Councillor Eddie Connor, Cabinet Member for
Leisure, Community and Culture commented “We attracted over 160
participants last year and we’re hoping this year’s event is even
bigger and better. This is a fun way to keep fit and improve
the health and wellbeing of our residents, as well as providing an
opportunity to represent their local area, socialise and make new
friends. If you’re over 50, I’d encourage you to come along
and take part!”
