PEOPLE young and old had fun, learning about getting fit and leading healthier lives at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre.

Tony Galvin, ex-Tottenham Hotspur player, was on hand to help people become human table football players at the Health Action Day.

The event, organised by Stevenage Borough Council, Stevenage Rotary Club and Stevenage Leisure Ltd, and supported by The Comet, aimed to create awareness of a variety of health problems, including obesity, stress and diabetes, as well as to show people that physical activity can be fun.

Throughout the day there were demonstrations and presentations from health and fitness professionals, as well as a question and answer opportunity.

Visitors also had the opportunity to test their skills on a climbing wall, and Nordic walking sessions and a bike ride departed from the leisure centre throughout the day.
