Community Wellbeing’s swimming group continues to be a huge success for service users of The Kaleidoscope Plus Group

The swimming group is ideal if you want to start being more active and stay healthy as swimming is a great form of all-round exercise whatever your age or ability. Regular swimming can reduce the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease and type-2 diabetes and is also known to boost mood and keep weight under control.

Julie Clift has been attending our swimming group since it was launched in September and it is her favourite therapeutic exercise group as it has helped her become more relaxed.

She said “I feel mentally and physically better after attending the swimming group.

“It has helped my diabetes as my blood sugars have become lower since started swimming.

“The group was a breath of fresh air when I first attended the service but has also allowed me to meet new people and make friends”

The swimming group will run every Tuesday by Gavin and Heidi at West Bromwich Leisure Centre from 3:30pm. Sessions are £3.80 or free if you are in receipt of certain benefits.
