You can browse our directory to see what's on offer, with sessions suitable even if you have little or no experience.

We only include approved instructors, and they are always keen to welcome new faces. Activities are sociable, friendly and informal with no pressure.

If you would like to join a class, you can contact the class instructor in the first instance.
If you are a little nervous or unsure of what to expect, the Forever Active Team can offer a buddy system. We will arrange a volunteer to meet and greet you at a class for the first time to help ease you in gently. You can contact us online or call 01245 606569 (option 4).
