In the UK, almost all adults are regular users of the internet (99% of those between 16 and 34 and 89% of those older than 35) and about 95% of them turn to Google when they are looking for something. 
This makes it a really important to any business which uses the internet as part of their marketing strategy. Have you ever wondered how companies get their websites to the top of Page 1 on Google?
You may have come across the term Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and it’s the application of effective SEO techniques to your website that will help your website move up the Google listings. 
But it’s not just about being at the top of the search results, it’s about having an effective website that your visitors will find easy to navigate and use and about making sure that your business is visible across the internet, in all the places that your customers would expect to find you. 
In this workshop, our coach (Andy Poulton) will be providing you with hints and tips on how you can make your website really work for you, how you can apply SEO in order to move your site higher in the Google search results and then move on to a range of ways that you can use Social media and Video marketing opportunities to promote your business, build awareness, demonstrate credibility and ultimately attract new enquiries and generate more business.

Join our host, unstable genius Alistair Pound, for a night of un-traditional quiz questions, tomfoolery and straight up codswallop.

I'll aim to be there between 7pm and 7.15pm to reserve a table and to give us a chance to say hello and order drinks.

The quiz itself will start at 7.30pm.

The venue is the Chapter One pub on London Road in Bath, which is on the corner of Hanover Street and opposite Morrisons

(small print: max team size 6 adult persons, whilst there's no aim to be deliberately racy the quiz content will not be suitable for children, cheaters & jerks need not apply, and yes, you can still get takeaway delivered to the pub.)
Free Meditation & Yoga – just show up–we start on Wednesday in Bath 7.30pm
Free Meditation & Yoga Bath
7:30pm - 9pm


Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
18th April - 13th June

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Line, measurement and proportion
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
