The Zumba will go on …

Last March, Big Local SW11 funded a 10 weeks of Zumba Class through Enable.
In Fact, Marinel,  the lady who runs it delivered 20 sessions instead of 10, delivering Zumba twice a week in the Pennethorne Club Room.

The class was very well attended, and everyone wanted to continue the class even though the funding has run out. I have to say, that Marinel’s positivity and enthusiasm made this class a success.

The Zumba classes have been a great success. With Big Local funding, the Penethorne Residents Association and Katherine Low Settlement started up a women’s fitness group in Pennethorne House on Wenesday mornings from 10am – 11am, specifically aimed at mums from ethnic minorities who didn’t do much exercise previously. Flyers were distributed and members of local mothers groups were encouraged to come. Turnout from the start was excellent, and they were so keen that the class also runs on Tuesday mornings, for no extra cost, with an equally high and consistent attendance rate. The women will now be paying for the course themselves and so the project will be sustained in the long-term and provide the on-going health benefits. All attendees are from the Big Local Area.
