Falls Prevention Services with Everyone Health – an invitation to a one session event.
As one of the largest causes of serious injuries among the older population of the UK, helping to prevent falls is one of Everyone Health’s primary concerns. Not only do falls cause a large number of injuries to older people, but they also act as a barrier, stopping people from maintaining their independence.
We know from the experience of some of our members that falls can have uncomfortable medium to long term effects on our health and activity. As we get older our bone structure and density weakens – we don’t ‘bounce back’ like younger people do!
Ben Middleton the Programme Leader (Falls and PAS) is offering a talk about Falls Prevention together with a short practical demonstration of some strength and balance exercises that can help.
Date: To be confirmed late July
Register interest by signing up at the June 12th monthly meeting or contacting David Rose.

A brief study of two Nottinghamshire born writers Alan Sillitoe and DH Lawrence
Alan Sillitoe was a Nottingham born English writer and one of the so-called “angry young men” of the 1950s. He disliked the label, as did most of the other writers to whom it was applied. He is best known for his debut novel Saturday Night and Sunday Morning and his early short story The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner, both of which were adapted into films.
David Herbert Lawrence was an English writer and poet. His collected works represent, among other things, an extended reflection upon the dehumanising effects of modernity and industrialisation. Some of the issues Lawrence explores are sexuality, emotional health, vitality, spontaneity, and instinct.
There are three sessions planned of two hours each 10am to 12noon John Godber Centre, Byron Suite. The format will be :Introduction, view the film, discussion.
Session 1: Tuesday 26th February, 2019
