PENSIONERS are invited to try a new sport for free as part of a new district council scheme.

Chichester Get Active is a new activity scheme for people over 65 from Chichester Wellbeing. It provides support to help people find their ideal activity and includes a voucher to try that activity once for free.

Madge Lambert from Selsey is 90 and still makes sure she makes time for her regular circuit class at Westgate Leisure Chichester.

“I really enjoy coming to the classes,” said Mrs Lambert.

“We do cycling, trampolining, rowing, step ups, weights and walking. I do feel it is doing me good. I also enjoy the social side of coming here as we do have a good laugh in the class.

“I am sure it has kept me going and my daughters encourage me to keep up the classes.”

Dozens of local sport and activity providers across the Chichester area, from bowls to swimming, are offering people their first session free for an activity of their choice.

To register call free on 0808 172 9472. For more information about Chichester Wellbeing please contact Elaine Thomas 01243 534588
