Pop In Place Movement to Music Classes
The classes will take a holistic approach to wellbeing.
They are primarily designed to promote physical health by helping people of all ages and abilities stay or get more active, improve overall fitness, muscle strength and joint flexibility using a combination of chair based exercises and dance/gentle aerobics based ones.
Over time I will be creating some simple routines for some of the exercises as this can help with cognitive functioning.
All the exercises will be to music to promote mental health and well-being and where possible, movements can be adapted so that people with movement limitations can still join in.
There is also no pressure on anyone to do all the exercises and if anyone wants to sit out any of them they will be very welcome.
The classes will be in a friendly relaxed atmosphere where everybody will be made very welcome.
The classes are 45 minutes in duration and will be held every Monday from 11am-11:45 at the Village Hall.
The cost is £4 per class payable on arrival at the hall.
Enquiries about the classes can be emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone enquiries can be made via Lyn Simmonds on 01929 471528

We have gained some limited funding to provide one off crisis packs for people in the Parish in a critical situation, with no food.
We ask for donations of money, rather than food so that we can be very specific about what is put into the packages, ensuring it is of most use.
