60 Plus

2 Weeks of activities FREE of charge followed by 14 weeks at only £3 per session. Starting April 2022 – 31 March 31, 2023

Following on from our successful Active Leisure Scheme last year, we are now offering NEW participants an opportunity to get active to help boost physical and mental health.

The Active Wrexham Team have been given a grant by Sports Wales as part of the Healthy Weight Healthy Wales Action Plan. The 60+ sessions will enable the 60 Plus population in Wales to live longer, better and happier lives by improving their physical activity levels, confidence, strength and balance.
