What does the scheme consist of?

Wrexham Council’s Active Wrexham team has been given a grant by Sports Wales as part of the Healthy Weight Healthy Wales Action Plan.

The 60+ sessions will enable the 60+ population in Wales to live longer, better and happier lives by improving their physical activity levels, confidence, strength and balance.

The Active Wrexham team alongside Freedom Leisure and Plas Madoc Leisure Centre are committed to ensuring our senior population in Wrexham maintain a healthier lifestyle.

These sessions will be delivered at Wrexham Waterworld Leisure Centre, Queensway Stadium, Gwyn Evans Leisure and Activity Centre, Chirk Leisure and Activity Centre and Plas Madoc Leisure Centre as well as a selection of online sessions via Zoom.
