Exercise classes for the elderly to resume on 17 May

Let’s Move, our exciting new opportunity for the elderly and anyone with mobility concerns to exercise in a safe, fun environment, will be re-starting from Monday 17th May.

We do seated exercises along to music, all designed to be safe, fun and aimed at the older generation to improve fitness, memory and wellbeing. It’s free to attend, and free refreshments will be provided.

As you get older, you might start to get aches and pains that you never had before, have less energy to go out, and become more vulnerable to falling. As a result you may struggle to continue enjoying the simple pleasures that you used to take for granted - like playing with the grandchildren, walking to the shops, or keeping in touch with friends and neighbours.

If you want to stay healthy and maintain your independence, it becomes even more important to remain active. Physical exercise can also help to improve your immune function, reduce your blood pressure, boost your metabolism, improve your balance and flexibility, and generally reduce the risk of serious conditions. As they say, “Use It or Lose It”.

Let’s Move will help you remain pain-free, independent and healthy as you get older.

From 17th May we will be running four sessions per week:

Every Monday at 2.30pm in the Gill Nethercott Centre, Winchester Street, Whitchurch RG28 7HP

Every Tuesday at 2.30pm in the Melrose Community Hall, 597 Abbey Rd, Popley, Basingstoke RG24 9ES

Every Wednesday morning at 10.30am in the Ambrose Allen Centre, 2 Franklin Avenue, Tadley RG26 4ET

Every Wednesday afternoon at 2.30pm in the Sherborne St John Village Hall, Kiln Road, Sherborne St John, Basingstoke RG24 9HR

In the interests of Covid security, please book in advance by emailing [email protected]

We’ll supply sanitizer and masks or visor free to participants and carers if wanted, and all staff are Covid trained.

And we'll provide lots of fun !
