Families have fitness and fun at activity day


There was plenty of fun, fresh air and exercise for participants of the Arun Wellbeing Family Activity Day.

The free event, arranged by the Arun District Council Wellbeing Team, encouraged families to be more active through taking part in a treasure hunt and sports day.

Families used maps to uncover hidden prizes whilst the sports day saw participants take part in a range of traditional sporting events. Water bottles, medals and lunchboxes were handed out as prizes.

Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “It was great to see families from across the Arun District taking part in this fun activity day.

“Families often struggle to find the time to exercise together which is why events like this are so very important.

“Taking time to exercise together or making a few lifestyle changes can make all the difference to improving the general wellbeing, health and happiness of an individual.”

This session, which was part of Wick Week in Littlehampton, took place on Tuesday, 26 July.
