Get Going Together!

Get Going Together sessions have recently been established in Shrewsbury, enabling all adults of all abilities to try something different.

For more information see the posters below; sessions will vary throughout the year and include cycling, indoor bowls, walking and much more. Every Wednesday from 12noon to 3pm at Sundorne Sports Village in Shrewsbury, with a cost of £4.00 per session.
