Pilates Classes

Lisburn Outlook has organised six sessions of Pilates classes for our members, to be held from the first Friday in September from 9.30 to 10.30am. We’re hoping this will give confidence for members to be able to try these sessions and maybe the confidence to try other activities, or continue with the mainstream Leisureplex Pilates classes.

If you are interested please let Lisburn Outlook know as soon as possible on 07766 302496 or via lisburnoutlook@gmail.comas numbers are limited because of the size of the room.  There will be no charge for these classes, so why not come along and find out what Pilates is all about.  More information will be forwarded soon when numbers are taken and places filled.

Join the Folks on the Hill!

Parliament Buildings at Stormont is steeped in history.  It doesn’t matter what you may think of the politicians who are supposed to work there at the moment, you will still be fascinated by the stories behind this imposing edifice, and its marble, wood, chandeliers and other embellishments.  Come with Lisburn Outlook for a guided tour starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, 19th  September.  Transport to and from Stormont will be arranged.

To book your place, please contact Audrey on 028 9266 0402 or 07470 241128, or via lisburnoutlook@gmail.com

Walking Group News

Our Walking Group meets twice a month at 10.30am on Tuesdays for local Lisburn walks.   For our first walk on 4th September we plan to travel to Hillsborough Forest Park, meeting at Lisburn bus station at 10.20 to catch the No.38 bus at 10.30.

Our second walk will be on Tuesday 18thSeptember when we will meet at Lisburn Civic Centre to walk along the tow-path.

 more opportunities to walk…

An informal walking group of blind and partially sighted people and volunteer sighted guides meets in Belfast on the first and third Thursday of each month.  Walks are usually of around three or four miles, and do not include any very difficult terrain.  They are followed by lunch.  Exact details vary from one walk to another but people usually meet at Belfast Central station.

Members of the Lisburn Outlook walking group would be welcome to join the Belfast group.  We would need to ensure that we were self-sufficient in terms of bringing an adequate number of sighted guides with us.

To find out what walks are coming up, please contact Katy Leach or David Mann.


Our Saturday morning tandem sessions continue this month but the Thursday evening sessions will finish around the middle of the month as the evenings draw in.

We start and finish our sessions at the Leisure Centreand our routes may take us along the Lagan towpath or through the rural roads of the Lisburn countryside. If you are interested in attending, please contact Paul on 07889 749992.
