Wymondham Learning Centre's autumn programme has a focus on health, fitness and wellbeing and includes a range of activities to promote physical exercise and activity.

It also includes the centre's regular offerings in information technology and basic skills.

The programme got off to a flying start at a family learning day at Barford Primary School on Saturday. Pirates was the theme, and it attracted more than 80 children and 50 accompanying adults. All joined in making pirate hats and treasure chests, learning to dance jigs and playing outdoor games.

The Norfolk Family Learning Team from the adult education service organised most of the activities, supporting the learning centre team and Jane Bartram, extended schools co-ordinator.

The event was the first in a series of events under the title Learning for Health that will run until December. Activities include introductory sessions in dance, running, keep-fit and recreational walking, and a gentler Extend mobility programme.

A Heartstart session will teach techniques for helping someone in a emergency until a doctor or paramedic arrives.

There's also plenty of opportunity for those who want to try out aspects of computing, including an introduction to IT, digital photography and using the internet to find information about health and wellbeing.

Another family event on the Monday of half- term, October 27, is a practical cookery session for adults and children.
