During the Summer Holidays, Skelton & Brotton Parish Council were delighted to offer free Fitness Sessions to children from the Parish
During the Summer holidays Skelton & Brotton Parish Council, once again, funded 6 group fitness sessions for our Key Stage 1 & 2 pupils. Our wonderful mini residents of Skelton and Brotton attended Skelton Civic Hall and St Peter’s School, Brotton, lifting both their hearts and spirits. Kids Boot Camps, Zumba Kids, The Greatest Showman, Glow in the Dark & Acro sessions were delivered by Qualified Children’s Physical Activity Instructor Karen Winspear and fellow qualified instructors from our region, Alex Cornwall, Caroline Grace, Steph Britton and Danielle Stone.
Karen said ‘it’s always great seeing the kids sweat, step away from a games console/tablet and encourage others to progress in our sessions. They were set homework to encourage their parents/carers to join in too after all behaviour breeds behaviour’.
As the NHS is seeing a rise in costs, due to the obesity epidemic and paediatric inactivity Karen said these sessions are a real positive for our region.
