Hammersmith and Fulham
Welcome to the new autumn term! The majority of our classes continue as before and we look forward to seeing you there.
Please note that our Pilates class has a new time and venue. We are still in White City, but the class will now take place at 10am in the church hall of Our Lady of Fatima. Remember to wear loose clothing and also do bring an old towel with you in case you need to support your head during the exercises.
Steady & Stable classes continue on Mondays and Tuesdays. These classes help build muscle strength and improve balance in order to minimise the risks of falling (or help recover after a fall). You can be referred by your GP or self-refer; for more details, please call Tina Mayley-James 020 8962 5582 (Tina’s working hours are Monday 9.00 - 13.00 hrs, Thursday 14.00 - 17.00 hrs and Friday 9.00 - 14.00 hrs).
In partnership with Chelsea Football Club Foundation we will be running two new Step Up Circuits classes on Wednesdays – one in the Fulham Cross area and the second in Edward Woods Community Centre. These classes will help build balance, strength and flexibility and will be particularly relevant if you have just completed the Steady & Stable programme. Details can be found in the activity programme.
Our monthly film clubs continue; we run one club on the last Wednesday of the month in partnership with Action on Disability and another on the second Thursday of the month in partnership with the Church of St Michael and St George in White City. Please see the full programme for details of these and all other activities!
If you have any questions, or have ideas for a class, call Vivienne on 078 24 48 49 84. Vivienne also offers a Link Up service which acts as a first step into participation in activities and groups of interest in the neighbourhood for anyone who would like support to meet new friends or get out of the house more.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Leaving a Gift in Your Will
Open Age is raising awareness of leaving a gift to charity in your will. Legacies are an important way to support Open Age, as they help us to plan so that we can be there in the future for older people who need us. As well as providing for your family, friends and other loved ones in your will, please do consider the possibility of leaving a gift to Open Age.
New Reed Centre!
We are delighted to be working in partnership with Octavia to deliver activities for older people at The Reed, a vibrant new community hub. For more information click here.
