Covid 19 - Suspension of Activities and Events.

Because of the Corona virus pandemic and the lockdown regulations, we have had to suspend for the time being our normal social activities for older people. In the meantime we hope that you will keep visiting our website and watch for new developments on our News page or visit our Autumn Zoom Activities,  Keep fit in Lockdown and Social Events in Lockdown pages.

We are cautiously moving forward to look at the re-opening of all our regular activities, starting with our Yoga class at Forest Hall, and following with more Exercise groups and Line Dancing

Walking Group - After discussions with the walk group volunteers it has been decided, due to various factors, that the walk group will resume in March 2022 with one walk a month of between 4-5 miles. The walk programme will be released in late January/early February with further information on where you can pick up your copy to come nearer the time.

We really appreciate your patience and understanding with these matters. This is a difficult and challenging time for us all, however we remain optimistic with regard to our groups starting again.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss any of these issues, please call either  0191 2877012, 0191 2877027 or alternatively you can email our Community Development team at

We host a variety of weekly activities and monthly group gatherings for you to take part in. You can choose what’s right for you and join in, whether you want to stretch your muscles or your mind, we've got something for everyone.

Maybe you want to take part in physical activity, but don't feel up to it? Our Active Age Service could give you the support and advice you need.

  • If you have been physically active in the past
  • Would like to get active again and might need support, advice or motivation to get going
  • Are less active now because you have had changes in your life that make getting going again difficult
