The project initially started in October 2008 with 25 men which then expanded to creating a ladies group in December 2009.
The mens group takes places on a weekly basis every Tuesday morning from 10am-12 noon, The females group takes place weekly on a Wednesday morning from 10am-12 noon. The project targets over 60s and helps them to socially interact accompanied with physical activity which on a larger scale improves their quality of life. It creates an opportunity to partake in a wide and varied range of sports which members wouldn’t have had access to without Extra Time.
Occasionally both groups partake in joint activities for example Ballroom/Line Dancing, however other activities include Golf, Bowls, Horse Riding, Water Polo, Walking Football and orienteering to name but a few. Away from Extra Time, participants have organised their own weekly activity of indoor bowls which is popularly undertake.
