YOUNGSTERS have been having fun getting fit in Honley.
Over the last few weeks about 75 children aged from six to 11 have taken part in the Fun In Athletics scheme.
It has been run by West Yorkshire Police in partnership with Holmfirth Harriers, Kirklees Council and Honley High School.
Sgt John McFadzean, a Neighbourhood Policing Team sergeant and youth development officer for Holmfirth Harriers, said: "The idea is to get children fit, but in a fun way.
"We have worked with individual children from 16 junior schools throughout Huddersfield, introducing them to physical activities, such as running, jumping and throwing.
"It helps to keep them out of mischief, as well as giving them something positive to focus on."
The scheme was started a few years ago by Pc Michael Houseman, when he was the community beat officer for Honley.
Sgt McFadzean added: "It has now grown so much that we have more than 70 children registered with us for the scheme.
"We have worked together with Kirklees and Honley High, which has lent us the facilities free to do something for the community.
"Holmfirth Harriers have won awards for being innovative in their approach to links with schools."
All the children who took part in the scheme were presented with certificates and Easter eggs by Huddersfield police commander Det Chief Supt Barry South.
