On Wednesday 7th November, our girls' fitness group is opening its doors to any females in our girls lives. From Mothers to Foster parents, and any other special female relationship.

We'll all take part in some exercise which will be scaled to suit all abilities, and then we'll have breakfast together. We will begin at 7.30am and be finished by approximately 8.30am.  Please wear clothing comfortable enough to exercise in, training and some water.

Research shows that girls who have active female role models in their lives, and more likely to become and remain active throughout adolescence and adulthood. It is appreciated that not everyone will be able to make it, but if there's a possibility of being flexible with work, then please do come along. If you have other children to get ready for school, please bring them along too than miss out!

Look forward to seeing you all there!
