SPORTS facilites in Annan are limbering up for National Fitness Day later this month.

Annan Swimming Pool and Newington Leisure Centre will both be offering free physical activities for everyone to try as part of National Fitness Day on Wednesday September 21 – which is set to be the UK’s most active day of the year.

Free activities will take place in leisure facilities, parks and workplaces nationally to encourage as many people as possible to try a new activity and take the first step, no matter how small, to living a more active life.

Speaking ahead of the event, Annandale Cllr Archie Dryburgh said: “National Fitness Day is the UK’s most active day of the year – in 2021 more than 22 million people were inspired to be active on the day.

“We hope that this year’s campaign will continue to encourage people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to come together to recognise the importance of prioritising being active for our mental wellbeing as well as physical health.”
