Council encourages older generation to get active!
June 2019 - The Lisburn Advertiser
Glenmore Activity Centre, Lisburn, is home to the very unique Glenmore Fitness and Social Club, which aims to inspire people over the age of 55 to get active and improve their health and well-being.
The class has been in full swing for two years and has significantly grown in numbers with over 25 people attending each week. Participants take part in a range of different activities, including, 1960’s dance and circuits, followed by a much loved cuppa and a chat!
Chief Executive of Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council, David Burns would like to encourage the older generation across the City to get involved. He said: “This group is simply inspirational and proves that it is never too late to get exercising and meet new people!
“With the ageing population continuing to grow, and with social isolation and loneliness significant factors for the older generation, it is a priority for the council to provide opportunities to combat these barriers. Glenmore Fitness and Social Club is an excellent initiative that continues to provide a valuable lifeline to participants by improving health and well-being and creating new friendships. Again, I would encourage everyone to come along and give it a go.”
Glenmore Fitness and Social Club meet every Tuesday from 11.00am to 12noon at Glenmore Activity Centre. If you would like further information, please contact the Centre on 028 9266 2830.
