Active ageing

Benefits of being physically active as you age:

– Improved mood and self-esteem
– Less muscle pain
– Lower risk of illness, including reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes
– Maintain your strength and balance
– More energy
– Reduced risk of falling
– Having fun and socialising

We have a new programme of fun, social activities to help you stay active, healthy and age well. Classes are based on your physical ability level so there is always an activity you can take part in. Level details can be found in the downloads section.
