Local children's activities

Making sure your child gets enough exercise each and every day can be difficult when trying to come up with new and exciting ideas. So our physiotherapy team have devised a leaflet and a list of website ideas to help you:

  1. Keep your children's activity levels in line with national guidelines.
  2. Ensuring the exercise is fun so your child doesn't get bored.
  3. Improving your child's general health and well being.
