Getin2it walking football sessions

Published on Monday, 10th November 2014

There’s no reason not to enjoy the beautiful game with walking football sessions for older people launching soon at Burntwood Leisure Centre.

Walking football is kicking off at Burntwood Leisure Centre on Tuesday 18 November from 12 noon to 1pm with a free taster session.

Led by a qualified FA football coach, participants will find out how to play the game that is becoming popular with seniors.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “We are pleased to be launching walking football at Burntwood Leisure Centre. It’s a great opportunity for older people to meet others, stay active, and to play their favourite game at a more moderate pace.”

Sessions after the introductory free taster on Tuesday 18 November will take place on Tuesdays from 12noon to 1pm and will cost £2.50 each.

There is no need to book ahead, simply turn up at Burntwood Leisure Centre’s synthetic football pitch and get in to it!

Head to Museum Gardens on May Day to enjoy all the vintage activities on offer.
Lichfield District Council’s park rangers are hosting a Victorian May Day at Museum Gardens in Beacon Park on Monday 5 May, between 11am and 2pm.
The May Day celebrations will include maypole dancing workshops, a coconut shy, croquet, hoopla, a Victorian flower cone workshop and possibly Victorian swing boats.
A traditional Punch and Judy Show will also take place from 12 noon to 1pm on the day, which has been part funded by Chandlers Café.
Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said:
“We hope plenty of people join us for our Victorian May Day event, and enjoy all the activities on offer.”
Thanks to the new Decades Vintage Boutique, which is set to open on St John’s Street in June, the park rangers will be dressed in Victorian costume throughout the day.
It is free to come along to the Victorian May Day event, although there will be a small charge for some of the activities.
