MEN aged over 60 are being encouraged to get involved in healthy activities including archery, bowling, darts, and table tennis.

St Helens Council’s Sports Development team has teamed up with Public Health staff in a ground-breaking project supported by Helena Partnerships, ReNew Parr, the Bridgewater Health Improvement Team and sports clubs.

St Helens Council’s Cabinet member Cllr Gareth Cross said: “Getting as many people involved in sport and physical activity has many important health benefits – especially around heart related issues - and it’s great fun too!

“We’ll be looking to engage as many people as possible at these and other events around the borough in the near future.”
