Now in its third year, the annual Feel Alive from 65 Week aims to encourage older adults to increase their physical activity levels. Physical activity is an important part of our lives and is especially important as we get older. Last year, our Feel Alive from 65 campaign saw over 1,700 older adults participate in a range of physical activity sessions held across the county.

In partnership with localities, we will be hosting a range of exciting opportunities to get involved and increase activity levels.

From Monday 25th September to Sunday 1st October, we will see over 290 sessions available for older adults including Line Dancing, Walking Netball, Tai Chi and Gardening.

Take a look at the Activity Timetables available and find a session you fancy a go at!
