Activities in the Vale of Glamorgan

by Editor

The Vale of Glamorgan Council’s Healthy Living Team have compiled a table to show the residents of the Vale what activities are available to them in their local community. Physical and Mental Health are just two of the benefits of staying active as well as reducing the risk of health conditions. The Table shows a wide range of activities that older people can enjoy in their local Community Centres as well as other venues, these include Zumba Gold, Tai Chi, Tea Dances and many more, attending these sessions can help contribute towards the recommended level of 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week set by the NHS. If you are interested in attending any of the activities please get in contact with the organisers or feel free to contact the Councils Healthy Living Team on 01446 704793
