Lovely weather greeted the Harmony-Gateway Tai-Chi Organisation for their annual summer picnic and tai chi workshop which aims to promote health, fitness and wellbeing in Derbyshire.

For the first time, the event was held in the grounds of Jacobean manor house Eyam Hall, which has been the home of generations of the Wright family for over 300 years.

It has been two years since the event has been held outside as last year it was replaced by a sponsored 24-hour tai chi workshop where members, led by Alan Box and Susan Purdy, performed movements of tai chi round the clock, raising more than £5,000 for Ashgate and Treetops Hospices
