£116,000 aid for workers' fitness

Staff at Lancashire council have signed up to a new fitness programme.

Employees at Fylde Council and the North West Ambulance Service have become the first to benefit from a 116,500 cash injection from the Sport England-funded Y Active Workforce scheme.

The two-year funding was secured through a Fylde Coast YMCA bid in partnership with councils and the Fylde and Wyre Sport and Physical Activity Alliances.

It means that hundreds of employees in the boroughs are now eligible for reduced YMCA health and fitness memberships.

Local businesses interested in getting involved can call 01253 882105.
