Inclusive Activities afternoon at LMLC

Posted on: 2 March 2015

Lords Meadow Leisure Centre will be opening its doors to showcase facilities and activities available to the whole community where ability and age are no barriers.

You are invited to attend a free Open Activity Afternoon on Saturday 21 March, from 12.00 to 5.00pm at Lords Meadow Leisure Centre, Crediton.

In association with Upstream, The Turning Tides Project, Living Options and supported by Active Devon, the event will offer a wide range of free activities and free taster sessions that are accessible to all, as well as information stands. The event will enable disabled residents to experience activities that are available at the Centre and allow non-disabled friends, family and carers to enjoy the facilities together in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. It will also help the Centre to better develop an ongoing programme of accessible activities to be introduced from July 2015.

There will be friendly instructors and coaches on hand to talk to and answer any questions you may have, offer guided tours of the fitness studio and give expert advice. It will be a good opportunity to meet others interested in being active and to try something new in an informal way. The coffee shop will be open and a warm welcome awaits you.

There will be swimming, badminton, short mat bowls, squash, Boccia, racquetball, table-tennis, trampolining, bouncy castle and soft play available.

There will also be a programme of taster sessions including a falls prevention workshop, seated exercise class, street dancing, taiko drumming, a dance workshop, ‘Aquafit’ (water aerobics) sessions, rookie lifeguarding, gentle circuits, yoga, Pilates, parent and child ‘Aquatots’ fun pool sessions and more, all adapted to suit the abilities of the participants attending. And, Devon Football Association is providing a free, fun, inclusive football activity with coaching, multi skills and games for all abilities.

There’s no need to book, although groups may wish to let us know which activities they will be attending so we know we’re expecting you.

Lords Meadow Leisure Centre offers a wealth of opportunities to become more active and enjoy living a healthy lifestyle that are inclusive to the whole community. We welcome all those who would like to find activities that suit their abilities and interests. The Open Activity Afternoon is an ideal opportunity to meet the team, try something new and find out what is available on your doorstep.
