BOTH my husband and I are members of the Jubilee Centre in Bury and, along with friends - many of whom we have met there - enjoy the many activities and facilities provided for the over-50s.

These activities help to keep both mind and body active, and cater for both able-bodied and disabled people.

The centre also has a cafe where we are able to enjoy a meal or snack in a friendly atmosphere in pleasant surroundings. All activities are well attended; line dancing on Fridays, for instance, has between 50 and 60 attending.

Having seen the plans for the new extension, I feel sure that the proposed landscaping will enhance the surrounding area and, far from spoiling it, will be a definite improvement.

I can only say to readers who haven't yet been to the centre: go along, you will be made most welcome.
