We also hold regular events and activities, giving everyone a chance to participate in something local and fun.

Call 01823 345626 for more information.

 

Why exercise is good for you

Physical activity helps you stay healthy, active and independent as you get older and it’s not all about high impact exercise - it’s about finding something that’s right for you. For many people, it can be difficult to get started but it doesn’t matter how mobile you are, doing something to improve your fitness and mobility is a positive thing. And being fitter can also make you feel more confident, improve your self-esteem and generate a real sense of well-being.
