Over 60 (ish) Open Afternoon in Honiton!

They Came Along, Got Together and Joined In!

On Tuesday 27 February we flung open the doors of Honiton Leisure Centre to anyone aged over 60 - well ish - to come along and have a go!

Working in partnership with Active Devon, Devon Age UK and Bluebird Care we had an amazing FREE afternoon with heaps of free tea and coffee and some totally tasty cake!

We were planning on starting the afternoon with a welcome walk but with the super freezing cold temperatures and snow we decided to go straight into the taster sessions!

Everyone was given the chance to try Pilates, Racketball, Bowls, Gentle Studio Cycling, Boccia, New Age Curling and Functional Fitness MOT with our friendly experts

Our great supportive team were also on hand to talk about how to look after your health and wellbeing...

Lottie Edwards, our Community Engagement Manager, said

Its great to see so many people turn out to this event - despite the horrible weather - to take part in so many fun activities! 

We are looking forward to working with our partners again to be able to deliver another fabulous day!

I'm interested in trying to get fit because I suffer from a few health issues and being 71 I really am beginning to feel very unhealthy. Where are you situated, and how often do you meet. Many thanks!

Hi Yvonne! We have centres throughout East Devon and South Somerset, but these sessions were held at our Honiton Leisure Centre.  We have a great team of welcoming and friendly fitness instructors at each centre who will be in touch with you to arrange a relaxed chat about how we can help you feel better!
