New activities at POPPIES, St Leonards Bootle

Bob Campbell, Older Person’s Worker at St Leonard’s Youth and Community Centre in Bootle, has been in touch to tell us about some new activities at the centre. The POPPIES group (it stands for Promoting Older People’s Pastimes, Information, Education and Socialising) used a HOP Pot grant to make trips out to Dunham Massey and St George’s Hall before Christmas, and will be making another trip out to Rufford Hall on 27th May.

At the St Leonards Centre, there’s ladies indoor bowls starting Wed 6th May at 1pm to 2pm, and Zumba Gold starting from Thursday 14th May at 2.30pm. Also coming soon there will be Tai Chi on Wednesdays at 10.30am.

The Poppies group are having a reminiscence session next Tuesday at 1.30pm themed around local history and the overhead railway.

If you want to find out more, contact details for Bob can be found on the centre’s website here.
