The Virtual Village Hall (royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/VVH) is a programme of themed video sessions led by expert tutors and some well-known faces, Royal Voluntary Service activity co-ordinators and volunteers, and supported by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
Activities include gentle exercise, arts and crafts, cooking and baking, technology skills and quizzes with beatboxing, laughter yoga and Zumba Gold planned too.
Winner of The Great British Sewing Bee 2019, Juliet Uzor, will be demonstrating how to sew a simple tote bag, 2019 Masterchef winner Irini Tzortzoglou will be sharing her quick fried pitta bread recipe and couture stitcher Georgina Bellamy will introduce basic embroidery for beginners.
Sessions will be available seven days a week with both live and pre-recorded activities to join in with. Some downloadable guides will be available to print and share and there will be links to official government guidelines and COVID-19 information.
The charity’s hundreds of social clubs and groups are unable to meet during this time so the Virtual Village Hall programme is designed to bring people together to enjoy activities at the same time. The first live sessions will be on:
- Tuesday April 28 at 3pm: Zumba
- Wednesday April 29 at 3pm: Laughter Yoga
- Thursday April 30 at 3pm: Royal Academy of Dance Silver Swans beginners’ ballet class
