I was lucky enough to start work with Together an Active Future in 2022, with the aim to create a whole village approach to physical and mental wellbeing through inclusive activities. "Nothing to Something" and "Something to More". Through 2023 we will be looking to accelerate the progress and to set grounds to make it sustainable and last forever.
Here are some of the projects already happening.
Play and Sport Library
A Crowdfunding Lancashire bid, to raise money so that there would be sports equipment readily available for the whole community to access. Providing ease and accessibility into sport and play and to increase the use of the playing field.
Rounders and Table Tennis
As a result of the above, a rounders meetup has been started every thursday at 6pm. All are welcome to join.
It has already been shown to be multi-age, multi strating fitness level. And a "right good laugh!" We meet at Dunsop Bridge Playing Fields.
Table Tennis will take over from Rounders in the winter months still on Thursdays from 5:15-7pm

A class for those who want to stay biologically young whilst they chronoligally age. A fancy way of saying stay younger for longer. It aims to support balance/strength, cardio, brain health, and community.
A free Introduction to Moving More Naturally in the environment we evolved in, making the connections that we are missing out on. Set as part of the Forest of Bowland AONB events calendar, i wanted to give people the inspiration to do more in nature and to really feel a sense of being part of it.
