Exercise and Diabetes evening

The evening's talk, held in Maesgwyn Hall, was led by  Joanna Hughes of WCBC, Claire Sutcliffe of time2train and Dr Anne Brenchley of Active Woods who  talked to the group on the benefits of exercise outside of an indoor gym.

Joanna is actively involved in the National Exercise Referral scheme. To  become involved with this it needs a referral from your GP.

Claire Sutcliffe organises the Woodland gym sessions held in Maes Y Pant, Gresford.

Dr Anne Brenchly represented Active Woods and explained about all the various walks taking place in the county.

They suggested suitable ideas to help with fitness, maintaining flexibilty and promoting a healthy lifestyle. The group were happy to try out a few exercises with specialised equipment which introduced an element of mirth into the night's proceedings.

The ideas and situations were well received and gave members food for thought as Spring emerges.

The meeting closed after a question and answer session, the draw with a choice from 3 prizes and finally after light refreshments.
