The Charlton Neighbourhood House, with support from the Buloke Shire Council, were pleased to recommence a couple of our popular programs in 2024. On offer again was our Gentle Water Exercise program under the watchful direction of instructor Nicola Kirk. Participants engage in a range of various movements to music in a fun water environment. Working within your personal limits ensure that nothing to strenuous is undertaken, and everyone involved enjoys the time together very much.
Returning as well was the Water Acclimation program for preschool age children, where the young ones can gain confidence in and around water, while teaching them some safety techniques that could assist in event of a mishap. With their parents or guardians in the water with Nicola, all the children enjoy the fun games and sharing time with others.
Meanwhile our early morning swimmers have been enjoying the warmer weather and the opportunity of starting their days doing a few laps. Thanks go to the Buloke Shire for their support with opening hours and waiving fees for Lifeguards during the season. It is much appreciated by those taking part.
The gentle water exercises recommenced following the Christmas break to the most beautiful weather. This weekly class helps improve heart health and cardiovascular strength. The water pressure acts as your friend in the pool and helps circulate the blood more efficiently. Classes operate November to March.
