Marton joins Active Leisure’s #Passiton4Blackpool message

Active Blackpool combines Blackpool Council’s three leisure facilities – Blackpool Sports Centre, Moor Park Health and Leisure Centre and Palatine Leisure Centre. While lockdown has being going on, the organisation has been encouraging everyone to stay healthy and enjoy the outdoors as much as possible – while abiding by the rules. One of the initiatives they have organised is Pass it on 4 Blackpool, which has seen members of the community pass on various items of sports equipment via a series of video links shared on YouTube and social media channels. Members of the town’s local cycle team, its health referral scheme, Blackpool Athletics Club and NHS workers have all taken part to encourage Blackpool residents to stay active to improve physical and mental health. Featured in the series is Marton’s very own Mrs Blencowe, who took to the beach and advised people to try not to worry, and keep walking. It was wonderful to see Marton take part alongside so many of the town’s health ambassadors.
