Week beginning 18 September

 A subject that came up in conversation in class recently was when you are over 71 you no longer get automatically invited for breast screening HOWEVER you can request one. (The number to ring is 01942 774713 in our area.) I have a number of class members who have been affected by breast cancer either themselves or family members or indeed both. The sooner it is found the better the outcome. For more information go to:

71 or over? You can still have breast screening if you choose – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

When you’ll be invited for breast screening and who should go – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

Next Nordic Walking Technique course
The next Nordic Walking Technique session will be on Saturday 30 September at 1.30 p.m. in Worden Park.

No Nordic Walking on Saturday 23 September

Defibrillator training
We now have a defibrillator on the outside of Prospect House. If you would like to attend a short training session by North West Ambulance Service which I am organising please let me know. 

Relaxing in Pilates 
In our Pilates classes, we have 5 minutes of guided relaxation which is very helpful for a lot of people but 
I hope nobody thinks it is something sinister when we are relaxing in our class.  ‘Ritual mass murder’ report in Chapel St Leonards was yoga class – BBC News

Flamenco Evening in Preston
In Zumba we use music from all around the world but primarily Latin-inspired music such as salsa and merengue. I even add some flavours of flamenco to some dances. There is an opportunity to experience an evening of flamenco  music and dance in Preston at Preston Playhouse in November .
