RESIDENTS are being urged to take a bit of ‘me time’ to discover top tips on keeping fit and healthy.
Rubicon Leisure runs the Abbey Stadium on behalf of the council and hosts a Macmillan coffee afternoon each year which they use to demonstrate the health and fitness available there.
This year the council and Rubicon have joined forces to further promote how they can help support healthier lifestyles for everyone.
As part of the Macmillan Coffee afternoon, hot drinks and cakes will be sold at the event to raise cash for the charity.
The NHS wellbeing bus was at the stadium and with cancer nurses on hand to give advice.
Redditch Borough Council’s portfolio-holder for leisure, Coun Jo Beecham said: “Our priority is for residents to live independent, active and healthy lives and this event showcases what’s on offer for our residents, especially those who are less active.
“I am really proud of the programmes and fitness opportunities we already offer, including walking sports and health walks, and it’s great to team up with Rubicon to show how big the offer across the borough really is.”
Council leader Matt Dormer said “Since 2018 Rubicon Leisure, a trading company owned by the council, has been responsible for running the Abbey Stadium Sports Centre as well as other facilities including the Palace Theatre and Arrow Valley Visitor Centre.
“These are some of the jewels in Redditch’s crown and provide great opportunities for our residents to get out and about.
