A REFERRAL based strength and balance class at a Redditch Extra Care Housing Scheme has proved extremely popular with tenants.

The class at St David’s House in Batchley began on January 11 and takes place at 3.30pm every Friday.

As the class has been so popular the instructor is now keen to carry on working with the group and is encouraging anyone else who might be interested to join.

The sessions, run by a Level 4 qualified instructor, aim to help people to keep mobile and independent for longer as well as being a fun, social activity.

Liz Griffiths, manager at St David’s House, said: “It is great to see our tenants’ confidence grow week on week.

"I have a wonderful sense of job satisfaction from watching all of the tenants improve whilst really enjoying themselves."
