Fife Sports and Leisure Trust, which runs facilities across the Kingdom, is working with Fife Council, NHS Fife and Fife Golf Trust to build a picture of how accessible information is regarding opportunities to get active.

The survey aims to improve the ways which they can better signpost the range of facilities, activities and programmes for all ages, abilities and interests.

Scott Urquhart, sport and physical activity team manager, said: “The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and I’d encourage people to take part, no matter how little or often or where they currently take part in physical activity.

“Their input can really help improve the way programmes and activities are promoted and made accessible to local communities.”

The survey has the backing of the local authority, which set up the arms length trust ro run its sport and leisure centres.

Councillor Judy Hamilton, who convenes the community and housing service sub-committee, said: "We all know that movement and physical activity is essential to our health and wellbeing; and we want services that provide those opportunities for us.

"This is an excellent opportunity to give your thoughts and suggest ways that we could mould our services to fit you."

The survey, which is available on the website, closes on March 31.
