People of all ages from fitness fanatics to couch potatoes are being urged to give their views in a survey to find out more about sport and leisure across Pendle and beyond.

The survey also includes questions about health and fitness activities in parks and green spaces.
 
“We want to hear from everyone – you don’t have to be sporty or currently take part in any leisure activities to give your views,” explained Councillor Paul White, Leader of Pendle Council.

Pendle Council is organising the consultation to help future planning.

The short survey  is online via www.pendle.gov.uk/sportandleisure from Friday 8 June until midnight on Sunday 5th August.

Copies of the survey for people to fill in and send in a freepost envelope are available in Pendle libraries, at Contact Pendle Centre at Number One Market Street Nelson,  Pendle Council’s Elliott House foyer in Nelson and also  Nelson Town Hall foyer.

Surveys are also available at Pendle Leisure Trust centres including West Craven Sports Centre in Barnoldswick, Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne and Pendle Wavelengths Nelson.

Questions being asked include:
•    Which sport and leisure facilities people have used in the last 12 months
•    How often people exercise and which physical activities people take part in
•    The chance to comment on leisure provision in the local area including for children and young people 
•    Whether there are things people would like to do in the local area to keep active which are not currently available.

Researchers will also be visiting town centres to get a wide range of views and Pendle Council will be contacting local sports clubs and cycling clubs.

“The responses we get will help Pendle Council to provide the right kind of sports and leisure activities and opportunities for people, young and old,  across Pendle,” said Councillor White.

“We’ll also get more information to help us encourage people who are inactive to enjoy a healthier and more active lifestyle and to find ways to help people tackle obesity,” he added.
