Fitness programme begins

A PROGRAMME to help families get fitter and healthier will be held again in North Somerset next year.

The 10-week MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It) programme consists of two-hourly after-school sessions twice every week designed to boost confidence and self-esteem and tackle issues with food.

Independent research has shown children who attend the MEND programme have experienced long-term health benefits including weight loss and improvements in fitness.

A new course covering Backwell, Nailsea and Yatton is due to start in the new year.

Sessions allow families to socialise before children aged seven to 13 take part in activities such as climbing, trampolining or swimming.
