People in Tewkesbury are being told how to enjoy a healthier and happier New Year. On Saturday, January 19, the Discover Tewkesbury New Year’s Resolution family event takes place at Tewkesbury School and Sports Centre from 10 am to 4 pm. It’s a free event to encourage all members of the family to try their hand at something new in 2013.

If it’s your aim to get fit and healthy, you could try one of the free sports and fitness taster classes. There’s no need to book - just turn up in comfortable clothing and there are free classes for adults and children. Those looking to gain more confidence could try a new look perhaps with a new hairstyle or beauty regime. With over fifteen different community and voluntary organisations represented at the event , it’s never been easier to fill up your spare time or to try something completely different from bell ringing to volunteering to appreciating the town’s past with the Historical Society. The local Boys Brigade club is challenging youngsters to help them pitch up their expedition tent and to see what's needed in an overnight kit bag for an adventure while the Girl Guides will be showcasing what it takes to 'be prepared' for any eventuality.
