Last week 50 members came to Augustus Place Hall to watch and listen to Yvonne, a Clinical Falls Practitioner and Andrew who demonstrated exercises. Yvonne asked who had fallen over in the last 12 months.

She gave members a leaflet to identify faults in our homes and spoke of ways to make them safe. Andrew and Yvonne demonstrated how to get up from a fall, even to using cushions to pile up one at a time to lift yourself to a chair height.

Andrew showed members leg strengthening exercises, such as raising your toes, and then your heels, one leg stands etc. The Club members appreciated the knowledge given to them.

Yvonne is on email at: [email protected]

A raffle for Ukraine raised £260. The committee would like to thank all members for their generosity.

The next meeting is a talk by Judith Morgan of the Salvation Army on March 23, at 2 pm.
