They offer a secure, understanding and friendly environment for people with a visual impairment.

The clubs run daily from Monday to Thursday, hosting up to 40 people per day between 10am and 2pm. Transport is provided for those people who need it, and there’s also the option of a hot or cold meal prepared daily in the bistro.

Each workout brings mindfulness to your dance movement experience leaving you energized, mentally clear, and emotionally balanced.
Nia cardio-dance workouts combine 52 simple moves with dance arts, martial arts, and healing arts to get you fit in 60 minutes – body, mind, emotion, and spirit.

Swimming Club

This club meets at Bradbury Fields each Thursday at 10:30am. Some people come earlier and have breakfast in our Bistro!

Walking Group

2nd and 4th Sunday of the month

Do you enjoy walks in the country? Has getting out for walks become more difficult since losing your sight? If so, why not join our walking group?

Bradbury Walkers meet twice monthly and walks may vary in duration but tend to be around the 5 mile mark.

This service is provided on a one to one basis by a sighted volunteer accompanying a visually impaired person. Bradbury Fields provides the transport in their mini buses for these days out.

Over the years the walking group has also enjoyed many weekends away in Snowdonia and the Lake District.

This is a great way to meet new friends and enjoy the pleasures of the countryside as well as a healthy activity and we mustn’t forget it is also an opportunity for guide dogs to run off their excess energy and enjoy the pleasures of the countryside.

Zumba

Thursday 11:00 - 12:00

What is Zumba?
Zumba is a workout like no other! It is a Latin-inspired dance workout that has often been called ‘exercise in disguise’. We use Latin music and dance moves to create an aerobic fitness program by mixing low-intensity and high-intensity moves for an interval-style, calorie-burning dance fitness party!

Who is Zumba for?
Zumba is for all ages, dance abilities and fitness levels. You can move as fast or slow and shake as much or as little as you want. Zumba is designed to be able to be taken up or down a notch in accordance to the classes needs. One thing is for certain though… everyone comes out sweaty and smiling!!

What will I gain from Zumba?
Apart from improving fitness levels, balance, coordination, flexibility and toning your body you will most likely gain confidence and a couple of new dance routines you can whip out at the office Christmas party.
