What is Fit Villages?

Fit Villages is a well-established and popular project that makes a real difference to local communities by bringing people together to socialise, have fun and become more active.

The project, which is run by Active Suffolk and is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund, helps villages in rural locations to set up physical activity sessions by using village facilities such as community centres, village halls, libraries and playing fields. The project has already helped many villages across Suffolk to set up activities such as Pilates, Yoga, Table Tennis, Nordic Walking, Zumba, Badminton, Keep Fit, Walking Football and many more!

Watch how Fit Villages makes a difference to rural communities:
