Try Something New this New Year

Bedford Borough Council’s ‘Over 70s’ programme offers gentle exercise classes and activities. They are an opportunity to keep moving, try something different, and meet some new people.

The exercise classes include chair-based fitness Pilates, table tennis, badminton, and stretch and balance classes.

These classes return to the Bedford Central Library and Bedford International Athletic Stadium. A new session will be held at John Bunyan Sports and Fitness from Tuesday 8th January.

Cllr Sarah-Jayne Gallagher, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said

“It couldn’t be easier to give one of these sessions a try, just go along for some gentle exercise and maybe try something new. All abilities are welcome.”

There is no need to book in advance, and the sessions cost £4 each which includes a tea or coffee afterwards. All equipment is provided, participants are just asked to wear comfortable clothing and footwear, and bring a drink.
