Active Essex 30:30 Campaign

    Every resident in Essex is urged to carry out 30 minutes of physical activity every day in June  – in a campaign launched by Active Essex to help raise funds for a new charity foundation which provides life-changing support through sport and physical activity. People across Essex can choose to carry out any type of physical activity in the 30:30 challenge, such as walking to school or exploring their local area by bike. The challenge can either be completed in one 30 minute burst or by three 10 minute bouts of activity throughout the day. The challenge can also be varied with different activities tried over the 30 day period.

    To kick off your month of activities why not join in the “Activity for All” session at the Romeera Leisure Centre on Friday 1 June at 6.30pm? This will be a very flexible session with activities for all levels of fitness and it’s free. You need to wear suitable clothing and footwear but there is no need to invest in any expensive designer gym wear.

    If you need an activity for Saturday 16th June you could join Cllr Daphne Wallace-Jarvis who is leading a walk. There will be a thirty minute circuit with the possibility of an extension for those with time and energy to spare.  Please meet outside the entrance to the Doctors’ surgery in Lower Street for a 10.00am start.

    Look out for other activities organised by the Tennis and Bowls Club.
