Music and Movement for All  

Great Britain’s successful Olympic year has inspired many people across the country to take up a sport and remain active. However, for some, this is not always possible due to age, sight or mobility problems. 
Sight Support Ryedale, a local charity which supports blind and visually impaired people living in Ryedale, is pleased to be able to offer its low impact exercise class ‘Music and Movement’ to all sighted or visually impaired members of the Ryedale community. The fitness session is one of many activities which it currently organises for its members. 
“This gentle fitness session has been a regular social activity for our sight impaired members for some years now” said Nicole Hingley, Activities Co-ordinator. “We, and our sight impaired members, believe that many other people in the wider community would also benefit from the class, therefore we have opened the sessions to the local community.” 
Ann Ruddick, Sight Support Ryedale member and regular attendee at the Music and Movement session said. "As a visually impaired person, I find it difficult to attend a mainstream exercise class, as I am not able to follow the movements of the instructor. These sessions are fantastic! Our instructor describes carefully and clearly what she wants us to do, and I’m able to follow her instructions with confidence. It allows me to move around freely, and at the end of each session I feel stimulated mentally and physically." Ann continues: "Several of our members are elderly, but the Music and Movement sessions allow them to exercise gently, which is helping them to stay mobile. Anyone looking for low-impact fitness in a friendly environment would certainly benefit from joining us. The extra bonus is that each session ends with a welcome cuppa, delicious cake and plenty of chat." 
The Music and Movement classes take place fortnightly on Tuesdays at the Parish Hall, Hallgarth, Pickering from 2.30pm until 4.00pm. The sessions, which cost £5.00, are led by a trained fitness instructor. Tea and cake are included and the lively conversation is free of charge! People of all levels of fitness are welcome whether sighted or visually impaired; for more information please contact Sight Support Ryedale by calling Tel 01653 698860 or emailing
