Movers & Shakers (download flyer here)
programme has been run at
the church since 2013, 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.
This programme was re-started on June 29th 2022 and is open to new members.
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 gentle (seated) 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 £4.00 per head and the first session is FREE so that people can sample it without obligation.
