Exercise classes are held at Good Neighbours each week:
These classes are funded through a mixture of grants and small charges. We use a graded system that allows older adults to find a class that suits their capabilities, but offers a chance to move to something more / less challenging should they want that.
Over 70 people attend each week, with volunteers providing transport for the Friday seated class where many of the participants are in the 80’s and 90’s.
Exercises include balance work, using resistance bands and hand weights, and movements to increase flexibility – as well as arm raising movements with cups of tea at the end !
We also hope to set up additional exercise classes for older people at Chorlton sports club on Hardy Lane
