An increasing number of people over the age off 55 are getting active thanks to the popularity of the Movers and Shakers, which is re-launching at Bourne End Care & Activity Centre on a weekly basis from today.

The Trust successfully secured a grant of almost £5,000 from Bucks County Council’s Prevention Matters fund through Heart of Bucks, to enable the programme to run at Bourne End Care and Activity Centre – a thriving hub in the heart of the village.

Already seeing a significant take-up across the county, Movers and Shakers will run every Tuesday from 2pm until 4pm until March 2017.

The sessions are developed around attendees’ preferences and are run by the centre’s trained care and activity team. They will provide local people over the age of 55 with the opportunity to enjoy a host of activities based on their preference, from hobbies, quizzes and speakers to chair-based exercises led by a specially trained coach, for just £3.00 per person.

Bourne End Care and Activity Centre manager, Debra Shirley, said:

“We’re thrilled to announce the addition of Movers and Shakers to our busy programme. It’s a great way for people from across the area to meet others as well as keep the mind and body fit – including those who may have difficulty getting around. We hope it’s as popular here as it has been across the county and we look forward to welcoming some new faces to our service.”
