Stay Active membership


We all know that as you get older it is incredibly important to keep physically active in order to keep healthy. Evidence shows that by taking part in regular exercise you have a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression and dementia. Taking part in activities based in a leisure centre also helps to widen your social connections and can improve confidence and wellbeing.

With this in mind, we have introduced a brand new Stay Active Membership designed for those aged 65 and over!
