Winter Warmer Roadshows

Winter Warmer event

A series of Winter Warmer roadshows are to be held across Northumberland in October to help older people to stay active, safe and connected in their communities.

The events are a great opportunity for people to get together, talk about their experiences and find out more about groups, activities and support that is available to them in their neighbourhood.

Local and voluntary organisations, housing associations and leisure and health services will all be present to offer helpful advice.

The drop-in events are being organised by Ageing Well Northumberland which works to promote the health and wellbeing of older people within their local communities and ensure the county is a great place in which to grow old.  It is delivered in partnership between Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Northumberland County Council.

Staff from Active Northumberland will also be on hand to provide advice on keeping fit and healthy in your golden years   Those attending can also find more about the GP Referral programme where Doctors or other other health professionals can refer individuals, who they feel would benefit from physical activity to help them improve their medical conditions, to their local leisure centre where they will receive support, advice and a personal fitness programme.

The roadshows will be taking place at Active Northumberland Leisure Centres on the following dates:

 The Swan Leisure Centre in Berwick, 4th October, 12 -3pm

Concordia Leisure Centre in Cramlington  5th October, 10am - 2pm

Wentworth Leisure Centre in Hexham 11th October, 1pm - 4pm

Ashington Leisure Centre 12th October, 9am - 12noon
