Cricklewood’s Got Talent (Extravaganza)

We’re on for the talent show of 2021! Eight talented performers of all ages have signed up to take part in our mega fundraising Talent Show, scheduled for 21 February. It’s an eclectic mix of musical instrumentalists, singers, sketches, monologues and dancers, from the young, to the young-at-heart.

If you missed the sign up date, don’t worry, you can still be a part of it – in the audience. We’re looking for donations (an amount of your choice) via our KindLink platform. Donors will be sent a Zoom link shortly before the performance starts so they can take part.

We’d love it if you could share the event with friends and family. Use the button below to download a shareable flyer.

Sign and Sign – Free Taster

Good news! From September, Sign and Sign classes will be at the library. The even better news is that you can try a FREE taster class this month before you commit!

Sing & Sign
(Newborn – 2.5 years)
Sing and Sign is a programme of songs and rhymes teaching simple gestures (derived from sign language) which you can use to enhance communication with your baby before speech. Your teacher Tyan will use many signs in action songs and rhymes using pictures, puppets and props to inspire your baby’s attention and illustrate the signs. Research shows that signing boosts infant’s vocabulary and mental development, reduces tantrums and improves parent-child relationships. Our older toddler class involves more action and movement, whilst encouraging basic vocabulary.

When: Every Wednesday afternoon (30 mins per class)
1.45am – Stage 1 (5 months – 13 months)
2.30pm – Stage 2 (14 – 30 months)

Price: £150 for the full 12 week term *Price will be automatically amended if you join part-way through the term

Vaccine Bus Day

The coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine helps to make us all safer. It has been proved safe and effective by independent experts, and is the best way to protect people from coronavirus and save thousands of lives. The bus team will be offering the Oxford Astrazeneca vaccine to residents over the age of 40 years for their first dose or anyone over the age of 18 years, for their second dose (8 weeks apart).

Residents do not need to book, can come along and speak to the clinical staff and take their vaccine.The good news is that the Brent Covid-19 Vaccine Bus is coming to the library! They will attend on Thursday 24 June, and park near the entrance to the library at 152 Olive Road. The timings are likely to be 1000-1300. Please bring ID if you’d like to get the vaccine.

Cricklereaders Book Group

The Cricklereaders Book Group runs every six weeks, and we’re happy to say, this is now at the library. There are a couple of free spaces if anyone would like to join. See below for contact details!

Membership is free, but currently members buy their own reading copies. We hope to change this soon, though, so watch this space!

Older and Wiser Yoga

Many will know Susie from her community classes at Ashford Place and may like to join her class on Thursdays 10am at the Library. The classes are open to all abilities and ages. She teaches yoga to improve strength and balance, so that adaptability, flexibility and better mobility are achieved. Please bring your own mat and block and something warm to wear at the end during relaxation.

Gada Yoga with Karen O’Sullivan

The class will now take place at the brand new Cricklewood Library which has a really lovely activity room and will make a perfect home for our yoga class.
The room is smaller than our previous room and, in compliance with Step 3 guidance, will hold 9 mats (plus mine) placed at least 1 metre apart. The room also has an excellent ventilation system and windows can be kept open during the session.
For Covid track and trace purposes, the library will need to take down your name and time of arrival. Face coverings must be worn inside the library to access the room (unless you’re exempt) but can be removed once you’re on your mat. Hand sanitizer will be provided.

I will no longer provide equipment, so please bring a yoga mat, and you’ll also find plenty of use for your own yoga block and strap.

As spaces are limited and to avoid cash payments, the class will need to be booked and paid for online.

Classes will be released for booking every Tuesday evening for the following week. If the class is full you can join a waiting list and will be emailed if a space becomes available.

There is a 48-hour cancellation policy, which means that you’ll get a full refund if you cancel the class 48 hours or more before the class starts.

There is free parking after 3pm in nearby Oman Avenue and Anson Road (but not Olive Road) but please ensure you check the signs before parking your car.
Because of the limited spaces available, I’ve had to increase the price of the class to £8 and at least for now, I will not be able to offer discounts for block bookings.

If you would like to join, you’ll find the class on the ClassFit website or the ClassFit app, by searching “Gada Yoga“. Once you book your first class, it will be added to your favourites so should be quicker to access next time.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Pilates for Health and Fitness with Sofia Ali

If you would like to attend you will need a mat and if possible a theraband for some of the exercises. If you have not got these then a thick towel on top of carpet or a rug would suffice and you can use a pair of tights in place of a band. Some people have also bought a small Pilates ball (7”) but you don’t need to do this unless you plan to continue classes. In case you would like to get these things here are the links, though I appreciate you may not wish to use Amazon.

Or there is a deal where you can get both:

You can see more on my website  which also has a link to our Facebook page.

If you have any other questions or would like to speak on the phone first please feel free to contact me. Please also let me know if you have any injuries I need to know about in advance.
