We are currently unable to offer in-person classes in community centres and retirement homes because of the pandemic restrictions. However, we have a great line-up of classes you can take using Zoom.   Classes are offered free to residents of Peterborough County who are +55 years.  Donations to Community Care are most welcome.

 

  • Good For You! Exercise at Home Brochure
  • Pole Walking
    Walking poles help many people walk more comfortably because they take some of the strain off lower back, hips, knees and ankles. We have some good quality poles for sale. If you'd like help selecting the right ones and purchasing a pair, please contact Sheila through this link here.

We love seeing you in our classes and hope you enjoy the many benefits.  We offer these free classes to everyone +55 years throughout the City and County of Peterborough and we gratefully accept donations so that we may continue to do that.
