Free Activity Sessions For The Over 50's

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is offering residents, aged 50 and over, free passes to trial local sports activities to help people get more active.

The council is encouraging people over the summer months to set themselves small personal challenges to increase their general fitness, supported by a team of activity advisors to ensure they find the activity that suits their ability, interests and confidence levels.

The scheme is open now and runs until Friday, 13 July and is designed to get people to try a new activity, vouchers won't be accepted for an activity that someone is already attending.

Research has shown that 52 per cent of adults would like to do more activity, but that people are put off if they can't find a suitable activity close to them. This scheme will enable residents to find an activity they want to do close to their home or office. The activity advisors will also try and recommend the right activity for the person's ability and if they don't like it for any reason will try and find an alternative.

Gill Davison, senior community recreation officer, said: "The emphasis is on activity. Activity doesn't have to mean a gym workout or competitive sport. There are literally hundreds of activities within East Riding from Aerobics to Zumba to suit all ages, abilities and disabilities. Finding an activity you enjoy may also lead to many other positive benefits such meeting new friends, enjoying time with your loved ones, losing weight or feeling fitter and healthier."

To register, call (01482) 395320 or (01482) 392822 and mention the Get Active campaign.
