On Friday 26th, June 2015, Silverfit launched its newest addition to their Silver Days at Broomfield Park, Enfield. The event was attended by the local community of Palmers Green and several guests of honour including Steve Trew, one of the best known names in World Triathlon as a coach, race commentator, journalist and novelist. Other guests of honour included Jacqui Bainbridge, Head of Service from Christian Action Enfield.
To kick off the launch a welcome speech was given by Steve Trew. Steve, a local Enfield resident, said, “ I am delighted to be here today. We are in a new age of ageing; lives and expectations have changed massively and getting older now is a new beginning . There is a life beyond retirement and opportunities to enjoy new activities. It’s great that Silverfit offers a choice of activities. Keep moving and don't focus on activities you don't really enjoy doing. Just do whatever you do, and make sure you enjoy doing it then you are much more likely to continue in an active lifestyle. Keep Silverfit for life!”
Following the speech, guests were treated to a free class of Latin American Dance or Nordic Walking or a guided walk in Broomfield Park. In keeping with Silverfit’s belief of social interaction, guests were treated to tea, coffee and refreshments after the activities.
With the launch of Silver Fridays at Broomfield Park, the local community can now benefit from the Silverfit sessions, which are already being enjoyed in 7 other London locations. Every Friday participants will be able to choose from various activities, including Latin American Dance and Nordic Walking, to get fit under the guidance of fully qualified instructors. Not only will participants reap the benefits of physical activity but they can also enjoy the camaraderie of being with people at a similar level of fitness who are also neighbours in the area.

Our CEO Eddie Brocklesby was invited as a guest of Millwall for All's to a choral evensong in commemoration of Thomas Cure, one of the founding governors of Southwark. His tomb still lies in the Cathedral which is beautifully decorated. Thomas Cure founded the wonderful United St Saviour's Charity who were founded in 1541 with an aim to benefit the less fortunate of the St Savior's Parish which is now known as Southwark Cathedral. Eddie: "It was great to meet so many others involved in charitable work within Southwark, and appreciate the importance of working together towards our Silverfit aim of increased fitness, happiness and fun for older people in Southwark."
If you like walking football why don't you join our weekly Walking Football session which we run in collaboration with Millwall at The Den on Zampa Road (SE16). We meet every Friday at 11am.
