Your lifestyle can have an emotional as well as physical impact in different ways; how we live our lives...do we exercise, do we eat a healthy diet, do we feel good about ourselves?
You deserve to feel good about yourself and there are so many changes, some of them very small that can make a big difference. These could be anything from adding an extra vegetable at meal times or walking instead of using the bus or car. Take the children to park and treat yourself to some relaxation time. The list is endless!
Here at St George's we try to encompass all of this by offering a variety of groups/classes and events that you can take part in. Most of these are free or have a minimal charge. Please have a look at what’s on and see if there is anything you would like to join. If what you are looking for isn’t there please tell us, we are always happy to listen.
Remember you are important and so is your lifestyle. The stronger you feel emotionally as well as physically the better prepared you are to take on the many challenges that life may throw at you.

Golden Oldie Gardeners
This new group is about socialising more than anything! There will be tea, biscuits, chatting and of course gardening BUT you don’t have to be an expert gardener, just willing to have a go!
Sheila has been volunteering with us for over a year and has turned the allotment around from an overgrown weed riddled eyesore to a place of beauty with flowers blooming, vegetables growing and even an herb garden!
If you’d like to join her and be one of the new Golden Oldie Gardeners you can come along anytime on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
Pilates can improve posture and flexibility. It strengthens abdominal and back muscles and can help to reduce stress. The class is suitable for everyone, no aerobics involved!
The class is weekly on Monday's 1.15pm-2.15pm and costs £4pp. We provide mats if you don’t have your own.
Cycling for All
This is a cycling session with a difference! If you haven’t ridden a bike for a long time or have limited mobility this could be for you. We have trikes, quad, a hand bike and even a bike that can hold a wheelchair. There really is something for everyone. The sessions are held at Thornes Park Athletic Stadium on Monday's 10am-11.45am (there is a small charge).
We ride inside when the weather is bad and outside on the track during summer.

This is a seated team game and is suitable for anyone.
It’s great fun so why not come along & bring a friend - or make some new ones!

Urology Cancer Support Group
We offer informal friendly and mutual advice to patients, their partners and carers. Opportunities to discuss and share their experiences. A buddy system for one to one support. We welcome visiting health professionals to talk about their area of expertise signposting to other organisations that can help.
Please enquire for meeting dates and times.

Our Dementia Café provides a safe, comfortable and supportive environment for people with dementia and their carers to socialise.
As well as offering a range of fun and engaging activities, Dementia Cafés give both carers and people with dementia a chance to get information and advice and talk to others with similar problems.
These regular social groups improve wellbeing and reduce isolation for whole families. New friendships are often formed and people who attend can leave the sessions feeling like they have a better quality of life.
