●● DISOBE­DI­ENT dogs will be trained not to chase live­stock at an event this week­end.

An­i­mal be­haviourist Jez Frith is run­ning one-to-one train­ing ses­sions teach­ing own­ers how to pre­vent their dogs chas­ing live­stock, some­thing which is be­com­ing more of a prob­lem in and around the parish.

Jez says that live­stock chas­ing can be ex­cit­ing for dogs but it is trau­matic for the an­i­mal and has bad fi­nan­cial and emo­tional im­pact for farm­ers.

The ses­sions will take place at Sut­ton Hall Farm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 19. To learn more about the ses­sions or to book con­tact jez. frith@bt­in­ter­ or call 07712 134525.

Ad­vance book­ing is re­quired. ●● AN AFRICAN drum­ming work­shop will take place at Langley Vil­lage Hall.

The work­shop with the Kon­taani Drum­ming Group gives an in­tro­duc­tion to djembe drum­ming.

The three-hour work­shop cov­ers the ori­gin of the per­cus­sion in­stru­ment from West Africa and how to play it. It will teach the very ba­sic tech­niques, build­ing up to play­ing a full West African rhythm as a band.

The event will ex­plore sim­ple drum cir­cle tech­niques for re­lax­ation and med­i­ta­tion.

Marie Mill­ward, from Kon­taani, said: “Drum­ming is a won­der­ful stress buster. It helps to lift de­pres­sion, pro­motes well be­ing, it’s so­cially bond­ing, re­lax­ing and fun.”

The cost is £15 per per­son, over 16s only, and in­cludes re­fresh­ments and the use of a drum.

Those who wish to take the drum­ming fur­ther will be of­fered a place in the group’s weekly classes on Wed­nes­day evenings.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or to book a place call 07843 816601 or email marie@kon­

The work­shop is on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 17, from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
