A wealth of opportunities to get active with the Let's Feel Good Fylde Festival
The Fylde Sports Festival runs through this week, offering a host of opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get active.
It's the culmination of the council’s Let’s Feel Good Fylde initiative and there’s a jam-packed schedule.
Whether people are interested in football or yoga, running or gardening or simply getting out and about in Fylde, the council says there is something for all ages and abilities – from regular weekly activities to one-off events throughout the week.
Events include zumba, community gardening, walking rugby for those aged aged 55 and over; and land yachting on the beach at St Annes.
The council's sports development officer Ian Brookes said: “The Let’s Feel Good Fylde initiative has really raised awareness of the Fylde Sports Festival.
"We have been approached by lots of groups we have never worked with before as well as those we have great ongoing relationships with and the schedule really does have something for everyone."
The council has prepared an on-line sports directory featuring the full list of events and anyone their club, organisation or group added can contact [email protected]
