“We want all our residents, including those aged 50 and over, to get the most out of life. We are encouraging people to keep fit and healthy by providing leisure services that they will find useful and appealing.”
“If you are over 50 and would like more sessions for your favourite sport or fitness class, or would like to suggest a completely new activity, please let us know.”
The questionnaire runs until 1st April and can be completed online at http://tinyurl.com/RSLExercise, at Reading Libraries or at the following leisure centres:
