Get Active Armidale

Armidale Regional Sports Council has been encouraging the community to ‘get active’.  

The 2016/17 Newcastle Permanent Get Active Armidale Program was held in two stages – two weeks of activity in October 2016 and another two weeks in March 2017.  

According to Council’s Sports Coordinator Alex Piddington, eleven local organisations volunteered to host ‘come and try’ sessions in March.  

“The range of activities attracted a great response from the community,” Ms Piddington said.  

“Almost 100 people participated in the ‘come and try’ sessions. People of all ages and from a wide range of backgrounds took the opportunity to try something new and get active!”  

‘Come and try’ sessions were hosted by the 2nd Armidale Scout Group, New England Mountain Bikers, Armidale Ex-Services Women’s Lawn Bowls Club, St Peter’s Cathedral Bell Ringers, Altitude Physio, Sama Studio, Barbarians Rugby Union Football Club, Healthy Inspirations, Armidale Riding Club, Embody Wellness Studio and Armidale Parkrun.  

Armidale Regional Sports Council is keen to continue this program into the future.  

“It was fantastic to see such enthusiastic participation by the organisations involved and by the large number of participants who came from across the community,” said Ms Piddington.  

“Thank you to the program’s major sponsors Newcastle Permanent and the NSW Office of Sport and Recreation for their ongoing support of the Get Active initiative. Thanks also to the organisations and volunteers who donated their time and effort to the program for 2017!”  

Council is seeking feedback from community members about the Get Active Armidale program. To ‘have your say’, please go to yoursay.armidale.nsw.gov.au
