Quote… “Its Not just Bingo and Tea, you know”
This was overheard being said in one of Garforth’s Supermarkets by one of our clients to another dear lady who had asked why she was going to NET that afternoon.
Events of every kind help us keep active, keep fit and have some fun while we are doing it.
We hold many events throughout the year along with the regular Connect meetings in Garforth and all the surrounding villages.
Coffee mornings are held every Thursday NET Office Dover Street. It's a great meeting place to make and be with friends. Hot and cold drinks are available along with home made cakes and biscuits. Everyone welcome.
Active friendship groups operate in the villages of Barwick in Elmet, Garforth, Kippax, Great Preston, Micklefield and Swillington. Give us a ring or call in the office for more details.
Our new Out and About group is intended for the more active among you who fancy “Getting Out and About” our villages, Yorkshire and possibly further a field in the future. We visit places of interest that can involve some pleasant walks, followed by refreshments or a meal to enable energy levels to be replenished. These trips are not route marches or marathons but enjoyable walks with plenty of time to enjoy the places, views and company.
Other outings have included museums, fizzy drinks producers, prison, Magistrates Courts and Ampleforth Abbey. This shows the variety and how we cater for all.
If you are interested please contact the office for further details.
Keeping Fit and Healthy
We all know the best way of keeping healthy and active is to keep fit. This not only applies to the body but the mind as well. You are all aware that you need to be on the ball to keep up with our bingo callers at the regular events.
Our exercise classes are quite gentle and suitable for everyone. They are chair based, and designed to give the bones, a not too strenuous work out. If you fancy giving it a try please contact the NET Office.
Janet is shown here with her exercise class. The classes are usually at St Marys Community Room, Church lane Garforth on Thursday mornings.
For those who like a more gentle approach to life we have Chair Yoga with Fleck. In the relaxed atmosphere of the Dover Street conservatory, Fleck will help you relax your mind and body to cope with modern day living. The classes are every Tuesday AM.
Chair Pilate's with Denise every Tuesday afternoon 2-15 to 3-15 PM. Followed by refreshments.
