Cotswold residents fittest in south west
COTSWOLD residents are the fittest in the south west according to a recent survey.
The Cotswold district has the highest percentage of adults participating in sports and active recreation across the region.
The survey, conducted by Sport England, looked at the percentage of adults taking part in sports offered by local authorities over the last two years.
Results revealed that more than 28 per cent of adults in the Cotswolds took part in some form of regular sporting activity which was higher than anywhere else in the region.
Councillor Barry Gibbs, cabinet leader for promoting sport, said: “It’s great to see so many people exercising regularly and, with the Olympics fast approaching, we are all hoping that this is an upward trend that will continue.”
