Positive Ageing Group offers free sessions at pool for over 65s!
Stratford’s Positive Ageing Group is inviting senior community members to take the plunge and register for special free movement sessions at Wai o Rua – Stratford Aquatic Centre.
The classes, on offer as part of the Positive Ageing Forum on 30 March 2023, include a strength and balance line dancing class (out of the water), a deep-water aqua class, and an in-water boogie session.
Mayor Neil Volzke, says the group wants to encourage over 65s in Stratford to have a bit of fun.
“Getting out and doing new things, moving our bodies for health, and having a good chat are important at any age. But sometimes people need a bit of an incentive, and that’s where our free classes come in,” says Volzke.
“Don’t feel shy. Come and see what the new pool offers our older community. Enjoy the lunch we put on and enjoy yourself!”
Stratford’s Positive Ageing Group is made up of representatives from groups that serve the district’s senior community.
The Positive Ageing Forum pool classes are suitable for a variety of fitness and mobility levels.
To register for one of the free classes, contact Community Development Officer Vanessa Fischer at VFischer@stratford.govt.nz or phone 06 765 6099.
