New Activities launching

Fit Villages helps Suffolk's rural communities to set up their own activity programmes with support to get started. We consult with the village to find activities residents will enjoy and arrange them in village halls or community settings.

A recent countywide survey and focus groups has shown that there is an increasing demand for activities designed for older men to participate in. Fit Villages is responding to this by recently launching the delivery of new activities such as Table Tennis, Badminton, Bowls, Archery and Bootcamps and we are looking for villages to get involved over the next year.

If you are interested in starting an activity in your area please complete the enquiry form below to find out more about setting up an activity in your local community.

See what some of our table tennis group think of the new activities below...

"I haven't played anything for years but I heard about the Table Tennis from a friend in the village so thought I would come along. It's a lot of fun we all really enjoy it."

"I've had a new hip so I cannot do much activity but table tennis is great fun and I can just about manage it."

"It's really taken off and has become a very popular activity in the village. We have secured further funding to purchase a second table which is great news, thanks to Fit Villages for their support."
