A council’s project has been shortlisted in the prestigious Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) Awards, to be held in October.
The Active Bucks project was set up in 2015 by the county council to tackle inactivity across the county. It is innovative because it involves residents to help shape what types of physical activities are offered. This has led to a number of unconventional but popular activities, such as dog agility and Quidditch being offered.
Noel Brown Cabinet Member for Community Engagement and Public Health said: ‘It’s great to be recognised for all the hard work that people have put in but we couldn’t have done it without all the support from activity providers, businesses and volunteers across the county.’
There are more than 1,500 activities listed across Buckinghamshire and an opportunity to try the first session for free.
