Buggy walks launched

PARENTS IN Hucknall are being urged to get ‘buggy active’ with new fitness sessions launched from the town’s main leisure centre.

Ashfield District Council, in partnership with Everyone Active and SureStart, is delivering three new ‘Push For Fitness’ initiatives.

They are part of the Sport England Sportivate programme, hich aims to increase articipation in sport and physical activity.

The sessions will run for six weeks initially and started on Tuesday at Hucknall Leisure Centre on Linby Road.

Included is a short, brisk walk delivered by a trained walk leader. This is then followed by a short exercise toning programme at the centre.

All the exercise sessions can be done with a buggy, so no need to organise childcare.

There is a small charge of £1 for each date and to book a place, contact Dianne Holmes, on 01623 457233 or e-mail d.c.holmes@ashfield-dc.gov.uk.
