FREE activities to help Greenwich residents kickstart a healthy new attitude are running in the borough until March 15.

The events are part of the Greenwich Get Active Roadshow which tours Greenwich offering advice on getting active and has seen more than 14,500 Greenwich residents since it launched in January.

There will be a demo of Chi Ball – a blend of tai chi, yoga and pilates – at General Gordon Square on March 1 at 11.30am and a line dancing demo at 1.30pm.

There will also be a walkercise event at General Gordon Square on March 15 at 1.30pm and a surprise toe-tapping event on March 8 at 1.30pm.

Greenwich Council cabinet member for health, adults and older people Councillor John Fahy said: “Regular physical activity can help you look good, feel good and improve fitness. It can also be a great way to have fun, socialise, and help reduce the stresses of daily life.

“The Get Active roadshows have proved extremely popular this year, and I’m pleased that we have been able to support so many local residents to focus on their health.

“I would encourage local people of all ages to go along to one of our roadshows where they will find expert advisers to offer all the information and support they need to live a healthier lifestyle.”
