Light exercise classes at Austin Rawlinson (closed temporarily), Speke.
The sessions are for people aged 50 plus and people recovering from injury or with ailments which may make normal exercise classes a bit of a challenge. Taking it slowly, our classes are a great way for you to keep active and meet friends.
We have a dedicated team of volunteers who offer a warm welcome and will provide support and assistance if requested. There’s always time for a cuppa and a chat in our social area so you can get to know other members and staff. We also hold social occasions,
for example, Christmas and Easter themed events with tea dances and free lunches.
