The armchair exercise classes for the over 50’s have been given a helping hand with transport from Buzzer Buses.

The not for profit organisation provides a collect and drop off service to the classes at the Baptist Church for those who cannot use normal buses.

Exercise teacher Jaqui Shaw started the classes at the end of October after she was contacted by some residents who were interested in armchair exercise classes.

She said: “We have nine members who come to the weekly classes, they love it.

“I feel really fulfilled by the opportunity to provide this class as it makes so much difference to the well being of our older, physically challenged residents.

“It really gives me a buzz when they enjoy it so much and have all become friends.”

The weekly classes are on a Wednesday from 3pm, each class is £3 for 45 minutes. the hall is accessible for those in wheelchairs, walkers and scooters.
