Halton Borough Council has joined a national campaign to celebrate the power of sport and activity.

The inaugural Great British Week of Sport has launched this week. An initiative set up by UK Active, it aims to inspire the nation to celebrate the power that sport and activity has on our mental, physical and social wellbeing.

Taking place until Sunday 27  September, the week is for everyone, regardless of age, background or fitness level , forming the bedrock of the UK’s role in the European Week of Sport.

Halton Borough Council’s Executive Board Member for Sport, Cllr Phil Harris, said: “A series of events across the week will showcase the huge variety of sports and activities which help people of all ages to be more active and reap the mental, social and physical benefits.

“Across Britain, people will be encouraged to use #BeActive on social media during the week to share the activities they love most and help inspire others to get involved.

“In Halton, you can find out what activities are available via our Active Halton website https://activehalton.co.uk/ and by following us on social media.”
