Being active is easy, fun and social. It can also be a great way of reducing stress and lifting your mood. Leading a healthy lifestyle helps keep your heart healthy, reduces your risk of serious illnesses and strengthens muscles and bones. It is also a great way to spend time with family, meet friends and get involved in the local community.
With only half of Barnet’s adult population physically active for at least 150 minutes per week, and the borough facing many health inequalities, including increased prevalence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and growing obesity levels amongst our children and young people; it is time to tackle this together!
On the 17th July, the Fit and Active Barnet (FAB) campaign was launched and will encourage residents to include more activity in to their day and feel FAB! The campaign will involve the delivery of a range of marketing and promotional materials including bus shelter advertisements, high street posters, Barnet First splash (delivered to approximately 155,000 households), social media updates, posters within GP surgeries and libraries and digital advertising.
As well as the promotional activities being run from 17 July, there will also be a free FAB Card for residents and a FAB Hub. To find out more see the attached document: FAB Campaign – Partner Pack FINAL
