OLDER people at risk of injuring themselves in falls can benefit from a new exercise class.

The Steady and Strong group begins next month in Emsworth.

Jill Phipps, specialist falls prevention lead for Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, said: ‘There is good evidence that exercise reduces the risk of falls by improving strength, balance, co-ordination and confidence. The Steady and Strong classes are fun to join in and you get support and encouragement from other members.’ The class is on February 10 at the Emsworth Centre, in South Street.
