A MEN’S cookery course is among new activities coming to the Dingemans Centre in Steyning.
The New Gourmet Geezers’ Cookery Club is a course especially for men aged over 55 who would like to cook healthy meals and snacks on a budget.
The group will learn how to cook a meal, then enjoy the fruits of their labours together at the end of each session.
Donna Bailey, older people’s service manager, said: “This new course welcomes any man over the age of 55 who has an interest in food and cooking.”
The 10-week course starts on Tuesday, September 10, at the centre, in Dengemans Court.
The cost is £5 per session. Contact the centre on 01903 879297 for more information.
Another new activity launching at Dingemans is Nia dance classes.
The fitness sessions are suitable for anybody, regardless of age, size or ability.
Based on 52 moves drawn from dance, martial and healing arts, Nia is set to music and helps improve fitness, wellbeing, balance and mobility.
The classes for the over-55s will be held at the centre every Thursday from today, 11am to midday, and cost £4 per class.
Additional Nia classes are available every Thursday from today at the Upper Beeding Sports Hall, on the recreation ground, 9.30am to 10.30am.
Nia teacher Helena Dodds said: “Nia is the kind of exercise your body will love. Each session is individual, varied and fun.”
