New Exercise Classes – Stay Strong & Steady

Active-Together-320Northleach with Eastington Town Council is introducing, in partnership with Gloucester County Council, an exercise class given by Denise Nethercott with the title ‘Fit for Life’.

The weekly class will start on Tuesday 26th April 2016 at the Westwoods Centre, Bassett Road, Northleach at 3pm and will last one hour. There will be a charge of £5 per class. The first class will be a taster, will include tea and coffee and will be free of charge.

This class is aimed at those of us who are less active and need help with balance to prevent falls in particular. Also, people with medical conditions who need gentle exercise to build up strength and co-ordination. Perhaps those who have recently had a course of physiotherapy who would like to continue with supervised professional and relevant exercise. The class can be taken either sitting or standing, whichever is most convenient.

As well as beneficial, this class can be lots of fun with a few laughs on the way – please do join us.

Map of potential development sites (click to enlarge)

Here is the latest news letter about the Neighbourhood Plan, delivered to all households in February. It identifies several potential development sites to deliver the things that you, the community, told us you wanted in the survey of the parish and in earlier consultations (you can read a summary in our State of the Parish Report).

The Steering Group’s thinking has also been informed by the Site Analysis Report, a copy of which is available to download or view below. Also here is the first draft of the Pre-Submission Neighbourhood Plan. These documents are also available in hard copy for you to view at the exhibitions currently underway.

After the open day on 12 March, the displays will remain up for you to view at Westwoods until 19 March. We welcome your thoughts and comments.

on behalf of the Steering Committee
