Get online to get active

Swindon Advertiser: Wiltshire Council corporate director Maggie Rae Wiltshire Council corporate director Maggie Rae

A NEW ‘one stop shop’ website for all sporting and physical activity information in Wiltshire is now live.

As part of a Legacy for Wiltshire, a Wiltshire Council-led partnership which aims to encourage people to keep fit and active, the new Active Wiltshire site, www.activewiltshire.org.uk, provides local communities with details of a wide range of sporting and recreational activity currently available across the county.

Groups and clubs also have the opportunity to raise their profile and increase membership by being listed on Active Wiltshire.

Jonathon Seed, cabinet member for leisure, said: “We are passionate about sport and leisure in Wiltshire and this website will help local communities to get involved in sports and activity regardless of age, fitness level or their budget.

“Part of Wiltshire Council’s business plan is to help people lead healthy and active lives. The launch of the Active Wiltshire website supports our aim to be a county that actively encourages, provides and enables positive activities for people.”

Maggie Rae, corporate director, added: “The Active Wiltshire website will be a fantastic, free resource for residents across the county and I would encourage everyone to make use of it.”
