FENLANDER: Leisure centre holds series of strength and balance classes for older people

A SERIES of “Strength and Balance” classes designed to help older people feel steadier on their feet and reduce the risk of falls began in March this week.

They will run for 12 weeks on Thursdays (1-2pm) at the George Campbell Leisure Centre.

The classes are being led by Bianca Cirillo, an exercise specialist from Cambridge Community Services. The cost is �3 per session or �30 for the full course – a saving of �6.

Participants are asked to bring a soft drink, any medications such as angina or asthma sprays and money for the class. They are advised to wear flat, supportive shoes.

To book a place or get more details, call the George Campbell on 01354 622399 or Bianca Cirillo on 07960 944059.
