"If sport and physical activity was a drug it would be regarded as a miracle cure".   

Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England.

We promote both physical and mental health and wellbeing and support older people to remain independent for longer by helping them to stay fit and active in later life.

Fitness and Friendship Clubs

We have set up a number of Fitness and Friendship clubs across Wiltshire, providing social clubs for older people with an emphasis on keeping active.
