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 Spring into Action,  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 and 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 would like to discuss any of these issues, please call 0191 2808484 and the customer services team can pass your call to the relevant member of staff, or alternatively you can email our Active Age Coordinator 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
