Our activities are designed to engage members and improve their physical and mental health, as well as creating opportunities to socialise and integrate in the community.
8pm - 9pm
All ages and disabilities can come to receive instruction on learning to swim or just swim and have fun in the water. We have a hoist and special equipment to make your swim enjoyable, whilst qualified Lifeguards are on duty to ensure your safety and peace of mind. It's amazing to see the transformation of those normally confined to a wheelchair when they enter the pool and can move under their own power and enjoy the freedom of the water.
In addition to exercising and moving in water, members can learn to swim for enjoyment or take part in competitive swimming. A dedicated swimming coach provides instruction to swimmers as and when required. In the water the ratio for all our swimmers is 1:1 where necessary. Aqua Aerobics sessions are also held once a month.
7pm - 7.30pm
Half hour sessions with a Qualified Gym Instructor and volunteers put members to the test. Members are given an introduction to the equipment with a personal fitness assessment and individual exercise programme. This helps to build fitness and muscle tone, as well as providing a boost to your confidence and self-esteem.
6.30pm - 9pm
We use an indoor Bowls Hall and play from one end. A team of bowlers meet every week to learn new skills, either working towards a competition, or just for fun! Volunteers and many bowlers join in to offer advice and help out.
Also, if you are interested in taking up bowls, or want to know how to play the game with guidance and support via coached bowlers, then contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, for information about joining a local bowls club, contact Mole Valey Indoor Bowls Club at email@example.com
