Suffolk’s most active communities crowned
Suffolk are moving closer to achieve their collective ambition of becoming the most active county in England with the hard work and commitment of the local communities; championing sports and promoting physical activity for all.
The significant contribution of these local communities in helping to make Suffolk more active are recognised and celebrated by the county council through its annual Most Active Community competition.
Local communities showcase how they have been helping get their local community active, whether it is yoga, dog-walking, hockey or Zumba. The winners of the most active community title receive support from the Suffolk most active county team to explore ways in which they can further build on their success in getting the local community active.
The 2015 winners were Kesgrave (Most Active Town), Brantham (Most Active Large Village) and Middleton-cum-Fordley (Most Active Small Village). Their support and promotion of physical activity gives local people the opportunity and inspiration to get active and stay active.
John Morris, Chairman of Middleton-cum-Fordley Parish Council, said "These activities are a crucial part of the ‘glue’ that brings us together and also undoubtedly contribute to the well-being and friendship in the village as well as the health benefits of a range of activities to participate in.”
What can you do in your community to help raise physical activity levels?
