Keeping active is important as we get older. Engaging in physical activity - be it gardening, playing golf or simply getting out and about - will help older adults remain physically healthy and mentally alert.
We run a range of activities throughout the year. Have a look at our activities. Call 01442 259049 or download brochures and activity programmes which include lunch trips, day trips (seaside, canal day cruise, visit to Bletchley Park...), chair/yoga exercise classes, day centres, craft and woodwork sessions (DIY in Shed), friendship teas and more.
