Free Inclusive Archery at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum for people aged 18 and over

Published: 12th April 2017

A free 8-week Inclusive Archery programme for those aged 18 and over will start at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen on Monday 24 April 2017 at 8.30pm.

The free one hour session, which has been organised as part of Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme and is part funded by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, will be delivered by a fully qualified coach.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, Chairperson of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Mary Garrity, said:

“Being physically active is important for health and well-being. Being physically active from a young age can help to encourage life-long participation in physical activity. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is pleased to work in partnership with Sport Northern Ireland’s Every Body Active 2020 programme to provide this opportunity for our young residents to get active through archery.”

Sport Northern Ireland Chair George Lucas commented:

“Sport NI is delighted to be investing over £6m of National Lottery funding in the 11 District Councils across Northern Ireland. By working on the delivery of Every Body Active 2020 we will begin to see real changes in sport and physical activity participation – especially amongst women and girls, people with a disability and those in areas of greatest social need. We look forward to seeing the impact of our investment for people in our communities, helping them to enjoy, engage and excel in sport and leading to a population which is more active more often.”

Places on the Inclusive Archery programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
