Exercise is a key way to reduce stress, as part of Stress Awareness Week the Abbey Stadium and the Sports Development Team at Redditch Borough Council have teamed up to offer residents the opportunity to try a range of fitness classes for free between Monday April 15 and Sunday April 21.

Sports Development Officer at Redditch Borough Council, Hayley Gwilliam, said: “I’m really pleased to not only have partnered with Rubicon Leisure and the team at Abbey Stadium to deliver this event but to also be attending to provide advice connecting people to support for their mental health, wellbeing, and physical health.”

Managing director of Rubicon Leisure, Ben Clawson-Chan, said: “At Rubicon Leisure, our mission is to help our local communities in Redditch live healthier and happier lives.

“This includes mental health as well as physical health.
