We want to ‘Get Maldon Moving’ to support Sport Relief on Friday 13th March and to highlight one of the Council’s important health priorities for the Maldon District which is to increase physical activity and tackle obesity.

From the 9th March and in the lead up to this year’s Sport Relief event, Maldon District Council and Places Leisure, who run Blackwater Leisure Centre and Dengie Hundred Sports Centre, want to hear about the ways that our residents are moving more.

Whether this activity is at work, school, nursery, or in your free time, we want to hear about it!

Councillor Sue White, the Council’s nominated Livewell Member, said; “Being active is such an important element of a healthy lifestyle and with tackling Obesity a key health priority for the Council, we are encouraging residents to get Maldon moving for Sport Relief. This is a great opportunity to increase physical activity and enjoy a range of activities whilst raising money for an important cause”.

For more information about how you can #GetMaldonMoving for #SportRelief2020, please visit: www.maldon.gov.uk/getmaldonmoving where we have produced an activity pack for workplaces, schools, nurseries, community groups, and the public.

This activity pack contains ideas and support for everyone in the District and we’d love all of you to share your Physical Activity and how you choose to Get Maldon Moving throughout March, particularly on Friday 13th for Sport Relief Day.

Please upload your photos and videos of how you are exercising and moving for this important cause on Facebook with #GetMaldonMoving, #SportRelief2020, and #livewell to enter our social media competition for some fantastic fitness freebies. Prizes will available for those most active and vocal residents, including free gym day passes, livewell merchandise and more, so get posting!
