The Over 55’s Club

Every week the Trust invites retired and semi-retired people to join a club that makes sure for a casual atmosphere and encourages members to socialise and enjoy the sessions put on by the friendly staff.

Over the two hours a wide variety of activities including New Age Kurling, Boccia, Walking Football, Table Tennis and chair based exercise is offered to encourage physical activity for those wanting to keep fit.

If that’s not for you, not to worry as members are welcome to attend simply for the interaction, newspapers and free refreshments.

Gentler paced activities include bingo, quizzes, brain training exercises, singing and simply doing a crossword.

The aim of the Extra Time project is simple – to offer those who are retired or semi-retired a space and wider community to improve your physical, mental and social well being by taking part in regular activities.

New Age Kurling is a sport that requires participants to deliver ‘stones’ from one end of a court to a target at the other end. The target has red, white and blue concentric circles and scoring is determined by the number of stones closest to the centre of this target.

The winner is the player with the highest number of scoring ‘stones’ at the finish of the game.
