A taste of fitness for older people in Hucknall

A free health and fitness taster session is being held in Hucknall, following news that Age UK Notts has secured a Big Lottery Fund grant.

The charity has launched its Fit for the Future project to help support older people to address health and wellbeing needs.

As part of the project, Age UK Notts is offering free health and fitness taster sessions to older people in Sutton and Hucknall.

A spokesman said: “For people who want to improve their mental and physical health these sessions are a great chance to find out more about diet and healthy eating as well as to sample some of the latest physical and craft activities while enjoying free refreshments.”

The Hucknall event takes place on Friday 24th January at The John Godber Centre, Ogle Street, Hucknall between noon and 2pm.

For those who enjoy the day, the launch will be followed by further healthy eating and activity sessions that can be booked through Age UK Notts.

Physical activities on the day include Tai Chi, seated Yoga, Golden Zumba and seated exercise whilst craft activities include glass and textile painting, hand massage, card craft and flower arranging. There will also be opportunities to sample healthy food, get new recipe ideas and healthy eating advice, and browse various interesting and informative stalls hosted by local councils, health organisations and faith groups.
