Bedford Borough Council’s ‘Over 70s’ programme has returned this New Year.
These gentle exercise classes and activities are a great opportunity to keep moving, try something different, and meet some new people.
There are a range of exercise classes for the over 70s, including chair-based fitness Pilates, table tennis, badminton, and stretch and balance classes.
These classes are well-established at Bedford Central Library, and Bedford International Athletic Stadium, with a new session coming to John Bunyan Sports and Fitness from Tuesday 8th January.
There is no need to book in advance, and the sessions cost £4 each which includes a tea or coffee afterwards. All equipment is provided, participants are just asked to wear comfortable clothing and footwear, and bring a drink.
Cllr Sarah-Jayne Gallagher, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said “It couldn’t be easier to give one of these sessions a try, just go along for some gentle exercise and maybe try something new. All abilities are welcome.
