We have plenty of free or low-cost activities on offer to help you improve your physical health, all year round. Whether you’re 15, 50 or 95 there’s something here for you!
Table tennis 6-8pm (ALL AGES, free): Anyone for a spot of ping-pong? Join in every Monday evening with this friendly, all-abilities session lead by a volunteer professional table tennis coach. Children, parents, young and older people socialize, keep fit and have fun together.
Our ping-pong sessions are so popular that we had to invest in a new table! We now have four, some of which were courtesy of the brilliant Loop in the Community initiative. There is also a board games corner available for whoever feels like a break from running around!
‘Great people, atmosphere, laughs. Does not feel like 2 hours, great fun getting fit. Nice to meet community and find out things. Thank you!’
Seated exercise 1-2pm (AGES 50+, £3): Low impact exercise to improve your bone and muscle strength, joints, mobility and flexibility. A very popular class which has been running for many years.
