BURTON Albion Community Trust has recently launched a new facility at Highwood court in Uttoxeter.
The facility, operated in partnership with housing charity Trent & Dove and the Primary Care Network (PCN), will be used to operate numerous health sessions as BACT expands its provisions in the Uttoxeter area of East Staffordshire.
Stretch and Tone, a gentle seated exercise session, which already takes place on a Tuesday in the North Bar (Vera Goode Suite) at the Pirelli Stadium, is expanding to the Highwood Court facility, as well as the OASIS musculoskeletal project, operated on a GP referral basis.
On offer on opening day was Trent &Dove’s Coffee Connect Project, providing free refreshments, a smoothie bike, Table tennis, arts & crafts and much more.
Amy Lewis, BACT Health and Wellbeing Community Team Leader said: “It was lovely to see so many partners and local people of the community attend the Highwood Court Open Day. We are really looking forward to using the venue for our programmes and expanding provisions in the Uttoxeter area.”
Christine Bettson, Trent & Dove Befriending and Wellbeing Officer said: “What a wonderful day and the weather was a huge plus too. We are delighted to partner with BACT and the PCN to launch his facility to hopefully help as many people as we possibly can.”
