A new exercise class for people aged over 60 has been launched in Portishead.

Age UK Somerset has started running Extend Movement To Music classes at Avon Way Hall in Avon Way from 11.45am-12.45pm every Monday.

The sessions will involve gentle aerobic exercise, both seated and standing.

The exercises are all to music with choreographed dance moves and the emphasis is on having fun rather than keeping up.

An Age UK spokesman said: “The sessions, which are part of the charity’s Ageing Well service, will be run by a fully trained but friendly instructor and promises to be great for staying in shape, improving mobility and posture, and general well-being.

“Not only will you look forward to coming each week, you might enjoy meeting new people too.”

Each session is priced £4 on a pay-as-you-go basis.
