Verdon Recreation Centre invited residents to try the many affordable activities provided at the centre on 10th September.
Many groups use the centre to provide activities for the community, including Pilsung Taekwondo club, Verdon Agewell group, PITS parents group, Activity Sheffield and Sheffield Futures.
Verdon Agewell group, established in 1991, encourages elderly people to be more active in their daily life by doing crafts such as knitting and designing bags. The Agewell participant’s passion for crafts – from the youngest at 51 to the oldest at 93 – is evidenced by the craft items they displayed.
Slide presentations by young people based at Osgathorpe pavilion showed activities and courses young people would like to see at Verdon Rec.
MC Nige, who runs PITS' street-dance on Wednesdays, demonstrated dance skills including body-popping.
People enjoyed the music, drinks and especially the cakes.
