Helping over-50s stay ‘fit as a fiddle’

THE OVER-50s are being urged to stay as ‘fit as a fiddle’ with the help of a series of exercise and health events in Bulwell.

Run by the Forever Young arm of Bulwell Forest Action Group, the initiative was launched on Tuesday March 1 at the United Reformed Church on Broomhill Road.

There will now be weekly fitness classes for the over-50s at the same venue from Wednesday March 23 (11 am).

Meanwhile a walking group, under the name Best Foot Forward, will launch on Monday March 28 from Colin Broughton Court. off St Albans Road (11 am). This will feature regular treks around local beauty spots, including Bestwood Country Park.

The group is also offering advice on reducing the risk of a stroke, plus monthly healthy-eating and cookery sessions, backed by pamplets and guest speakers. To register an interest, call Bill Blackamore on 07970 899129.
