New ini­tia­tive to help North Wex­ford get fit

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

Wex­ford County Coun­cil is call­ing on busi­nesses to sub­mit ideas for a new health and well-be­ing ini­tia­tive in North Wex­ford called Free­dom Fit, which will take place dur­ing the schools mid-term break next Fe­bru­ary.

Gorey dis­trict man­ager Amanda Byrne ex­plained that the event will be held from Fe­bru­ary 9 10 18, so any vis­i­tors in the area can get in­volved in the ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing their stay here. The pro­gramme will boast a range of ac­tiv­i­ties and chal­lenges, in­clud­ing work­outs, danc­ing, walk­ing, run­ning, chil­dren’s events, mas­sages, healthy eat­ing and food demon­stra­tions.

The ini­tia­tive comes from the North Wex­ford Tourism Steer­ing Group, which is made up of lo­cal tourism op­er­a­tors and is chaired by gen­eral man­ager of Ash­down Park Ho­tel, Paul Fine­gan.

The or­gan­is­ers say the ac­tiv­i­ties can be linked to other at­trac­tions in the area, so busi­nesses that are not di­rectly in­volved can also ben­e­fit.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion or to pro­pose an event on be­half of a business, email in de­tails by Fri­day, November 17 to liz. stanley@wex­ford­

The draft pro­gramme will be re­vealed on Wed­nes­day, November 22, at 8.30 a.m., in the Ash­down Park Ho­tel.
