The annual Happy and Active in Knowle West event took place at Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) today - as part of the two week Celebrating Age festival. Organised by KWMC and Knowle West Health Park, the event was to showcase a variety of taster activities across the area for the over 55s. More than 100 people came in blazing sunshine to enjoy a singing session, tea dance and art activities as well as a digital skills class, armchair exercise and acupuncture. They were also treated to afternoon tea and home made pancakes. Thanks to all who came to enjoy a wonderful afternoon.

Thanks to everyone who made the Dot to Dot walk on Saturday so much fun. We counted up the steps recorded by everyone's pedometers during the week and calculated that Knowle West had walked 150 miles! A great end to Filwood Gets Fit.
