South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) wants to see residents Get Active by trying hula hooping, yoga or even Giant Jenga.
Get SK Moving is a series of events focused on encouraging people to move more, taking place across the district in the first week of March and SKDC is inviting you to take part. The events are funded by the Government’s Welcome Back Fund.
All the events are designed with fun and family in mind, so you don’t need to be sporty to join in. It’s not competitive, it’s all about enjoyable activities and moving in whatever way makes you happy. You don’t need to wear any sport kit or Lycra and best of all – it’s free!
