Buckingham Update 

Welcome to the first edition of your Active Bucks newsletter, bringing you the latest news on activities happening in your local area.

We're really pleased to report that 142 different activity programmes will run across Buckinghamshire - a total of 3408 activity sessions will take place from May to September 2017! 168 activity sessions will be taking place in the Buckingham area alone!
 
The Active Bucks project is a really exciting opportunity for the County Council to make a real difference to the activity levels of our communities. All activities are aimed at beginners and designed to engage inactive people.


Our Community Champion volunteers will play a crucial part in ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Active Bucks project. We have recruited 19 Champions to date and our recruitment drive will continue throughout the life of the project. If you know someone who would be a great Champion for this project please contact Holly. Call 01908 622897 or email holly.skinner@active-bucks.com

The Active Bucks promotional campaign launches in early June, with an offer of free activity vouchers (for the first session). On registering for a voucher via our new website, residents will gain access to a database listing all Active Bucks activity sessions and thousands of other activity sessions across Buckinghamshire. Our new website will allow users to search for type of activity they want, at a time and location that best suits them.

We will send further details about the promotional campaign over the coming weeks. If you have any questions or require more information in the meantime, please contact a member of the Active Bucks team activebucks@buckscc.gov.uk
