Sports and Leisure

Sport balls

Staying fit and well is a moving experience – the more we move the fitter and healthier we will be.

Yet with so many opportunities to sit in front of the television or play computer games, too many of us do not move enough.

Let’s do it together!

Move more every day!

5 – 18 year olds need 1 hours activity every day!
