This year, we are going to have a break over Christmas and New Year, for two main reasons: because the venue is installing a new floor in the sports hall (work starts on Thursday the 16th, so we have an early closing date!), and because I really need some time off to rest and recuperate. […]
As of this weekend (Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th of September), the way we run our weekend sessions will be changing. With the weather becoming less predictable, although perhaps with more rain, it is not going to be sustainable to keep running the sessions outdoors. Therefore, for health and safety as well as simple comfort, […]
Today marks the 4-year anniversary of when Liverpool HEMA opened its doors. Our previous anniversary in July last year was a slightly subdued affair, taking place near the end of the first major lockdown, without any legal opportunity to get together to celebrate. We had just started running online sessions through Zoom, and we kept […]
We have some wonderful updates for the club today! From Monday the 17th of May, sports clubs in England can return to training indoors. This means that Liverpool HEMA can return to the hall on Wednesday evenings. Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 pm We have made the necessary arrangements with the venue managers, so everything is set […]
We now have the opportunity to do some outdoor HEMA training on Sunday afternoons, until we can get back into the hall for our regular indoor training (most likely in May). The focus of these outdoor sessions will be “moving gently”: we need to take care with how we ease ourselves back into physical activity […]
After managing to run sessions every single week in December, we must now suspend our in-person training sessions once again, due to sports clubs closing for the third English lockdown. This means that from Tuesday the 5th of January until the week of the 15th-21st of February, there will not be any physical training sessions […]
We have quite a lot of exciting news today, because we will be reopening soon! There has been quite a lot of furious work in the background, paving the way for the club to reopen, while also finding us a venue with greater longevity and more space.
Today is the third anniversary of the club opening – Liverpool HEMA is now three years old as a group! This last year has been somewhat dominated by three months or so of coronavirus and therefore not being able to meet in person. However, we have rallied and have been running some virtual training sessions […]
We have just released another new promotional video for the club! At our final session before breaking for Christmas and new year, we did a little filming. The brief was “do something cool in front of the camera”, because we believe that with even just a session or two of training, everyone is capable of […]
Today we can celebrate the 2 year anniversary of Liverpool HEMA opening its doors! We had our first session on the 19th of July 2017, and it has been a lot of fun since then. Quite a few of our current members have been with us since the club opened and many more have joined […]
We ran a filming session at the end of December, with the goal of performing some cool stuff on camera and creating a new promotional video for the club to help show what sort of things we do. My hope for the video was for it to feature club members, rather than showing off what […]
Since most of us will be busy celebrating Christmas and New Year with friends and family, and since the venue is also closed during the period, there will be a couple of weeks when our classes will not be running. Our schedule will be as follows for the Christmas and New Year period: Month Date […]
As of today, the club is celebrating our 1 year anniversary! We opened our doors on the 19th of July 2017, and so today marks a full year of being open.
The website now has a news feed! We have been making several updates to the website recently, to improve its loading speeds and reliability. Now that these tasks have been dealt with (and now that the site is now much faster and more stable than before!), we can turn some attention to improving the features […]
