Come on Board

August 03 2018

Come on Board is a project born from a coming together of nine Bristol-based organisations with the shared aim of making it easy for anyone over the age of 50 in Bristol to get physically active.

Funded by Bristol Ageing Better and The Big Lottery Fund, Come on Board is made up of: Alive, All-Aboard Watersports, Avon Wildlife Trust, Bristol Community Transport, BS3 Community Development, Clifton Exercise Club, Gloucestershire Cricket Board, BS7 Gym and Lifecycle UK.

 These organisations, under the banner of Come on Board, offer a variety of physical activities free of charge to get those over the age of 50 out and about into the brilliant City of Bristol. Organisers say they firmly believe that the activities they offer not only improve health and wellbeing, lowering the risk of physical and mental illness and disease, but also directly tackle the deeper issues of social isolation and loneliness.

 The activities on offer are:


Walking cricket



Strength and conditioning Classes


Reminiscence trips (in a powerboat)

Powerboat trips


Functional fitness classes

Multi-watersport sessions

Guided walks
• Qi Gong

Zumba Gold

Gig Rowing 



Come on Board has its own website, and is also on Facebook and Twitter.
