Supporter, Fields in Trust doesn’t just protect outdoor spaces – we love to see communities using them to be active and enjoy themselves. So we’ve teamed Have a Field Day up with Sport England, Sport Wales, Sport Northern Ireland and sportscotland for European Week of Sport! How? Plan some activity on your local FIT field between 7 – 13 September and we’ll reward you with a goodie box of medals and games as well as a special #beactive offer of t-shirts and water bottles for the first 10 events to sign up!
It doesn’t have to be a big event. Why not get a few people in the community along for an organised walk? Or get a local yoga or fitness instructor to give a class in the fresh air?
Or if you’re an exercise provider, why not move some of your classes onto your local FIT field and help the community #beactive?
From the very active to the less sporty, our outdoor spaces can help us be healthier and happier: we all feel better when we’ve had some time out in the fresh air. And it’s medically proven that a bit of outdoor exercise is good for you! Regular exercise helps strengthen and improve your physical and mental health:
up to a 35% lower risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
