Fylde Council’s Sports Development team is urging residents of all ages across Fylde to get up, get out and get active this Autumn.

The theme for the third week of the ‘Let’s Feel Good Fylde’ campaign is ‘age is just a number’, which aims to highlight all the amazing groups and facilities that can be accessed and enjoyed by older people across the borough.

From walking groups and the Community Gardening Hub at Park View Park to Chair Yoga, Ian Brookes, Sports Development Officer at Fylde Council wants everyone to know that there are lots of options when it comes to getting fit.

He said: “After nearly two years of being stuck indoors and feeling isolated we want to highlight all the amazing places and great activities available for people here in Fylde.

“Our online Sports Directory and Weekly Timetable is packed with ideas and suggestions for people that want to get back into fitness or want to broaden their fitness horizons.

“You don’t have to take part in a high intensity exercise programme or sprint down the seafront to get your daily dose of exercise, and we want to make sport as accessible as we can for everyone.

“For example, the Walk and Talk group that meets each Tuesday means people can build their fitness levels and make new friends at the same time and Chair Yoga, which takes place on a Thursday at Lytham Tennis Club, is perfect for anyone with any mobility issues.

“For green-fingered Fylde residents, whether you are a seasoned gardening pro or a beginner, the community gardening hub is available every Monday at the Kitchen Garden at Lytham’s Park View.

“Let’s not forget that we have so many gorgeous parks, gardens, green spaces and the beach for people who just want to take everything at their own pace.

“The leaves are starting to turn and Fylde will soon be alive with stunning autumn colour, so what better time to get out and about?”
