Starting tomorrow (Wednesday 8 August) right through until Wednesday 29 August, activities form part of Healthy Living’s ‘Fit4ALL Summer Time Fun’ programme which includes walks; nature hunts; balls games; Olympic and sports day type events, and much more besides.
No Healthy Living event would be complete without an appearance from mascot, Captain Tuck who will be in attendance at every FIT4ALL Summer Time Fun event.
Meanwhile, as a way of promoting the borough’s outdoor gym stations, family-friendly fitness in the park sessions with qualified Healthy Living workers will be held in Queens Park, Taylor Park, Nanny Goat Park, and Mesnes Park.
Introduced in spring 2016, the gyms were installed as part of the St Helen’s Council’s Healthy Weight Strategy to increase activity levels and promote green space.
Encouraging residents to get involved, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Better Health and Building Arts & Culture, Councillor Gill Neal, said: “It’s always good to get out and enjoy the fresh air in our beautiful parks and open spaces, but there’s even more of a reason to through these fun events which are a great way to bring families together while promoting living a healthy lifestyle.”
