Closure of Council Fitness Classes at Bulwell Riverside Worries the Elderly

Posted on 16 January 2017 (Permalink)

"I am very concerned having been contacted by several constituents regarding the Councils proposal to close the fitness classes at the Riverside Centre Gym in Bulwell and at Aspley and possibly other parts of my constituency.

These classes are an essential part of their social life and well used [30 at last Bulwell session] and are especially helpful for the elderly and disabled some of whom were referred by their doctor, keeping them mobile saves massively on social care bills. A financial contribution of £4 a session per person is made.

I have contaced the Nottingham City Council and ask them about this dicision and whether we could keep those classes open." said Graham Allen MP
