Keep active in mind, body and spirit..........
The NHS advise that being active reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression and dementia. Getting out and about on a regular basis reduces feelings of loneliness and stimulates the mind.
Choose an active life, with fun, friendships and fitness – starting at the Active Age Festival 2017!
