To celebrate the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games and to allow for the older generation to feel involved, residents at Melton’s Gretton Court, Egerton View, have competed in friendly ‘Twilight Games.’

The specially adapted games organised by Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport (LRS) were aimed at assisting people with their co-ordination, concentration and mobility but above all to have fun and enjoy the social and wellbeing benefits of being active with others.

Activities residents participated in included sitting volleyball, bean bag throw, petanque, mini boccia and audio basketball.
