There’s a simple, fun way to tackle concerns around increasing levels of obesity – and not just for children – with the Mayor of Mid and East Antrim Borough Councillor Audrey Wales MBE, pictured here, encouraging residents to try out some skipping.

“Everyone can take part in our forthcoming ‘Hop Skip and Jump’ event that is taking place in Town Parks, Larne.

“Held on National Skipping day, Friday 21 April this will underline that this activity is not only a great way to keep fit but is also great fun too.

“The health benefits of skipping are incredible,” the Mayor added. “Outdoor play is also vital for any child’s physical and mental development and the health benefits of being in the open air are numerous – for everyone – adult and child alike.

“With current concerns around childhood obesity, unhealthy diets and lack of exercise, getting out to play and getting active by skipping is more important than ever. And of course, it’s great fun for children – and adults alike.”

Along with the skipping equipment that will be available, Council will also have bouncy castles, trampolines and other play equipment to help everyone ‘Hop Skip and Jump’ their way to a healthier lifestyle.
