Over 50s exercise classes a hit


P


eople over the age of 50 in Abbots Langley are being helped to enjoy more active lives by


regular exercise classes in the village. The not-for-profit Hertfordshire Sports


Partnership‘s Active Together project aims to encourage residents to get their hearts racing and have fun while they do it. Henderson Hall in the High Street is the venue


for two classes per week. The first is a dance class which is held on Mondays between 10am and midday and costs £4 per session.


‘The emphasis is about


helping older people maintain their independence, have fun and make friends’


A second exercise class takes place on


Tuesdays between 11am and midday and is £2.50 per session. Active Together‘s project manager, Joe Capon, explained the benefits for people who get


involved: ―We attract people aged from 50 to 85 years old. Our instructors are all highly qualified and friendly. ―The emphasis is about helping older people


maintain their independence, have fun and make friends. ―We are also encouraging more men to get


involved with our classes as I‘m sure if they tried them out they‘d enjoy them.‖ The classes are part of a countywide


programme for residents over 50. Other sessions run in Watford, Hemel


Hempstead, Tring, Bovingdon and Flaunden. The project is funded by Hertfordshire County Council to improve community wellbeing. by Jerry Lyons
