DUDLEY Council’s chief executive is getting ready to don her trainers as she prepares to join Brierley Hill Primary School’s daily mile.

Sarah Norman will join children this morning (Thursday, April 28) as they run – or walk – their way to fitness through a regular daily mile.

It comes as part of a national initiative which has been encouraging children to get more physically active during their school day by taking part in the 15 minute challenge.

A number of schools and organisations across the borough are already taking part in the initiative, while around half of the primary schools have also expressed an interest in taking part.
