Active Body Active Mind Up & Running

The Active Body Active Mind programme for female social welfare recipients got under way this week with thirteen women taking part. This eight week programme is being run by Waterford Sports Partnership and Dunhill Education with the aim of improving  lifestyle management and professional skills and increasing physical activity through local sports taster sessions.

For the introductory session on Tuesday participants learned about the background of Waterford Sports Partnership and Dunhill Multi-Education Centre and got to know each other with some ice breaker games. Michelle Hayes was the first speaker of the programme and gave an informative and interactive presentation on Nutrition and The Benefits of Exercise.

On Thursday, Fenor Road Bowling Club kicked off the sports taster sessions with a Road Bowling introduction. Liam Power and his tutors taught the group tips and techniques for playing the game and the group was split into teams to compete. Some natural talent for the game emerged within the group and everyone enjoyed the opportunity to try out this unique traditional sport in the beautiful fresh air and sunshine.

Next week Dunhill Multi Education centre will be inviting participants to attend a Managing Your Finances Module and Waterford Sports Partnership will be showcasing all that Walking has to offer in Waterford with a workshop and trip to the Anne Valley Trail.
