Over 65s in north Norfolk can get in for free at three leisure centres next week.

Everyone Active is offering free gym or senior swim sessions from Monday, October 28 to Friday, November 1.

They are being offered in response to research commissioned by the leisure operator, which revealed that more than three quarters of over-65s do not hit the recommended weekly exercise targets advised by the NHS.

Victory Swim and Fitness Centre in North Walsham, Fakenham Sports and Fitness Centre and Splash Leisure and Fitness Centre in Sheringham will be free to over 65s from 10am to 4pm. The leisure operator is also offering its Senior Swim sessions for free during this time.

David Bibby, managing director at Everyone Active, said: "Research proves there is still a lot of work needed to improve activity levels among people aged 65 and over in the community."
