Between 8th and 31st May the Keep on Moving Shropshire Festival will see a wide range of activities happening across Shropshire to help people aged 55+ to get active and have a go at something new. The festival has been created by a partnership of Energize, Taking Part, Age UK, Shropshire Council and the NHS.  More information is available at https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/healthy-shropshire/keep-on-moving-shropshire.

Mayfair is taking part in the festival by holding a special Keep On Moving Mayfair day on Thursday 26th May.  A variety of free taster sessions will be available, allowing you to sample the different exercise classes and walks that we provide at Mayfair.  Call Mayfair on 01694 722077 to book a place on any of these FREE sessions.

We can also confirm that a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic will be provided on the same day (26th May), in the public car park opposite our Health and Wellbeing Centre, Easthope Road, Church Stretton, from 9.00am until 2pm. COVID vaccines will be available to those who are eligible, without booking.
