Engrossed: Tatura Men’s Shed members listen intently to guest speaker Alan Bull.


Mr Bull suggested members should be active everyday in as many ways as they could.

‘‘Older people should do some form of physical activity, no matter what their age, weight, health problems or abilities,’’ he said.

‘‘You can benefit with improved health and we (COTA) can help you.’’

Mr Bull said COTA could provide information sessions and interactive discussions about how members of the group could enjoy the benefits of being more physically active.

‘‘Older people who are regular participants, share their stories and dispel some of the myths about strength training and physical activity,’’ he said.

Mr Bull was keen to hear from members about what physical activities — ranging from sport, cycling, walking or gardening — they undertook, with most happy to join in the conversation.
