Coronavirus update - 5 January 2021

In line with the new lockdown restrictions our centres and social groups will remain closed. We will continue to review and update our risk assessments to ensure we are doing everything we can to operate safely and in line with Government guidance. Keeping our members safe is paramount. We are still here for any older person during this difficult time and offering alternative support. If you have any questions or need help, or if you’re worried about a friend or family member during these challenging times, please contact us on 01903 731 800.

Swimming Sessions at St Francis Swimming Pool

We are very fortunate to be able to offer exclusive swimming sessions at St Francis Swimming Pool near the Princess Royal Hospital. The pool is 18m long and 6m wide with a depth of 1.6m at the deep end and 0.9m in the shallow end. The pool is also kept at a temperature of 31.5 degrees, which is warmer than most public pools. We have lots of excellent feedback from our swimmers, particularly those who may not have accessed swimming activities for some time.

Sessions are Tuesdays between 1:30pm and 2:45pm - booking essential. Telephone 01444 450 248 for more information.

Fitness and Exercise for Older Adults

We have a large and varied programme of activities including Pilates, Dance Fit, Latin American dance, Chairobics, Balance and Yoga as well as classes in Spanish and a variety of arts and crafts including Scrapbooking to name a few

Our classes

All our fitness activity classes are taken in our new bright air conditioned activity room, with instructors that are friendly and experienced in getting the most out of each session regardless of age or ability. Whichever class taken will be enjoyed and at the individual’s own pace.

In-house services and Salon Services

In need of luxurious pampering? Our therapy room offers the perfect place to relax and all at affordable prices. Beauty therapist, Jenny, provides a variety of treatments every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The therapy room also hosts other treatments including Reflexology with Kristine from 9am every Monday, Chiropody with Nush every Wednesday and Thursday and Acupuncture with Mark on Fridays. Non-members are welcome to come along to the centre and pay a small additional charge to access the Salon Services.

As of January 2019 we now have physiotherapy on offer with Emma Bradley every Tuesday afternoon from 1:00pm onwards.
