Whatever your age or circumstance there will be an opportunity to sample and get involved in activities with the ‘feel good’ factor.

Would you like to get involved with a choir, strum a guitar or beat some drums?

You can use some energy in a dancing, cycling, walking group or enjoy armchair aerobics.

Make use of your spare time through volunteering opportunities or growing vegetables at a local allotment.
