Plan: Living with arthritis and staying active
As a charity, The Horder Centre strives to improve the lives of local people by holding regular educational events.
Located in the heart of the Ashdown Forest, the centre is a leading provider of high quality orthopaedic and MSK services, demonstrably improving patients’ mobility and striving to make a positive difference to people’s lives which are accessible to both NHS and private patients. Our core strategy is growth – to increase the number of people who benefit from our unique brand of care.
We are recognised as a provider of secondary care services (elective surgery). To make our vision a reality we have introduced ways of providing and promoting health and wellbeing services, which include community education events, looking at ways of providing benefit to more people through the provision of health, wellbeing and lifestyle-related education.
We have been holding free events at the centre for a few years and our latest two events were attended by more than 140 people learning about living with arthritis and the importance of staying active. We have now introduced two new fitness and wellness classes on a weekly basis specifically designed for those with arthritis.
We have been nominated for the Heart of the Community Award 2012 – The winners receive a share of a £10,000 prize fund. In order to win we need your votes! Votes can be cast via text message or by sending in the voting coupons which are produced in each episode of the Courier Newspaper.

Join the 28 day stop smoking challenge and give up smoking for good this October. Did you know that if you give up smoking for 28 days you are more likely to give it up for good?
Stopping smoking is not an easy task, especially if you are surrounded by friends and family that smoke around you, so why not get them to join you on the 28 day stop smoking challenge and give up together? The moral support you can give to each other and the removal of temptation is a win win situation for everyone.
Need more incentive?
How about saving money?
If you smoke 20 a day you could save:
£46 per week, £198 per month and a massive £2,405 per year!
A 40 a day habit could cost you:
£92 per week, £395 per month and nearly £5,000 per year!
The health benefits:
You might think that giving up smoking is only a benefit to your health in the long term, you would be wrong. Benefits can be felt as quickly with your blood pressure and pulse rate returning to normal after just 20 minutes without a cigarette. After just 8 hours nicotine and carbon monoxide levels in your blood reduce by half and oxygen levels return to normal. Make it through your first day without a smoke and carbon monoxide will be eliminated from the body and your lungs will start to clear out mucus and other smoking debris. 72 hours without a cigarette and your breathing will become easier, bronchial tubes will begin to relax and your energy levels will increase.
There is help at hand… The NHS have put together a special ‘Quit Kit’ with lots of useful resources to help you stick to the straight and narrow.
