The long- established Fit Villages project led by the team at Active Suffolk has safely relaunched following the easing of the lockdown restrictions. The
return to the Corton Village Hall to deliver the Tai Chi session was a huge success and the team are excited to announce their return to other rural
villages across the county.
Chris Lawson, Project Officer for Fit Villages, Active Suffolk says:
"The return to Fit Villages was a really positive experience and the Tai Chi session in Corton was very relaxed. The instructor, Trevor and I worked
closely to ensure a safe return and regular, effective communication with participants ahead of the session ensured everyone felt at ease. This also
allowed us to minimise any necessary paperwork on the day of the launch, reducing contact and potential risk.
With the support of the village activator, Gill all equipment was thoroughly cleaned before participants entered the hall and chairs were spread out
to ensure social distancing was adhered to. Hand sanitiser was provided for participants and the session itself flowed and everyone really enjoy being
We would really love to hear from anyone else in the county who would be interested in setting up a Fit Villages project within their local community
so that we can continue supporting people across Suffolk to be active and reduce the risk of social isolation and loneliness."
