Weekly Nordic Walking sessions designed to keep older people active in Bermondsey are being launched by charity Silverfit.
Nordic Walking uses specially designed walking poles, which will be provided, to exercise the whole body. It can be practiced with or without prior experience, and will be offered alongside sessions in Tai Chi and yoga.
The classes are for over 45s of all abilities and will aim to improve balance, circulation, and confidence.
Sessions will run on Mondays from 1pm to 2.30pm at the Community Hall at the Biscuit Factory, 100 Clements Road, Bermondsey, SE16 4DG, and involve an hour of activity.
Sessions will be £1 for Silverfit members and £2.50 for non-members. The first session is free and annual membership is £5. For more information, go to www.silverfit.org.uk
