Natty knitted hats keep noggins nicely warm!

Age UK Mid Devon volunteer Wendy is a dab hand with a pair of needles, and her handicraft is perfect for keeping the worst of the winter weather at bay. Wendy (pictured) gives Information & Advice Officer Mark one to try on for size - and he certainly looks prepared for anything! Bring on the wind and rain...

Walking Football comes to Mid Devon

Walking Football - the squad lines up for the first session, with Age UK Mid Devon's Deborah Bridger-Elerick looking on

They think it's all over... if that is what you thought about your footballing days, think again! Age UK Mid Devon has teamed up with Exeter City FC, Magelake Hall, Devon FA and Active Devon to launch Walking Football sessions in Uffculme.

It's the beautiful game we know and love but with a twist - it has to be played at walking pace, and if you run, you concede a free kick. The game is perfect for older players and those who haven't kicked a ball in anger in a long time. It's a great way to recapture those halcyon playing days of your youth - and you don't have to break into a jog to do it! 

Sessions are run by qualified coaches from Exeter City's Football in the Community team, who have succesfully introduced the sport to other parts of Devon. Anyone over 50 can take part, and if you like it, you can even be trained up to run your own sessions in your local area.

Sessions are being run on a Wednesday at Magelake Hall in Uffculme, from 11.15 - 12.30, and cost just £3 per session. To book a place, call us on 01884 255 369Give it a go - those dreams of footballing glory never need fade!
