With expert support and advice from our Live Active and gym staff - who specialise in supporting people to become more active, fit and healthy - residents in Dunterlie have been springing into activity at Barrhead Foundry, in a brand new project called Active8.
The project was made possible by Barrhead Housing, who have been funded by the European Social Fund to run an Aspiring Communities Programme in Dunterlie. Anyone who lives in Dunterlie, or is a Barrhead Housing tenant, is able to take advantage of a variety of groups, all with health and wellbeing in mind.
If participants complete the 10 week programme they qualify for a free 3 month ERCL fitness membership, which gives unlimited access to gym, fitness classes and swimming.
ERCL is delighted to be working with Barrhead Housing to give Dunterlie residents the opportunity to take advantage of the wonderful activities on offer at Barrhead Foundry.
Here are some of the other comments from current Active8 participants:
> "It's my Birthday in April so the membership is going to help me get in shape"
> "I've really enjoyed it, it's not what you think of when you think GYM"
> "I can't believe I'm getting a free membership, I'm on maternity leave and have just went to Zero pay, this will mean I can keep coming and don't need to worry about how I'll afford it"
There are two more Active8 groups planned this year and we look forward to welcoming more people to the Foundry. If you live in Dunterlie or are a Barrhead Housing tenant, get in touch for further info.
