“Fermanagh and Omagh District Council recognises and promotes the benefits of leading an active lifestyle which is one of the key themes of the Fermanagh and Omagh Community Plan and is delighted to once again work in partnership with the PHA to provide this opportunity to our residents.

The inclusive archery programme has been specifically designed to help people who have limited mobility or who find taking exercise difficult.  This activity will help those attending   active while at the same time helping them to  promote positive health and well-being.

Colette Brolly, the PHA’s lead on physical activity, said:

“Being physically active is important for health and well-being.

I would encourage all participants including those with a disability to get involved in the programme.”
