Health and National Family Week

Healthy living is really important for families – what we decide about how we eat and exercise affects our children for the rest of their lives.

And on Saturday 30th May it’s time to get sporty with Family Week Sports Day, where clubs and associations will be hosting events and competitions for families to enjoy together.

Sport is one of the best ways to get everyone involved – no matter how athletic they are. So whether it’s joining a club, watching from the sidelines, refereeing or finding something that everyone can do, sport and exercise is something that all can enjoy.
