Councillor Kika Mirylees Waverley’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services, Leisure and Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, said,

“We’re really thrilled about the fantastic range of activities that Everyone Active has planned to take place across the borough. We want to inspire our residents, young and old, to make the most of what their local leisure centre has to offer.

‘Getting active is not just a way to improve your fitness and overall health – it’s also a great way to relieve stress, improve your mental health & wellbeing and create new social opportunities.

“It’s also very exciting to welcome some international sporting heroes to the borough, and we hope they will inspire the next generation of local sporting talent to reach for the stars”.

David Love, area contract manager at Everyone Active, said:

“Having recently taken over the management of these four sites, it’s a fantastic way for us to engage with the local community and showcase all we have to offer.

“We’re pulling out all the stops to make it an unmissable event, from hosting a wide range of activities all for free to having sporting heroes such as Mark Foster and Colin Jackson come down to meet everyone – it’s set to be a fantastic day for all!”

Everyone Active was recently awarded a ten-year leisure contract with Waverley Borough Council.

The partnership will allow Everyone Active to build on the current leisure offering, focusing on fitness, while supporting the council’s vision for leisure across Waverley by providing attractive facilities to the whole community.
