Activities for all
At Rooftop, we offer a range of fun leisure and interest activities as part of our Support Services. Our activities are open to all in the community, residents and non-residents. The Activities for All programme provides a selection of fun activities based in local facilities that are for everyone to enjoy. Keeping fit and active is key to being healthy and well at all ages and particularly as we get older.
Below is a sample of just some of the activities we organise.
The traditional favourite! Most of our schemes offer regular bingo events.
Past speakers include a spokesperson for Dogs for the Disabled, a hand bell ringing demonstration and a reminiscence speaker.
We have regular challenges such as knitting Easter chicks and Christmas gifts , which are sold for charity.
We have a weekly line dancing class which we hold in Pershore.
In the past 12 months, organised trips have included Weston-Super-Mare, Cotswold and Burford Wildlife Parks and the National Arboretum.
We run four seated exercise classes across our schemes – these are gentle exercises for those with limited mobility or balance.
This low impact exercise is fun to do and is shown to help improve the condition of people with high blood pressure and arthritis as well as other medical and health conditions.
We organise a wide and varied range of activities including computer lessons, coffee mornings, low impact sporting events, massages and health and wellbeing sessions.
We have three regular walking groups across our schemes. These are easy walks with a walk leader and take no longer than an hour.
How much does it cost?
Some of our activities are free or funded by the Rooftop Activities for All scheme. Others may cost a nominal fee. However, we aim to keep these costs as low as possible.
