Have your say

ELDERLY people are being invited to attend a workshop to learn exercises to help prevent falls.

Better Balance For Life is a county-wide project. The workshop will provide simple instructions on the Better Balance For life exercises, as well as guidance on preventing falls and motivation and goal-setting with older people.

The course is free to groups working with older people in the Hampshire County Council area including voluntary, charitable and community groups, sheltered housing and extra care schemes.

The workshop will take place on Thursday at Fareham’s civic offices from 11am until 3pm. Call 01962 846605 or email to book.
