We are facing significant social and environmental challenges and RECREATION has proven to play an integral role in addressing these challenges. Engagement in recreation and physical activity is helping reduce diabetes, anti-social behaviour, social isolation, negative impacts on the environment and obesity. (Shared Strategy, 2015)
We need to continue this engagement in recreation and physical activity which will continue to strengthen the individual well- being and the community well-being!
