New partnership to help support and improve the wellbeing of West Lindsey residents

Improving the physical and mental wellbeing of residents in the district of West Lindsey is the focus of a new partnership between leisure operator Everyone Active and the Gainsborough Trinity Foundation.

The organisations have linked up to help families in areas of need, older people in isolation, care homes and sheltered housing and residents in rural areas.

Everyone Active runs West Lindsey Leisure Centre in partnership with West Lindsey District Council, while the Gainsborough Trinity Foundation is a registered charity based at The Venue at Roses, which supports and improves the lives of people through sport and education.

Among these activities are walking sports such as walking football, after-school clubs and district-wide wellbeing walks with the Lincolnshire Co-op.

There will also be an Active Care Homes programme and a Fit Villages project which includes seated exercises, boccia and short mat bowls, parent and toddler soft play sessions, training courses and education classes and A ctive Antz, for parents and tots, is set to launch soon, while roller skating for families will return later in the year.
