Alconbury Weald residents embrace new activities


Alconbury Weald has been designed with health and wellbeing at its core. It is also part of the Living Sport’s Active New Communities initiative, which encourages people to make positive choices and take up sports and activities as they settle into their new home.

Living Sport is one of a number of partners that Sport England is working with, and providing funding through the National Lottery, to help people to stay active – particularly those most vulnerable to dropping out of sports and fitness activities, such as women and girls. The latest sports groups to be established at Alconbury Weald are the Netball Club and Alcon Falcons running group.

New or existing groups at Alconbury Weald can apply for a grant of up to £250 to help fund projects that will bring together and benefit the community.

Supporting healthy and active lifestyles at Alconbury Weald is a core part of my role and the Community Chest has been set up to help residents establish new sports and community projects. With Coronavirus restrictions lifting, we are hoping to have many more activities and events – from new and existing groups – that will bring together and benefit our thriving community.”
