Active Leeds Update
Leeds Let’s Get Active: There are still space for the last few weeks if you want to give something a try. The free community based weekly sessions are also restarting. They look at providing free activity over a number of weeks to support a group to become active. They are looking for partners who may have a group who are inactive and may potentially want to try an activity.
Due to the current situation, these could be a weekly virtual class, or it could be safe socially distanced activities within current guidelines. They have some instructors who may be able to deliver something, but they are also very open to partnership work and funding another provider who may be able to offer what your group needs.
If you have a group, and there is an activity that they may like to try which would help them move more, then get in touch and they can see how we can best support it.
Free Beginner and Confidence Building Cycling Sessions For Adults: These will be weekly until the end of September. Booking is essential and can be done here. The sessions will take place at the John Charles Centre for Sport or Cross Flatts Park. residents can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
