Rock climbing and swimming sessions in Flitwick have been added to a programme of healthy mind and body community activities across Bedfordshire and Luton.

The Trust has teamed up with Mind BLMK and Stevenage Leisure Ltd (SLL) to run the fun and inclusive sessions at Flitwick Leisure Centre in Steppingley Road every Friday from 3-4pm.

They are open to all, each session costs £2.50 and anyone interested in taking part can just turn up on the day.

The activities are part of the Trust’s ‘Mindful’ sessions developed with partners to provide gentle exercise, opportunities to socialise and informal, friendly NHS support and advice on maintaining mental wellbeing.

Other activities include tennis, wellbeing walks, yoga, badminton, boxercise and table tennis.

The successful initiative started in Bedford Borough in partnership with Bedford Borough Council and Mind BLMK and has now expanded across the county.

“Every session is designed to be inclusive, engaging and fun,” said Steve Muggridge, the Trust’s project lead.

“We love seeing new faces at all of our sessions, so do come and join us.”
