A low-impact version of football where players walk instead of run; supporting you to keep fit and socialise with like-minded people. Click here to find out more!
Tai Chi Shibashi can be done sitting or standing, which makes it very accessible and its benefits have been well researched. It can improve balance and cognitive function as well as aid with pain management. Sessions run over Zoom as well as in person.
We all miss meeting up at our local cafes and sharing a cuppa, but thanks to technology we have opened up telephone catch-up cafés! During the call we read an interesting short piece on South Bristol local history, followed by a friendly chat where we can discuss the topic and share stories and anecdotes. You don’t need to live in South Bristol to join, everyone welcome!
