They call themselves The Heavy Breathers Club and they meet every week at Holbeach St Johns Village Hall for some light exercise.

The group are more properly known as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) patients, and they meet each Wednesday (between 11.30 and whenever they finish, but usually about 1.30pm).

The group does circuit training, carrying out different exercises such as lifting weights, sweeping a broom and lifting tubes over their heads.
