The ‘Everyday Activ Ipswich’ initiative, run by ActivLives and supported by Ipswich Borough Council, is aimed at getting more of us active and it seems to be working!

Kurling is just one of the many inclusive sports activities on the ‘Everyday Activ’ programme!

“We already have a variety of activities on our weekly programme including walking football, boccia, new age kurling, ping pong, badminton and yoga”, said Mike McCarthy, from ActivLives. “The sessions are very sociable and great fun, that’s the whole point really, it’s the social element that keeps people coming back! Most, although not all, of the participants on the programme are over the age of 55, some are into their 70’s and 80’s. It really is brilliant to see.”
The new sessions, which will all be starting in November in Ipswich, include a new kurling group, an additional yoga class for beginners and an exercise class with a difference.
