New Fitness & Friendship club coming to Marlborough

23rd January 2023, 10:27am | By andrewjack |

Fitness & Friendship Clubs provide a great opportunity for older adults to socialise and stay active.  Each meeting includes gentle exercise to help maintain strength, balance and flexibility.

There’s also lots of time to enjoy chatting over refreshments.

People who come to the clubs say that they enjoy the club because the exercises help with mobility, in particular where arthritis can result in a stiffening of the joints.

  • the exercises help release tightened muscles so that shoes and socks can be put on more easily
  • the clubs provide an opportunity to spend time with others who may be facing similar life challenges
  • last but absolutely not least, there is a lot of laughter.

The Marlborough Club takes place on alternate Tuesday afternoons from 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm at Marlborough Scout Hall, 45 George Lane, Marlborough, Wiltshire, SN8 4BX.   First session starts Tuesday 21st February.
