Circuit training

We have re-started the Monday evening circuit training sessions in the Village Hall on Monday evenings between 6.30 and 7.30pm, but as a kind of do it yourself cooperative arrangement without an official trainer.
Let me know if you would like to join us - it involves stretching, strength building and aerobic exercises and as you can go at your own pace you do not have to be at any particular standard to join in.
Note the circuit training will not take place when the Village Hall is required for Parish Council meetings (see Calendar)
We will need to assemble a few bits of kit so if you have a yoga mat, some weights, skipping ropes, a gym ball, stop watch or a whistle that would also be helpful but don't worry if you haven't, we will work something out!
Hiring the hall is £6 an hour, so the cost will be nominal.
Participation is at your own risk!
All welcome (male & female, all ages)
Contact Peter Brookes on 470589 or email if you are interested in joining.

Lose it/Like it

As a small gesture towards greater sustainability and all that PAGE is doing in Priston, the Village Loop will from now on run a spin-off to help recycle “stuff”. The guidelines are simple – and flexible!

  • Let me (Aylet) know what you want to advertise on or text to 07801 440182.
  • The item can be anything, and as little or large as you want.
  • Please keep ad very short – dimensions, colour, type of wood for example.
  • If it is not a freebie, how much you want for it.
  • Please include your all contact details.
  • Indicate if it is a ‘Customer Collects’ item.
  • I will put out the list on the Village Loop roughly once a fortnight (this will depend on how popular or not the idea turns out to be. Your item will be dated, and after about 4 weeks will be taken off the list if there has been no interest.
  • If you want something, you can also ask for items. Again be fairly specific.
  • Please direct any queries on items to the disposer / acquiror – not me. I‘m just the communicator.
