A CAMPAIGN has been launched in Tenbury to get people moving more.

Tenbury Community Pool are encouraging those over the age of 60 to become more active and improve their health and wellbeing.

The Forever Active campaign that is being delivered in partnership with Tenbury Community Pool and Freedom Leisure will take place in July.

The campaign will entitle anyone over the age of 60 to claim a three-day pass at the leisure centre.

The participants will be able to use the pass for swimming, aqua classes, gym and virtual fitness classes.


Adrian Taylor, chairman of Tenbury Community Pool, said: "The trustees of Tenbury Community Pool are pleased to be part of the initiative which will help develop, or rekindle, a health and fitness lifestyle and encourage a visit to the Tenbury swimming pool and gym for the over 60 age group for the first time.

Adele Hodges, Freedom Leisure's healthy communities manager, said: “We are really excited to launch Forever Active to support the older people of Tenbury. It is well known that physical activity can help strengthen the bones and muscles and improve balance, which can in turn reduce the risk of falls, fractures, osteoporosis and more!

"Less commonly known are the social and mental health benefits of improved confidence, reducing social isolation, improved sleep and more. We hope this campaign will help encourage more people to move more.”

Alongside the Forever Active campaign, the trustees of Tenbury Community Pool have made funding available for over 75 annual swimming passes for those who are finding the cost of the membership a barrier to swimming on a regular basis. The over 75 annual swimming pass allows swimming seven days a week and gives holders the ability to book in for Aqua classes too.
