Wednesday Sessions at Irlam
Due to growing demand in Irlam and Cadishead, and difficulty accommodating all members at our sessions on Friday mornings, we now offer additional sessions on Wednesday mornings.
The focus of the sessions is “Healthy Hips & Hearts Exercise” which is mainly chair-based, followed by bingo and tai chi for arthritis and falls prevention. We also offer blood pressure testing and weight management support.
Irlam & Cadishead Healthy Heart Club meets at Irlam Steel Club every Wednesday (unless specified) & Friday from 9:30am until 12 noon.
In 2015 we were supported by the Co-operative Membership Community Fund. The grant was used to support our new weekly drop-in sessions held from 9.30 am until 12 noon on Wednesdays at Irlam Steel Club. The sessions aim to support people who want to improve their mobility, develop confidence getting out and about, and maintain their independence. The programme includes one hour of chair-based “healthy hips and hearts” exercise, followed by a game of bingo and tai chi. Members also have the opportunity to take part in weight management and can attend social trips and events organised by the social committee for Irlam & Cadishead.
On behalf of the members, we would like to say “Thank you” to the Co-op for supporting our work.
