AN exciting timetable of events is planned for the launch of the Ellesmere Port and Neston Community Sport Network.
The event hopes to put a spring in your step next Wednesday (April 2) with free activities at Whitby Park, the EPIC Leisure Centre and the Links Healthy Living Centre in Civic Square, all Ellesmere Port.
The Network was established in 2006 to promote physical activity for residents to ensure this becomes a fit, active and healthy borough.
Funding of £426,000 from Sport England and other partners, supports five key projects that will be showcased at the launch.
On the day Whitby Park will see a selection of cycling activities including “Wheels for all” – providing adapted cycles for varying abilities – and the “Bike Doctor”, who will give expert tips on how to keep you and your bicycle in the best shape.
Whitby Park is also home to the new Wheels Park where skate park experts Tribe will give demonstrations and training sessions between 12 noon and 4pm.
Activities at the EPIC include tri-golf, boccia, mega-inflatable pool splash, family dance active and a ball workout to shape you up.
Events starting at Links HLC include a Pilates taster session and an evening Treasure Hunt.
Allison Lewis, the borough’s principal community development officer, said: “It is going to be a great opportunity to sample a variety of free activities.
“Places are limited, so booking in advance is recommended.
“We have produced a special leaflet giving full details and timings for the activities on offer. Bring your leaflet with you to ensure your ticket to ride.”
