Forever Active programme is a winner

Getting active is great for your health so the project team for East Herts Council's Forever Active East Herts (FAEH) programme were only too happy to get out of their chairs and go up on stage at a sports awards evening in Hertfordshire last month.

Against stiff competition from the length and breadth of Hertfordshire, Mekhola Ray, Claire Pullen and Nigel Farren in the council's housing and health service were delighted to clinch second place in the community project of the year category at the Hertfordshire Service to Sport Awards 2017.

Held at the university in Hatfield, the award was presented by Sky Sports Grand Prix commentator David "Crofty" Croft.

Forever Active East Herts (FAEH) offers a packed programme of gentle activity classes in village halls and community centres across East Herts for the over 50s who are ready to take the first step to better health.

Eric Buckmaster, executive member health and wellbeing, said: "Being recognised across Hertfordshire for all the work we've put into FAEH is very satisfying. And even more satisfying is that more than 1,700 people are taking part in 57 weekly classes and boosting their health."

FAEH is funded by East Herts Council, Sport England and partners including local GPs and Wodson Park in Ware.  Go to www.eastherts.gov.uk/foreveractive to find a class near you. Or call Nigel on 01992 531695.
