Getting residents on their feet with Get Active Arbroath

The Get Active Arbroath programme launches on 1st February 2021 and aims to help Arbroath residents and employees engage in a more active lifestyle when travelling into and around the town.

Residents and employees from organisations around the Arbroath area are being encouraged to download the BetterPoints app in order to reward their walking, cycling and running activities.

Local businesses can get involved and benefit by raising their profile and driving footfall. 

Throughout the challenge users can earn and win BetterPoints that they can spend locally (in the form of retail vouchers) or trade for some great local offers and discounts.

This can help boost the business to local retailers though this testing time during Covid-19 and subsequent  lockdowns.
