Dance and singing on cards for Walton thanks to programme extension

Wetherby in Support of the Elderly (WiSE) is bringing its popular events programme to Walton, as it further extends the reach of its award winning work.

Over 60s will be able to twist, shout and sing thanks to the varied programme of isolation busting activities- from a dance-based exercise class to a professionally led singing group.

WiSE says the new events timetable for Walton represents the latest step in its mission to help more people alongside its existing programmes in other areas.

WiSE activities coordinator, Debbie, said: “One of our big missions as a charity emerging from the pandemic has been to extend the reach of our work beyond our traditional heartlands. The reality for many older people is that they are extremely isolated, so often the best solution is to bring events to their doorstep.

“Walton has a great venue in the shape of its village hall and after two successful coffee mornings there, it felt like the ideal next stop for are very popular events programme.”

Dance based exercise class ‘Move & Groove’ takes place every Wednesday, 1pm to 2.30pm, from 2 March.

Singing group WiSE Warblers takes place monthly, 10.30am to 12.30pm, from Wednesday 9 March. The sessions will be led by singers Liz and Reggie from Singtasia.

Monthly coffee mornings take place on the first Monday of every month, 10am to 12pm, starting on 7 March.

All events take place at Walton Village Hall. Transport is available by emailing transport@w-ise.org.uk or by phoning 01937 222066.
