The activities we provide help local people to remain active in our community to keep healthy and well and connected and to develop and maintain independence. People can choose to do things that will help them to meet new people, maintain friendships, grow in confidence both personally and physically and improving the quality of life that people have.

We encourage all those who join us to help us to shape the activities we do together so that we can benefit from the skills of participants and develop new activity that encourages the interests of  local people.

Some of our activities you can just drop in and join in so have a look and we look forward to meeting you.
