Improving Physical Ability

Retained Fire Officer Richard Izzard

We speak to Richard Izzard, a retained fire officer at Slaithwaite Fire Station, Huddersfield, who coaches friendly physical activity sessions on a weekly basis to members of his community

The programme known as MAGIC was set up at the fire station through co-ordination between Kirklees Council and Station Commander Dale Gardiner.

Richard gave us 10 minutes of his time after delivering a session to tell us all about the programme.

NB At UK Coaching we aim for the highest of standards. In the podcast Kirklees Active Leisure is referenced when it should have been Kirklees Council.
