Chichester District Council came away with an award at the Sussex Sports Awards

CHICHESTER District Council came away with a gong at the recent Sussex Sports Awards.

The event, which took place on Friday at Brighton’s Grand Hotel, saw them rewarded with the Workplace Challenge Award. This year the council has delivered a number of successful workplace health initiatives. A team of voluntary workplace health activators have been recruited, covering all District Council departments.

Each activator is expected to generate both formal and informal opportunities for physical activity participation, raise awareness of national/local health and wellbeing campaigns (eg Reaching Rio), and be an ambassador for good health within their service.

Open activity sessions have been set up for all staff, and their efforts this year have not gone unnoticed as they scooped top prize at the Sussex awards ceremony.
