Fun, Fitness and the Force on Display at Train Like a Jedi Event

Jedi event
The force was strong in Long Sutton on Friday May 25, as young and old alike donned their capes, charged their lightsabers and came down to the 'Train Like a Jedi' evening at Peele Leisure Centre.

The event, part of South Holland District Council's 'SHout and About' health and wellbeing campaign, included Jedi combat classes, Yoda yoga, lightsaber lessons and a slime making masterclass.

There were also competitions for 'best dressed' and art around the theme of 'something that makes you happy/proud to live in South Holland'. Prizes included Vegetable boxes from Manor Fresh and vouchers from 1life.

The winners of these competitions were:

Art: 0-7 years: Lily Briggs

Best dressed Adult: Amy Taylor

Best dressed child: Amber Coleman

Obstacle course winners: 0-5 years: Nathaniel Allen

Jedi event, craft making
Councillor Gary Taylor, South Holland Council Portfolio Holder for Community and Facilities, who attended the event said: "SHout and About is all about sharing new and exciting ways of staying fit and healthy. Spending the evening as a Jedi is just one of many creative and fun ways to keep active, and there is still plenty of time to get involved in the remainder of the SHout and About Quest. Thank you to our officers and 1life for helping to organise this event."

SHout and About Quest is funded by Leisure in the Community and the South Holland District Council and sponsored by 1life and Manor Fresh. It runs until July 1. People can still sign up to take part in the free activities and win great prizes.
