Chesterfield FC Community Trust and Alfreton Town FC are teaming up to deliver a male-specific adult weight management programme.

Staff from the Community Trust will be delivering the programme, using facilities at Alfreton Town and Alfreton Leisure Centre.

Michael Bradley, Alfreton Town’s CEO, said: “I am delighted to announce that the club is working in partnership with Chesterfield FC Community Trust and Places Leisure, specifically Alfreton Leisure Centre, to help promote healthier lifestyles and weight management across the Amber Valley.

“There is no cost to sign up to the programme and there are some fantastic benefits, such as free gym membership for three months, thanks to our friends at Alfreton Leisure Centre and free match tickets for Alfreton Town home fixtures.”

Andrea Parkinson, the Community Trust’s wellbeing manager, is delighted to be working in partnership with Alfreton Town to deliver the programme.

She said: “Working within Amber Valley will allow us to support more participants. I would like to thank Alfreton Town and Alfreton Leisure Centre for being so accommodating.
“Having already successfully delivered a similar programme in the HUB at the Technique Stadium, I am sure the programme will be a great success in Alfreton.”

Delivered over a 12-week period, the programme will feature sessions each Monday (12pm to 2pm), starting on January 17.
