Active Communities is a new concept to reduce inactivity run by Buckinghamshire Council for wards in Aylesbury (Aylesbury North West) and Wycombe (Abbey; Booker; Cressex & Castlefield; West Wycombe).
Sitting down for too long is also bad for us. After 20 minutes sitting our bodies start to slow down. This affects our muscles, blood flow and heart rate. It can make us feel bad.
Active Communities aims to help every member of the community to be a little more active particularly those who:
- do not like or play sport
- are not interested in physical activity
- sit down for long periods
- spend lengthy periods indoors
- are unable to stand
Active Communities is about working together to improve the wellbeing of all.
From May 17th 2021, you are part of an Active Community!
