Live Well in Worthing success

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon for South Down Leisure ‘Live Well Worthing’ for the over 50s. Held at Field Place, a stunning location in the town, the event was fully inclusive and well attended.

The event was opened by Worthing Mayor, Cllr Alex Harman, who was welcomed in by the Town Crier, Bob Smytherman and Tim Wilkins from the Alzheimer’s Society.

The afternoon started with outdoor Tai Chi on the lawns in the shade. On the tennis courts, Colin was helping people get to grips with the ball machine – and it didn’t take long before both the Town Crier and the Mayor decided to try their hand. There was table tennis and bowls on offer, pilates, meditation, croquet and petanque. Indoors people took advantage of having their hearing checked or a mini-health assessment in a totally relaxed atmosphere.

Local charities, such as Guild Care, came along with their service users and we were delighted that people with dementia took the opportunity to try out a few activities and have lots of fun with their support workers.
