Discover Health 50+ is a Great Success!


Our very popular Discover Health 50+ project began in October 2016 with the purpose of engaging people aged 50+ who were not taking part in health and wellbeing activities. 

Over 100 people participated in the activities offered, which included circuit classes, health walks, healthy cooking demonstrations, dance taster sessions, gym, tai chi, computer taster session, seated exercise, Nordic walking, yoga and a pamper day.

Many of these tasters were carried out at Deckham Village Hall, and at least once a month there was a taster session at an external venue, including FACT (Swalwell), Watergate Park (Lobley Hill), Lobley Hill Community Centre, Gibside National Trust (Rowlands Giill), Sight Service (Bill Quay), and a range of sheltered accommodation schemes across Gateshead.
