Local community partners supporting wellness: Cobham Community Gym

Together with Cobham Centre for the Community, we are working to create a healthier, well population in Surrey Downs, through our Pulling Together programme.

Working in partnership, we have pulled together to arrange and deliver transformative physical activity classes for our residents who are local to Cobham.

The centre set-out to increase opportunities for residents to engage in physical activity through relationships with Chelsea Foundation and a local yoga instructor from Lumi Foundation, to arrange weekly classes at the centre, explains Mark Mortimer Cleevely, a Senior Manager for Cobham Centre for the Community, in our short video.

It’s not about how many people you see, its about the impact you make on those individuals.

Gareth Davies, Chelsea Foundation’s Social Inclusion Manager


Chelsea Foundation’s Social Inclusion Manager, Gareth Davies, notes how the regular classes help with both fitness and confidence for people who may not otherwise be very active.

We can’t underestimate the impact these classes make in helping people achieve confidence and fitness, as we hear from one regular yoga attendee, who shares how she has reduced her pain and made a huge difference in her life.
