The competition is split in to three categories, including children under eleven years old, 11-13 year olds and 14-16 year olds.

The free health and well being fun day is for all members of the family and will showcase a range of creative and relaxing leisure activities, from designing your own healthy Smoothie drink, to taster sessions of Yoga and Pilates, Indian Head massage and art with food workshops. For the more energetic there is “ Dads and Lads” football and a health and fitness surgery.
The Manager of Glastonbury Leisure Centre, Jennie Loader says that the health and well being day will be a fun and creative experience which will encourage local families to make healthy lifestyle choices: “ The photo competition is just one part of the day which will make young people really think about what it means to be healthy. We also have a range of “hands on” and sporting activities for all the family to enjoy and be inspired by. It should be a great free and family day out.”
