Steady and Strong

The Hampshire ‘Steady & Strong’ community exercise programme is designed to help older people regain and maintain strength, balance and coordination. Through being active, the chances of keeping mobile, staying independent and preventing falls are significantly increased. Active people are more likely to have better mood, be less anxious, have better memory, sleep better and have more social contacts. Please see the following document: Steady and Strong leaflet
The group meets weekly in Village Hall on a Tuesday from 1.15 to 2.15
