WESTON-SUPER-MARE folk who missed out on the first Clubbercise event run by Sweet Result Fitness will have the opportunity to get fit to 90s club classics next month (June, 2016).
Sweet Result Fitness is hosting the second Clubbercise event at Vision nightclub on Richmond Street on Friday, June 10 from 8pm until 9pm.
Mark Sweeting, Owner at Sweet Result Fitness, said: “The first of our Clubbercise events took place at Vision last month and was such a huge success that we’ve decided to host another, which is a great opportunity for anyone who missed out last time or for anyone who came along and enjoyed it so much that they wanted to give it another go.
“It is a fantastically fun event and combines an easy-to-follow workout in the darkened club complete with disco lights and glow sticks. The soundtrack to the night will be 1990s club classics, which will really get people into the spirit. It’s going to be even bigger and better than last time.
“We will have a photo booth run by our photographer Johnny Hathaway, and people will be able to purchase snapshots of the night afterwards. There will also be a DJ playing from 9pm until 11pm for anyone who wants to carry the night on.”
Tickets for the event cost £10 and are available to purchase from www.sweetresultfitness.co.uk. They are also available to collect during classes from instructors. Ticket price includes re-entry to the club after the event.

A CAR WASH that took place at a farm shop in Somerset last Saturday (May 21, 2016) raised £428.65 for the 1st Wellington Scout Group and the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
Rumwell Farm Shop and the 1st Wellington Scout Group teamed up to collect money for the charity and the scout group on Saturday, May 21.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, said: “The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance is our Charity of the Year and we were delighted that the scouts were happy to come on board for the fundraiser.
“The Scouts did a brilliant job and even though the weather was foul they soldiered on. They were all soaked by the time they were finished. Lots of people took advantage of the car wash and we were thrilled to raise such a fantastic amount of money.
“The donations collected will be split equally between the scout group and the air ambulance. The Scouts will use the money to improve their camping and activities equipment benefiting all age groups across Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.”
The car wash was held in Rumwell Farm Shop’s car park and cost £4 per vehicle.
The Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance launched in March 2000 and has flown more than 10,900 missions, many of them life-saving.
Its operational costs are more than £2 million a year and the approximate cost per mission is £2,500. With public support it is also able to purchase specialist pieces of equipment that aid its paramedics’ training and help to save lives across the two counties.
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Café, which opened in May 2015, is able to seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the café kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the café and there is a menu especially for children. The café also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages. To add to this, it also has a separate gluten free menu.

AN EVENT taking place in Caerphilly next month (June, 2016) to celebrate the men and women who make up the armed forces community has received support from a business in Cardiff for the third year running.
Wessex Garages on Hadfield Road is one of the principal sponsors for the South Wales Armed Forces Day, which takes place on Saturday, June 25 at Owain Glyndwr Playing Fields on Crescent Road.
Gareth Howells, General Manager at the dealership, explained: “We are incredibly proud to be one of the principle sponsors again for the South Wales Armed Forces Day. This is the first time the popular annual event will be held in Caerphilly and we are sure the town will turn out in their thousands to support the event. We just can’t wait to attend.
“The day is a great chance for us to show our gratitude and support to the men and women who make, and have made, such a huge contribution on behalf of our country. The spectacular military displays and activities will also make the day a fantastic family day out.
“This year we have also sponsored the Silver Stars, the Parachute Display Team of the Royal Logistic Corps. The Silver Stars parachute display team consists of Regular Army and Army Reserve logistics personnel based at units across the UK, Germany and Cyprus.
“Their mission is to carry out parachute displays for both private and public events in order to demonstrate one of the many capabilities and sporting possibilities of the Royal Logistic Corps. The Silver Stars parachute display will take place at 11am on Saturday, June 25.”
The aim of Armed Forces Day South Wales is to raise awareness of the contribution made by those who serve and have served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces.
It also gives people an opportunity to show their support to the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community, from currently serving personnel, to service families, veterans and cadets.
More than 600 service personnel, including representatives from the British Army, Air Force and Royal Navy, as well as cadets and Armed Forces veterans will form a parade at 10.30am on June 25 through the streets of Caerphilly town centre, before a special Drum Head Service at 12noon is held against the backdrop of Caerphilly Castle.
Visitors to the event will then be invited to an afternoon of family fun on Owain Glyndwr Playing Fields on Crescent Road where the area will be taken over by a collection of military stalls and marquees, demonstrations, an events arena and a licensed bar.
Colonel Phil Hubbard, Chairman of the Armed Forces Day South Wales Committee, said: “We are very excited and honoured to be bringing this great day to Caerphilly. Armed Forces Day South Wales has become an important annual event which has grown with Armed Forces’, veterans’ and their families’ involvement and the support and attendance of the general public.
“I would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Wessex Garages for its support once again. Without the help of a number of organisations including the Ministry of Defence, Welsh Government and Caerphilly County Borough Council and our sponsors the event would not be possible.”
Wessex Garages has outlets in Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester and Newport. It specialises in new and used car sales across South Wales and the South West.
