Athlone Town has been announced as the Pfizer / Irish Times Healthy Town 2015.
It will see an eight-week programme run in the town combining health promotion events, information meetings, health checks, and physical activity sessions to encourage the people of Athlone to improve their health.
The free campaign starts in September, and is supported by the Department of Health and the Irish Heart Foundation.
Anyone with suggestions for activities that could take place as part of Healthy Town should send their details to firstname.lastname@example.org
