A Warm Welcome 

Welcome to the Isabel Blackman Centre (IBC), Winding Street, Old Town, Hastings.  

The Centre is a health, leisure and wellbeing centre for the over 50's . We've had a complete makeover and now have a lovely café restaurant, activity classes, exercise studio, accessible gym, therapy room and community shop.

Our aim is to offer a warm, affordable, place for you to enjoy; learn something new, enjoy keeping fit and socialise. 
Explore our website, pop down to the centre, or call us on 01424 235 535 to speak to the team.

We are open Monday to Friday 8am - 4pm, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Looking to learn a new language, join a arts & crafts group or even play some popular games we have something for everyone in our Recreation classes.

The Benefits of Keeping Fit

Getting fit when you are over 50 is an amazing opportunity to help support your general health in later life, both physically and mentally.  Not only can regular exercise help you manage things like your weight and heart health, but it can also reduce your risk of serious health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. Here at the IBC not only do we have our gym exclusively for the over 50's, but we have a great range of fitness classes for all levels, and our Physical Instructor Ebs is on hand to speak to about a personal plan to best meet your health goals.
