Healthy Brockley

The Brockley Bowling Green is the starting point for both gentle and vigorous exercise programmes this weekend. Choose your path...


The Francis Drake Bowls Club's home ground is the Hilly Fields theatre of dreams. They are always looking for new members, of any standard and their new website provides a comprehensive run-down of fixtures and club news.


This Saturday will see the launch of Brockley's OpenGym, a series of outdoor fitness sessions run by a local trainer, which uses Brockley's green spaces to help you get fit. As anyone who did the fun run can tell you, Hilly Fields is a challenging terrain.

The sessions will be run by Jo Hill, a qualified fitness instructor, who was inspired by SE4 to create OpenGym. She explains:

"The idea is to provide fitness sessions in Hilly Fields – a fun and local way to exercise which is much nicer than slogging away on a sweaty old treadmill! The first OpenGym class is on Saturday and I will be running them every Sat and Wed from now on. We will meet by the bowling green."

Classes start from £7.50 and full details can be found at the OpenGym website.
