PARTICIPANTS CELEBRATE CITY’S HISTORY

As part of National Local History Month, Extra Time Hub participants celebrated Sunderland’s rich cultural heritage through a programme of talks, walks, exhibitions and activities learning more about the history of their communities and city.

One of the events organised by Sunderland City Council’s Heritage team and forum was The Magical Mystery Tour. Participants travelled on a vintage Sunderland bus to visit The Ryhope Victorian Pumping Station, Bowes Railway and Sunderland Maritime Heritage.

The Hub gives me a reason to leave the house and be more sociable.  By coming to the Beacon, I have met new friends, done things which I thought I would not be able to do and more importantly has given me a more positive outlook on life.

Tom, a regular attendee to the Extra Time Hub at the Beacon of Light

Open to men and women over 50, ‘Extra Time Hubs’ is a national project supported by the EFL Trust. The weekly sessions aim to bring together retired and semi-retired people to offer a range of positive activities and the opportunity to meet and spend time with like-minded people from the area, and to prove that you’re never too old learn.

A range of activities are available as part of the project, including walking football, walking netball, seated exercise (Sit, Fit and Strong), table tennis and with ukulele playing soon being added to the programme.

Classroom-based activities are also be available, offering nutritional advice and helping to expand participants’ confidence and encourage them to embrace new cooking skills.

Nicky Maycock, Extra Time Hub Activator said “The programme has been running for a few months and the feedback we have had so far has been great.  We get new people coming every week and the sessions vary in terms of what everyone would like to do.  It’s an excellent opportunity for people to come along, try something different and meet new people.”

The sessions run every Wednesday 10am – 12 noon at the Beacon of Light priced at £3.
