A PILATES group is set to hold a Covid-safe session in the great outdoors to start the new month.

The session will be hosted by Mainly Pilates as a way of raising funds for the Oswestry and Borders Foodbank and will be held at Ellesmere Bowling Club on Thursday, April 1 between 7-8pm.

A spokesman for the group said: "Let’s move out of lockdown with a bang.

"Our first Pilates session will still be a Thursday Night Live – but really, really live!

"A sunset, Covid-safe pilates session at Ellesmere’s highest point with 360 degree views across Shropshire, our Mere, and the Welsh Marches.

"It won’t cost you a penny – but please bring as big a donation of food as you can manage for our wonderful foodbank who have been doing a terrific job feeding approximately 4,300 homes during lockdown.


"People who, otherwise, would certainly go very hungry, and not be able to manage.

"There is a maximum of 29 places, so early booking is essential. Wear trainers, layers of stretchy clothing, and bring a warm drink, and your own mat."
