The Kia Oval, Kennington, London
APSE is delighted to return to The Oval cricket ground for the 2020 Southern Sports and Leisure Services Seminar. Physical activity is an important aspect of life that should be encouraged whatever age you are. In this seminar we will be looking at the different ways that local authorities can drive and increase physical activity in all of their residents, whether urban or rural.
Topics at this seminar include Three Rivers District Council’s Play Rangers scheme, designed to get children active in a fun and accessible way. At the other end of the age range, we will learn about Go Active Gold, an initiative to encourage the over 60’s in rural areas to live a more active lifestyle.
Sports England will be sharing with us their “We Are Undefeatable” campaign, aimed at inspiring and supporting people with long-term health conditions to build physical activity into their lives. We will also be joined by APSE’s Debbie Johns, who will be sharing with us ho leisure services are performing across the country.
We look forward to welcoming you to this sporting destination to explore with like-minded colleagues the continuing challenges that local authorities face whilst trying to encourage a healthy and active community in their area.
