to do the planting in the spring. It will be good to use the garden and be able to share the vegetables.  A big thank you to those involved'

Other News
You may remember  in our September Newsletter, we told  you about David who is a qualified 'Body Stress Practitioner'. Here is an article, Ella has written about her experiences of the Body Stress Release. 

Sometimes in life, things seem to happen in synchronicity. I went for a walk with friends in Newtown and saw a brass plaque on a cottage gate, reading ‘Body Stress Release.’ At the same time, I was considering visiting a chiropractor or physiotherapist to sort out a nagging back ache but, being a bit of a wimp, couldn’t decide whether I was brave enough to have treatment in case it hurt. Then Sally had an offer of an introductory set of appointments with David Flannagan, the body stress release practitioner whose practice I’d seen on my walk in Newtown. It felt like it was meant to be.
My first appointment of the three initial appointments was an hour long. David took a detailed case history and corrected some postural mistakes I was making – simple things like sitting with my legs crossed, sitting up in bed to read, or leaning forward rather than sitting up straight. He then gave me my first ‘release’ treatment. It was lovely. You stand, fully clothed, facing a vertical bed. The bed lowers, with you on it, and David gently taps and touches different parts of your body as he encourages your body to release any tension stored. You are then raised back to standing and the procedure is repeated with you facing forwards.
It is hard to believe that anything so gentle could be so effective, but even after one treatment I felt better. After the other two treatments my back ache – a constant companion for about 5 years – had completely gone. It apparently works equally well on a range of physical, emotional, gynaecological, gastro-intestinal and childhood complaints and I can well believe it after my experience. You are under no pressure to have further treatments and can continue to attend sessions regularly, periodically or as and when it is needed. David’s appointment book is busy – testimony to how well his treatments work and I will certainly continue to go. Not being able to sit up in bed with a morning cup of tea is a small price to pay for being pain free!

If you are interested in trying a session, please let  Sally  know.
