Active Bucks is a weekly programme of fun and inspiring activities taking place across Buckinghamshire; on days, evenings and weekends. It will continue throughout the year and new activities will be added regularly.
The Active Bucks project aspires to help all Bucks residents lead happier, healthier lives. Too many of us are not doing enough physical activity to benefit our health. This means we’re missing out on all the other benefits being active can bring, such as reducing our risk of disease and disability, becoming more independent, connecting with other local people, our communities, and improving our mental wellbeing.
The Active Bucks project will support more people to get more active, more often; with a particular focus on reducing the number of inactive people across the county.
Most importantly, you don't need to take up a sport or join a gym; any activity which makes you breathe faster and feel warmer, even gardening and housework, make a great contribution to your daily activity levels.
