2.1 Fight Klub would like to hold a free event on Tuesday 29th August from 5.00pm until 8.00pm to celebrate the successes of a fitness group over the past year. Details as follows:- “The weekly classes have been getting lots of Brightlingsea’s residents up and on their feet. Many of us find that a lack of self-confidence or motivation is a barrier to exercise and socialising and this group has been a great support in helping people overcome these challenges so they can enjoy getting fit and socialise!

We would like to hold the free event on Tuesday 29th August from 5.00pm until 8:00pm on the green down by the promenade (where the local car boot sales usually take place). We’ll be running a special taster session set to music (which we will power with a generator). The event will be suitable for all ages and abilities and will include a special mini session for children.

We will be looking to book an ice cream van for the event too, so that those joining in with the class can reward themselves with a treat afterwards!

We will, of course, clear up any litter from the event before leaving.”
