Extra Time

Extra Time is Blackpool Football Club Community Trust programme delivered for over 55s with sessions taking place every Monday afternoon, 1:00pm – 3:00pm, at the Holy Trinity Church

The group is needs led and participants have an input on the activities they would like to be available during the sessions. Afternoons can include chair based exercise, dominoes, quizzes, trips, country themed afternoons, or simply coffee and a chat.

In the past, participants have enjoyed themed afternoons, sessions where new foods are tasted, with fact finding, quizzes and dancing all related to a foreign country, and groups visits to some of Blackpool’s famous heritage sites and attractions.

Each session costs £2 and includes light refreshments.
