24hrs a day Fun Sports and Active Ideas
It’s such a shame that schools couldn’t run their sports days and unfortunately our own fun sports on the den still remain not possible.
However, our yellow army aim is to encourage healthy activity for all and introduce ways that this can be done safely, making the most of the fantastic facilities Teignmouth has to offer.
Lockdown has seen many innovative ideas surface – and we wanted to signpost you to some. These are things for you to browse in your own time, try some out and hopefully encourage new habits that you can do as a family.
