FAMILIES have been enjoying sports and activities at this year’s FitBeat event in Emsworth.

Sporting clubs from across the area set up free taster sessions throughout the day, including boxing and archery.

Founder and event organiser Ruth Dancer said: ‘I couldn’t be more delighted with how the event has gone.

‘The primary reason for creating FitBeat was to encourage local families to have a go at a sport free of charge, to show children all of the activities available to them in their community and give them confidence to try something new.

‘I have been thrilled and touched to see children of all ages and abilities beaming with smiles, giving everything a go.’
