Let’s get moving, Beverley!

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s sport and play service are working in partnership with East Riding Leisure Beverley to launch a new multi activity session, suited to those people who would like to take part in some fun and friendly activity. The session is for people with long-term conditions and those returning to exercise.

The sessions will start on Thursday, 6 February at East Riding Leisure Beverley, from 1pm-2pm, and will run for 10 weeks. Participants will be given the option of trying a range of different activities such as Boccia (a form of bowls), New Age Kurling, ping pong, seated volleyball, short tennis, badminton and much more.

The council’s public health lead, Laurie Fergusson, said: “Exercise and physical activity is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but for too long we’ve neglected to take our recommended dose. Whatever your age, there is strong scientific evidence that being physically active can help you lead a healthier and happier life.

“People who are regularly active have a lower risk of developing many long term conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.

“Research shows that physical activity can also help to boost self-esteem, improve your mood, sleep quality and energy levels, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.”

The sessions at East Riding Leisure Beverley will be free of charge on the launch date and £2.60 thereafter. There is no need to book - just wear appropriate clothing and footwear and bring a drink.

The sessions are aimed at all ability levels and especially at those who are living with a long term condition, and are designed to offer a range of activities in a fun environment.

Sport and active communities officer Sarah Johnson said: “Whether you want to try a new activity or just meet new friends, come along to the sessions and have a go!”
