New outdoor activity classes launched to help get people moving in Withernsea

Wed, 21 Apr 2021

A series of fun, outdoor activity classes will be launched in Withernsea this month to help get more people in the community moving again as we come out of lockdown.

The classes, which will adhere to current COVID-19 safety measures, will be delivered in partnership between Active Withernsea and East Riding Leisure Withernsea.

The activity classes are aimed at all levels of ability, whether you're a beginner or looking to try out new healthier activities.

The programme will offer different classes for different ages, including sessions for young people, adults and families.

As well as providing an opportunity to improve people's health, it's a great chance to enjoy activities with friends and family, or even make a new friend or two. The Memorial Gardens will play host to the classes and will provide a nice setting in a socially-distanced outdoor green space.

Emma Kelly, development and implementation lead for Active Withernsea, said: "We are really excited to be launching a programme of outdoor activities.

"The sessions will help the community rediscover the benefits of healthy activity and the classes will provide a fun and safe environment for people of all abilities to enjoy activity as we move out of lockdown."

Lou Adams, group manager for health and wellbeing at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "The Active Withernsea outdoor classes provide a great opportunity for more people to get moving and help improve health and wellbeing.

"Coming out of lockdown it's a chance for people to take part in a safe and socially-distanced activity during what we hope will be nice weather."

The classes will begin the week commencing Monday, 26 April.

Family sessions take place on Mondays and Thursdays at 5pm, the junior sessions take place on Mondays and Thursdays at 4pm and the adult sessions take place on Mondays at 6pm and Fridays at 10am.

Each activity session will last 50 minutes and will cost £2 per adult and £1 per child. The timetable can be viewed online to find the class timings.

Bookings for the Active Withernsea classes will need to be made in advance and can be made up to 24 hours before the session takes place.
