If you had to isolate during the pandemic and have lost some fitness, our Forever Active scheme is for you. We have a wide range of sessions available to help you rebuild strength, balance and confidence.
You can browse our directory to see what's on offer, with sessions suitable even if you have little or no experience.
You can choose from activities such as keep fit classes, seated exercise and yoga. Many activities take place in local village halls and parish buildings, so you should be able to find something near you.
We only include approved instructors, and they are keen to welcome new faces. Activities are sociable, friendly and informal with no pressure.
If you would like to join a class, you can contact the class instructor in the first instance.
If you are a little nervous or unsure of what to expect, the Forever Active Team can offer a buddy system. We will arrange a volunteer to meet and greet you at a class for the first time to help ease you in gently. You can contact us online or call 01245 06569 (option 4).
