A total of 1,200 people have signed up to A Better Medway’s Healthy New Year campaign since November, and there’s still two events left for people to make a health pledge.

Make a pledge at either Chatham High Street on Thursday, 24 January or Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre on Thursday, 31 January to be in with a chance of winning some great prizes.

Residents have vowed to improve their health and well being in 2013, and pledges include exercising more, eating less takeaways, giving up smoking, joining a gym, taking the stairs instead of the lift and cooking more healthy meals with the family at home.

Among those who have made pledges are all of the players at Gillingham FC.
Due to the overwhelming response to the campaign, A Better Medway announced this month that they would reward participants with a free swim. Everyone who makes a pledge in January at a high street event will receive a voucher for a free swim at any Medway Council pool.

People who have made their pledge by post, online or at a previous event can claim their free swim by contacting A Better Medway. Other prizes on offer are a trip to Diggerland, a signed Gillingham FC football, a trip to the Historic Dockyard and free gym passes – all of which will be decided by a prize draw next month (February).
