Continue to support the #onething campaign, including the desire to increase the number of health checks given to local residents working towards pre set targets of impact.

Provide a programme of school holiday provision for children and young people in the Borough Council’s leisure facilities making certain that investment is made in the promotion of the programmes to ensure awareness of the holiday programmes. Link with the Food Hub to provide water and health snacks during all holiday programmes.
