Get Plucky in 2017, Year of the Rooster

It always feels good to start a new year. Christmas has come and gone and while we might be a few pounds heavier, hopefully we're also feeling relaxed and recharged from some forced time off. In the cold, dark winter holidays as we farewell the year we get time to be with family and friends, time to indulge in a few guilty pleasures whether that's a few too many mince pies and pork scratchings or many blissful hours of lounging on the sofa watching re-runs of Top Gear.

Whatever your guilty pleasure, it's always nice to have the chance to get it all out of your system. Emerge from your cocoon of crisp dust and pyjamas into the new year with a renewed sense of purpose and motivation. Well that's how it's supposed to go. If you're struggling to throw yourself into 2017, why not browse for ways to get enthusiastic about the year ahead?

Tap into your creative self with a creative writing introduction course in Derbyshire starting January 12th. Love cooking? Try the Italian Cucina workshop or the vegan and vegetarian cooking class in York on January 14th or have a go at bread making with introduction courses in Wallington, Norfolk and London on the 15th.

If Indoor Bowls is more your style there are a number of tournaments scheduled for mid-January in the Midlands, North East and Scotland or if it's 8 Ball Pool that takes your fancy, get involved in the London Regional qualifier on the 24th.

If your uncertain about where your interests lie in the year of the Rooster, or if you think you'd like to become a bit more social and give something back, then consider becoming a volunteer at CSSC. Volunteering is all about being part of a team and feeling productive. Not only will you be giving back but you'll also feel a sense of being valued which is an important emotional element that can often go unchecked in our lives. Get in touch today, you're only a phone call away from finding new friends in the CSSC volunteering community.
