Calendar of Events

Club night is held on the second Thursday of each month except in January and August.

Meetings commence at 7pm at Holtwhites Sports & Social Club; each month our chosen speaker has one hour for their talk and to answer questions. Refreshments are then available from around 8pm followed by Group business. Meetings end at approximately 9pm.

‘I would suggest that anyone who has had a heart problem and has been through rehab contact Heart throbs to continue their exercise.  Ten years ago, when I was 70, I had 2 stents fitted and was advised to follow up exercising which I did, and have not looked back. I go twice a week and enjoy the company and new friends that I have made. My husband and I also find the monthly meetings quite interesting’.  Sylvia

‘I feel much better after the exercise & I enjoy the company’  Dennis, who had 3 stents fitted in 2009
