The Active Communities team develops and co-ordinates activities, in partnership with the education and health services, the police and the voluntary sector, to maximise achievement in sport, encourage personal fitness and healthy lifestyles - particularly in young and older people.
We work closely with schools, clubs, coaches and facilities to improve access to sport and physical activity for all sectors of the community. We also provide support and advice to sport and leisure groups and the voluntary sector. The team runs a variety of outreach programmes.
Our aim is to make sport more accessible, especially to people in the more remote villages in our district, by taking activities out into local communities. These activities have included the summer playscheme and mobile skatepark, which proved very popular with children and young people in the villages it visited.
The Activities on offer are Activity Camp Days; Fishing; and Forest Camp. See below for a break down of these activities or contact Active Communities for more information and a booking form. Please note these activities are extremely popular, booking in advance is required to avoid disappointment.
The Activity Camp days have a specific theme each day combined with a mountain of activities on offer such as Dodgeball, Puppet Making, Football, Face Painting, Quick Cricket, Parachute Games, Rounders, Giant Garden Games and many more.
