Active Invitation

LEISURE centres are offering events for the over 50s this month to celebrate an Older People's Festival.

Temple Park Centre, South Shields, has swimming and gym sessions for just pounds 1 in October.

Hebburn swimming pool is also offering swimming and gym classes as well as aquafit sessions.

The activities at Monkton Stadium include gym and a Bodyblast fitness class.

Coun Tracey Dixon, South Tyneside's lead member for culture and well-being, said: "We have a range of discounted offers for October. I hope our older residents sample some of the many healthy activities available in our borough."
