Let Maudie tell you about Ageing Well

Ageing Well is a National programme promoting physical activity for mental and physical health and wellbeing.  

“Adding years to life, adding life to years” is our aim and Age UK Somerset organises activities and sessions throughout Somerset including North Somerset.

Offering healthy lifestyles advice, physical activity and flexercise for fun - we aim to improve the health and wellbeing of older adults ensuring that ‘adding years to life also means adding life to years’.

Why exercise is good

Regular activity is essential in helping to remain agile and independent. It can greatly improve ones sense of well-being as well as help prevent or maintain future health problems. It makes you feel better and improves self-esteem, because you look and feel better about yourself. It is always enjoyed in a social situation.

Whatever you do start gently and gradually build up the length of time. Government recommendations state that you should build up to 30 minutes a day on most days of the week.

The cost

Our classes cost between £2 and £5 for a session lasting an hour or more, depending on what they are.  You will only pay for the classes you attend and you do not need to book in advance.  Class costs are periodically reviewed.
