Since January 2013 the venue for our Tuesday sessions has been The Barn, overlooking Hemlington Lake, and accessed from Nuneaton Drive, Hemlington, TS8 9DA. We have recently moved into a new room, smaller than before but clean and freshly decorated, well equipped and with a modern heating system. The Barn is now managed by Tees Valley Community Asset Preservation Trust, together with Hemlington Recreation Centre. You can find out more by visiting Hemlington Lake and Recreation Centre on Facebook.

Next door the recently opened The Cart House Cafe offers drinks, lunches and snacks.
