Exercises and activities to try at home from various organisations will be posted on the @WelHatSports account on Twitter.

Planned activities for the week include girls’ dance with Hatfield-based FK Dance Academy, HIIT (high intensity interval training) and PE with Joe Wicks, postural stability for older adults, Disney Dance-along, Pilates, Yoga and Couch to 5k.

“This Girl Can is always a fantastic opportunity to try something new or rekindle your interest in a former hobby and even with the current restrictions there will still be lots of fun things to do,” said Cllr Fiona Thomson, executive member for governance and public health.

“We’re lucky in Welwyn Hatfield to have lots of clubs and groups that offer activities and sports sessions so you’re bound to find something you like locally. Give it a go and don’t forget to tweet your home-workout pictures to @WelHatSports.”
