Steady And Strong Exercise Classes

Steady and Strong
Community Balance Classes

Having a fall can have a serious impact on anyone’s life - but for older people the consequences are even greater, including a loss of independence, mobility and confidence as well as the time it takes to recover. By preventing falls, older people’s chances of staying independent at home are significantly increased and they can continue to live an active lifestyle. Exercise is one of the most important factors in preventing a fall.

 Steady and Strong exercise classes are all taught by qualified postural stability instructors, who have been specifically trained to reduce falls in older people. The classes also link in with the NHS led fall prevention classes and provide a follow on for people completing their rehabilitation.

Classes are suitable for older people who are unsteady and will help them to carry on their normal daily routines and improve their balance.

A Festival of Angels in Botley

Is to be held from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 December

hosted by All Saints’ Church

Save the date now!

angel v2

In 2017 we held our very first Christmas Tree Festival and filled the church with Christmas Trees large and small, all decorated by different clubs, societies, organisations and businesses to reflect the creativity of their members and the activities they represented in the village.

Following the success of this event, we have invited our 2017 participants, plus a few new ones, to test the imagination of their members once again to create an angel of any size (the larger the better for display) and in any medium. There is just one rule. All angels must have wings!

However this year we should also like to extend our invitation to participate to a wider audience in the village. How creative are you, your family, friends or neighbours? What about entering

  • a Family angel,

  • a Neighbourhood angel,

  • a Friendship Group angel or

  • an Individual angel?

It’s not a competition. There’s no charge to enter. It’s for the fun of seeing our village come together to celebrate our creativity and the variety of what we have on offer in Botley. So why not join in?

Most importantly, do put the date in your diary now, to be sure to come and see the finished result!

For details of how to enter, please contact Lynn Gosden:
