A project run by Active Bucks has been shortlisted in the 2018 Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH) Awards.
Set up by Buckinghamshire County Council in 2015, the Active Bucks project was created to tackle inactivity across Buckinghamshire.
The project is innovative because it engages 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 says ‘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 over 1500 activities listed across Buckinghamshire with the opportunity to try the first session for free. Further information is available at http://activebucks.co.uk/.
The Royal Society of Public Health Awards ceremony is due to be held in October 2018.
