You’re never too old to learn something new - as members of the Golden Gang dance club in Milngavie will testify.

The dance/fitness club, which caters for over 60-year-olds, started in Milngavie in April 2012 and is run by local woman Heather Alexander.

Only four people came to the first class and now up to 45 people attend the weekly sessions.

Heather said: “I’d encourage over 60s to come along with some friends and join in for some light exercise to great music - there’s also time to catch up throughout.

“Feedback from regular participants has been extremely positive. They say the class has helped them to improve their fitness levels, health and wellbeing, and assisted with weight loss.”

The class is held on Tuesday mornings in Milngavie Town Hall and Friday mornings in St Andrew’s Church, Bearsden.
