Groups support Fit Like Ellon

More than 40 local groups and organisations offering activities, support and advice in the Ellon area have signed up to take part in this Saturday’s Fit Like Ellon event to showcase what is on offer.

Last year’s inaugural event saw nearly 50 groups take part. The event has been organised by the Ellon Health and Wellbeing Group in response to a survey about access to local groups and organisations.

Sophie Humphries, Aberdeenshire Council’s community planning officer, said: “Following on from last year, the interest in this year’s event has been incredible.

“There is a fantastic range of groups, activities and organisations in the Ellon area but often people don’t know how to find out more information. This event will enable people to find out more and how to get involved.”

The event will be held in Ellon Community Centre from 10am-2pm and is free and open to all, with free refreshments and raffle entry.
