TAI chi experts have visited a group aimed at helping people become more active.

Stanley’s Movers and Shakers group is aimed at improving people’s health and wellbeing though light exercise and support in managing weight loss.

It meets every Thursday, from 1.30pm to 3.30pm in Stanley Masonic Hall, off Front Street.

This week demonstrators from Newcastle Healthy Living Centre gave a tai chi swords and fans demonstration, before teaching the group a routine.

Lead volunteer Lyn Boyd said: “The session was very enjoyable and informative. Everyone had a great time performing the different exercises as part of the routine.”

Everyone is welcome. The first session is free and subsequent ones are £2. For more details call 07845 572372 or massstanley18@gmail.com.
