Jo received a warm welcome from members of Baldernock Monday club
Jo Swinson joined with members of Baldernock Monday Club taking part in a ‘chairobics’ exercise session today. The weekly group meetings include exercises for the elderly participants, as well as guest speakers and discussions of community issues.
“Groups like the Monday Club give elderly residents the means to stay active socially, as well as helping them take what physical exercise can be managed. The group is a welcoming focal point in the community and I was delighted to meet its members during my visit today.
“There were plenty of issues that the group was keen to discuss, in particular the impact of rising energy prices. In light of rising fuel bills, many people, particularly elderly residents, are worried about meeting the cost of their energy bills when winter comes round.”
