Free Inclusive Archery programme for Adults at Fermanagh Lakeland Forum

2nd August 2019

Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has organised an Inclusive Archery programme for adults commencing at the Fermanagh Lakeland Forum, Enniskillen on Monday 9 September 2019 from 7pm – 7.45pm.

The free programme has been organised by the Council as part of the Healthy Towns West programme in partnership with the Public Health Agency (PHA) under the Making Life Better framework of Empowering Healthy Living and will be delivered by a fully qualified coach.

Speaking about the forthcoming programme, the Chair of Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, Councillor Siobhán Currie, said:

“Being physically active is important for our health and well-being. Fermanagh and Omagh District Council is delighted to be, once again, working in partnership with the Public Health Agency to provide this inclusive opportunity for our residents to get active through archery’’.

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

“It’s important to be physically active at each stage of our lives and, combined with eating healthily, this can help us age well and feel good. Regular physical activity will help keep the heart and lungs working efficiently, maintain a healthy weight, keep muscles and bones strong, and help reduce the risk of developing chronic conditions including some cancers and Type 2 diabetes. Being more physically active can also help to reduce anxiety and stress. I would encourage people to get involved with this programme which promises to be great fun.”

Places on the Inclusive Archery programme are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Programme registration is available from Monday 12 August 2019.
