Movers & Shakers
Download Jan/Feb '19
This award-winning programme is running in Gerrards Cross, to serve not only Gerrards Cross, but also Chalfont St Peter and surrounding areas. It is designed to encourage older adults to take part in easy physical, mental and creative activities after which a healthy lunch will be served. The NHS recognises Movers & Shakers as a good model and is keen to promote it.
Caring for elderly, lonely and vulnerable people is a topical issue as far as central government is concerned and Bucks County Council is actively engaged in promoting this kind of activity. Locally, Gerrards Cross Methodist Church is helping to sponsor this by allowing their Church Hall to be used for this purpose on a rent-free basis on Wednesdays from 10.30 am to 1.00 pm. Moreover, they are subsidising this project as a form of community outreach.
Coffee, tea and biscuits are served at 10.30 am, followed by a time for creative crafts, puzzles, games and talks. This is followed by a 45-minute session of easy physical exercises led by a qualified instructor, which is tailored to suit those present, after which a healthy two-course lunch is served.
The subsidised cost is only £3.00 per head and the first session is FREE so that people can sample it without obligation.
