A range of activities with older people in mind
We're living longer, which is great news and we all want to age well. We know that a big part of ageing well is being active and ERCL has developed a range of activities with older people in mind. We'll leave you to decide how to define older age - you could be 50, 60, 70, 80 or 90!
Below is a brief description, with a contact person for each activity, to help you decide what you'd like to try. If you're looking for somewhere to keep your body and your mind active, in a fun and friendly environment, then come along to one of our activities. Don't worry if you're nervous, haven't been active, or haven't been out and about for a while. You'll be most welcome and we will look after you.
As you add years to your life, let us help you add life to your years.
