Over 50s Group

The Millan Centre's Over 50s Group has been running for about 15 years. It is the most successfully run group with up to 30 women attending each session. The group now runs a four hour session per week on a Wednesday.  The session includes a exercise class and the ladies participate in various activities such as knitting, arts & crafts & safety sessions. They have also been on trips to York, White Rose Shopping Centre, Blackpool & Bradford industrial Museum.  The group has also participated in Neighbourhood Forums, AGMs (Annual General Meetings) and has campaigned successfully in the past to keep the Millan Centre open.

Snacks & lunch is provided at £3.50, we serve healthy food.  Our aim is to encourage women to eat healthier food which will enable them to improve their health.The women are offered jacket potatoes, fish, fruit and salad to their diet.

The group has taken part in various activities and tasks such as, English classes, I.T. classes, Recycle Project, knitting, exercise sessions, healthy eating, socialising and discussions on various topics such as health and nutrition. The activities allow the women to learn new skills as well as being able to socialise with one another.

The group has also had information on health such as diabetes and other long term medical conditions via talks from health professionals. This enables the women to gain knowledge on topics that may concern them and improve their general health.

If you or someone you know have any suggestions of a healthy recipe for our Over 50s Group Menu, then please send it to Zubeda at the Millan Centre.

Quotes from the over 50s group

"My name is Zo Jan. I've been coming to the group for about 12-14 years. I take part in the activities and I like doing knitting. I enjoy being together with other ladies. In the future, I would like to see more activities. "

"My name is Tasneem Kausar. I have been coming to the group for about 3 years. I have taken part in knitting, exercise, computer classes and discussions. The thing I enjoy the most about the group is the gathering and talking to ladies. I will encourage others to come as we enjoy ourselves. The talks and activities like English and the Computer classes were really good."
