Forever Active Cambridgeshire
Dear [subscriber:firstname | default:subscriber],

The first step in easing the UK's lockdown has begun, with millions of children now back at school.

Light at the end of the tunnel

We certainly have a long way to go. Still, the Government's road map out of lockdown has allowed us to start planning our class programme's re-opening. In March 2020, we had to close 70+ sessions, and it will take us time to re-open classes in a phased approach. A lot will depend on instructors' availability and each venue's suitability to provide a safe environment and enough space to run a viable class.

Outdoor excercise

Outdoor exercise and sports sessions will re-open first, starting with

  • Walking netball - Milton re-start 29th March
  • Walking netball - Histon re-start 5th April
  • Outdoor Strength and Balance - Trumpington will re-start 14th April
If we get the go-ahead from the Government, the date that indoor classes can re-open is the week beginning 17th May. Our planning has started, and we hope to re-open as many classes as we can between 17th May and 31st July. We will contact you about your previous class/es as soon as we have everything in place.
We understand that not everybody will be ready to return to face-to-face classes, but we look forward to welcoming you back when you are.

Clubz Update

We now have over 200 members signed up to Forever Active Clubz, our new information system. Although we have been in lockdown, many members have been accessing our weekly online sessions. We have listened to our members about the dates when payment requests are made, and we have updated the system to reflect this. If you owe £8 or more, your payment request will be made after 30 days. If you owe less than £8, your payment request will be made after 60 days. If you have any questions about payment amounts and dates, please email

In the spotlight: Online Chair-based Yoga – Every Friday 11.15-12.15pm with Sabrina

Would you like to release tight muscles, strengthen your back, and clear your mind? As you concentrate on combining slow breathing with a series of postures, the class becomes your 'me time', helping you connect with your breath and clear your mind of any thoughts that might weigh on it or cause distraction. Mind, body, and breath work as one to create a mindful practice that will strengthen your body and focus your mind.

As one of our members said:

'"Every Friday, I look forward to my chair-based yoga. It has so many benefits. It helps my memory, my posture, my breathing, and it helps me to keep active. I live alone, so I look forward to seeing and hearing from the other participants. I have been doing yoga off and on for many years, and Sabrina is the best teacher I've ever had. She explains in detail every posture, what it is doing for us and makes sure we are doing it properly to the best we can.
If I miss a class, I really feel it as I stiffen up. I'm so grateful that forever active set up this zoom class as I dread to think what state my mind and body would be in without it. It has really helped me during this pandemic. Many thanks."
