ZUMBA Gold classes for beginners and older adults have started in the parish hall.

The classes are on Wednesday at 1pm with funding from South Somerset District Council.

Sam Wenden-de-Lira, the authority’s healthy lifestyles officer, said: “Following a meeting with health trainers, it became apparent that not many activity classes were aimed at beginners and older adults during the day in Ilminster.

“It was agreed that as a part of our Active Somerset programme we would fill this gap with a Zumba Gold class.”

Instructor Charlotte Bly said: “Our class is low impact, with dance routines to improve balance, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness.”
