The search is on to find Scotland’s Healthy Helpers!

Do you know a parent or carer working on a budget who has helped change their family’s eating habits for the better? Maybe they’ve managed to get the kids eating more veg or improved their skills in the kitchen so they can make healthier meals?

 

We’re on the hunt for volunteers to become Scotland’s Healthy Helpers: the unsung family food heroes who are making a real difference to their family’s diet and lifestyle. People who can inspire and motivate others to do the same.

 

If this sounds like you or someone you know, visit www.eatbetterfeelbetter.co.uk/healthyhelpers by Friday 6 November to fill out an entry form or to find out more information.

Tennis on the Road – Tranent Tennis Club

Tennis on the road TranentWe will be taking the high road and low road around Scotland to bring tennis to a whole new generation of kids.

At the heart of the programme are the games Judy Murray enjoyed with Jamie and Andy when they were little. What will you need? Think bean bags and buckets than Head rackets and backspin. We will be showcasing simple games and activities using everyday household objects that cost nothing to set up and that help develop the vital ABCs of sport – agility, balance and co-ordination.

Judy and her coaching team will aim to give parents, coaches, teachers and volunteers the tools needed to get kids active and to help further kick-start and develop tennis in Scotland.

Tranent Tennis Club- Polson Park, East Lothian on Friday 21st August 2015 between 17:00 -18.30pm
