Hackney men try out new activities on a ‘big day out’

It was men only at an event at the Stoke Newington West Reservoir designed to give them a chance to get together over lunch and try out new activities.

The Men’s Day Out at the reservoir at Green Lanes was organised by the Forward Thinking Men group at Age Concern Hackney for the over 50s.

Participants had a go at sailing and rock climbing as well as getting a hair cut and joining in a yoga class.

Cyclists could get their bicycles safety checked at a bike maintenance workshop and they could also learn the steps to join in a Caribbean tango.
