We've got a great range of Health and Wellbeing schemes which will not only help you to get fitter and improve your health, but they're easy to access too. We are holding activities in local community venues and across South Staffordshire, some of which may well be right on your doorstep.
Gentle Exercise Classes
We hold weekly, gentle exercise classes for people over the age of 50 who want to start getting more active. The classes are a great way of meeting new people, getting a bit fitter and helping to improve your health. Classes cater for all fitness levels and are one hour. Charges apply.

South Staffordshire Cycling Scheme
The South Staffordshire Cycling Scheme is a fun and safe way to stay active and healthy. We have developed routes and rides for all ages and cycling abilities across South Staffordshire. Rides are free to join! All you need is a road worthy bike, helmet and some pennies for the important cafe stop. On your very first ride, please join the group 10 minutes before the start so you can complete a registration form.
The rides are perfect if you are new to cycling or a bit out of practice. Meet points and locations can be found below for January 2020- March 2020.
