A project encouraging people to become more healthy and active has launched.

Somerset Activity and Sports Partnership (SASP) launched its Active Spaces initiative on Monday to encourage people to make the most of open spaces available to them in their area.

Sessions will take place at Burnham’s Manor Park, in Westfield Road, for general fitness, running groups and walking football, organised by fully-qualified instructors.

The fitness project was created to combat inactivity levels across Somerset and to encourage families and friends to take part in fun, social activities together.

Gareth John, Active Spaces’ project lead, said: “Active Spaces will offer people exciting opportunities in their areas to move more, get active and reap the physical and emotional benefits of physical activity.”
