Exercise and activity ideas for children and families

As a team we have decided to try and help all out children and families remain active (and entertained) during the current difficult situation caused by Coronavirus.
 
We will be uploading videos each week – a Workout Of the Week (WOW) on a Monday, something a bit different on a Wednesday and a Friday challenge.
 
We will also start to compile useful resources for parents during this time – these can be found in the Resources section on this page.
 
You can meet (some of) the team right now!
