SPORTS clubs and organisations across the borough will be joining forces in a bid to promote the effects of exercise on wellbeing.
As part of the first-ever Redditch Wellbeing Week, families will be able to enjoy activities including cycling, sports day style races and aerobics during a Feel Good Revolution day at the town's Abbey Stadium from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, October 12.
Choose How You Move will be offering bike and scooter sessions at 1pm with a Couch to 5km jogging session at 2pm, a 'Power Hour' class featuring four different exercises run by Abbey trainer Charlotte Street, also at 2pm, and pad demonstrations through the day from Redditch Amateur Community Boxing Club.
Plenty will be on offer for children, with activities co-ordinated by Sure Start Children's Centre and a Power Bar Challenge focused on creating a healthy snack from Yum Tum Club's Fay Yeng.
Residents will also be able to find out more about health, nutrition and healthy living to boost wellbeing from experts including Abbey staff, My Time Active and Redditch Borough Council's sports development team with organisations including Save The Alex and Redditch Heart Safe also taking part.
The day run by Redditch Mental Health Action Group in conjunction with the council is the final event in a week of activities including an Advice Shop in the Kingfisher Centre, a breakfast taster session at Sandycroft Centre, Your Ideas and Bromford Support open days and activities across all six Children's Centres.
