Over 60s in Long Sutton and Sutton Bridge are being urged to join NHS approved movement to music classes to boost their all-round fitness.

Vitality is a Lincolnshire-based programme of exercise offering potential health benefits such as strengthening the heart, better circulation, lower blood pressure and weight loss through increased metabolic rate as well as improved mobility and balance.

Emma Battey, from Vitality, said: “It’s about all-over mobility and flexibility as well as strengthening your muscles.”

Classes are subsidised by Lincolnshire County Council so those who attend pay just £3 per hour long session starting at 1.30pm on Tuesdays in St Mary’s Church Hall, Long Sutton, and at 1.30pm on Thursdays at The Curlew Centre, Sutton Bridge. Refreshments are included.

As well as offering physical benefits, the classes can help people by giving them a sense of wellbeing, reducing anxiety, improving social contact and boosting self-esteem.
