It's never too late to start your journey to becoming more active
The Manchester Evening News recently published an interesting and useful article about how you can make small changes to your daily routine to become more active that we wanted to share with you. You can see the article by clicking the button below
In partnership with Life Leisure, Age UK Stockport are running a new project at Brinnington Park Leisure Complex, Northumberland Road, SK5 8LS, called Active Afternoons.
Active Afternoons are perfect for anyone who wants to get out and increase their activity levels, but do not know where to start. This is an informal multisport session for adults of all ability levels. There will be a range of activities available from Cornhole to Pickleball.
This is also a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy a well-earned tea or coffee in the community room afterwards.
Come down and give something a go, you never know what your new favourite activity might be!
We are currently running a Walking Football session in partnership with Life Leisure at Brinnington Leisure Centre SK5 8LS every Monday 12.30- 1.30PM. It is open to both men and women that want to enjoy a slowed down version of the beautiful game.
The sessions are £3 each and you can sign up either at https://faevents.thefa.com/Book?SessionID=173082 , https://www.lifeleisure.net/active-communities-team/i-wish-id-tried/ or simply turn up on the day, pay and play. It is a great way to meet local people and stay active enjoying a popular sport at a slower pace.
We have partnered with Life Leisure and The Cherry Tree Project to cook up a storm with our new ActiviTEA session. ActiviTEA is a fun and interactive session that combines food and keeping fit, the perfect recipe for helping you to stay healthy. The lunch club will take place Fridays 12-2PM, at The Cherry Tree Cafe, Romiley, Stockport, SK6 4EY.
We anticipate that these sessions will be extremely popular, so it is essential to book onto these sessions in advance. To book or for further details contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0161 480 1211
Age UK Stockport is pleased to be supporting and working with the Good Gym.
GoodGym with the help of local Volunteers aims to provide support for local communities whilst encouraging people to get active. The programme is divided into three separate parts Missions, Coach Runs and Group runs. For information on each programme see below:
GoodGym offers the opportunity for local people to do good whilst getting physically active. The Missions aim to offer one-off, time limited, practical help to a member of the community aged 60+ that needs help. Missions are focussed on fixing a specific problem, such as clearing an overgrown garden, lifting heavy objects or changing smoke alarm batteries.
To help combat loneliness GoodGym have asked runners to visit an older person as part of their weekly run. An older person acts as a coach as they help to motivate someone to run and spend some time together. Coach runs can be fit around a runner’s schedule and don’t need to take up more than 20 minutes of your time per week.
Every week GoodGym help local community projects, and run back all within 90 minutes. Examples of tasks GoodGym can do include: run to plant trees for a local park, run to shift earth for a community gardening project and run to sort cans for a food bank.
If you know of anyone who could benefit from GoodGym’s help then please contact us on the information found below quoting GoodGym. Alternatively if you would like to Volunteer with GoodGym please see link: https://www.goodgym.org/areas/stockport
