Move More in May

Get ready to Move More in May!

Move More in May is a fantastic community initiative coming to Bassetlaw next month!

The scheme is aimed at increasing our activity levels, boosting our wellbeing and getting people out into the community and connected.

Everyone of any age is encouraged to add their exercise efforts into a Bassetlaw-wide group to see how active we are together, whether exercising alone, in a team, or as part of a community group.

Dr Eric Kelly, chairman of Bassetlaw CCG said: “Move More in May is all about local people of all abilities and ages being more active, having fun and connecting within their communities. It’s about supporting positive wellbeing and embracing healthy lifestyles especially after the last two years of the pandemic.

“Whether you enjoy pottering in the garden, whizzing about on skateboard, seated exercise, moving more in a wheelchair, take a weekly spinning class or run marathons, we want to hear from you.

“Maybe you dance, walk your toddler in a pushchair, or simply take five minutes out of your day to a get a bit more active, whatever it is we’d love you to join with us and tell us how much you move!”

There are a number of ways to take part:

“Everyone knows the importance of regular exercise and we want to encourage as many people as possible in Bassetlaw to be as active as possible,” said Dr Kelly. “It doesn’t matter how you what form that exercise takes, just how much and how often!”

And Angela Dainty from BPL said: “BPL is once again proud to support the Better in Bassetlaw Move More in May initiative.

“After a challenging few years, it is fantastic to be able to encourage our communities to join together and improve their physical activity levels. Whether it be trying something new or returning to a previous activity our fun and friendly Your Space Leisure Centres have lots of activities and challenges taking place throughout May, further details can be found at www.betterinbassetlaw.co.uk.”

Move More in May is a joint initiative involving a wide range of partner organisations across Bassetlaw. This collaboration forms part of our work as a Bassetlaw Place Partnership.
