UK Spring CCI

Type of Event: 

 

UK CCI Spring Workshop 2017

Unstone, Derbyshire

5pm Friday 26nd May to 4pm Monday 29th May 2017

A long weekend in warm, peaceful and beautiful surroundings

 

A great opportunity to spend time with co-counsellors from all around the country. A chance to co-counsel, to learn new skills and to be challenged and supported. Take some time for yourself, walk in the woods, dance, sing, play games and eat great food. The programme will be co-created from your ‘offers’ and ‘wants’ of sessions, workshops, happenings and support groups. All co-counsellors, especially those who have recently trained, are welcome. This will be a drug-free and alcohol-free workshop. We welcome children and aim to provide some activities for them. For more info about the event see our website Unstone-cci.org and for details about the venue itself visit www.unstonegrange.co.uk.

 

Venue

 

Unstone Grange, Crow Lane, Unstone, S18 4AL. Website: unstonegrange.co.uk

 

 

 

Our venue is Unstone Grange. Nestling in five acres of grounds, Unstone is a secluded Victorian house and former coal baron's residence, rescued by a group of volunteers from the clutches of developers who wanted to turn it into flats. In 1996 it was bought by the newly-formed Unstone Grange Trust and its philosophy of 'Unity in Diversity' is interwoven throughout its work. It has become a jewel of sustainable community, run essentially by volunteers. Set in the lovely Derbyshire countryside, many groups such as ours use the atmosphere of Unstone, to express their creative spirit through many and varied forms. Unstone Grange is definitely a place to be – groups and individuals gather here to create for themselves a different time and space, away from the pressures of modern daily life.

Accommodation is in shared bedrooms (no bunk beds) and the main lounges are spacious and comfortable. The Grange is surrounded by its own organic gardens. The Grange can accommodate up to 38 people and accommodation is in single beds in 2, 3, 4, and 5- bedded rooms. Facilities include three group rooms, ten bedrooms, a large barn, camping field, lawns and grounds. We regret however, that this venue is not wheelchair accessible. There is parking space for cars. If you decide to join us, and we hope you will, more information will be sent to you on how to get here, shortly before the event.

You can book to stay in a shared room, camp in the camping field or attend non-residentially.

The event is fully catered on a wholesome, whole-food vegetarian basis. Please indicate special dietary requirements on the booking form.

We welcome children. We will try to provide child-care if viable. Please book early and/or encourage others with children to come to ensure a viable group.
