Suffolk County Council launches competition to crown the county’s Most Active Community for 2015

This competition gives people the chance to celebrate the great work taking place in so many communities across the county.  Encouraging and supporting people to live active lifestyles in their communities is incredibly important because it keeps them healthy and independent in the short and long term. The awards are about recognising the fantastic work of communities right across Suffolk so whatever your communities are doing - whether it’s dog-walking, new walking or cycling routes, yoga, football or Zumba, please make sure that SCC’s Most Active County team are informed.


The county council wants to celebrate your communities and these activities are vital in helping the county council achieve Suffolk’s collective ambition of becoming the most active county in England.


The competition seeks out the most active town, small village and large village in Suffolk from 2015 and the winners are presented with an engraved plaque at a special presentation event in March 2016 as a permanent recognition of their achievements.  In addition, all entrants who make it through to the first round of judging will receive a “Most Active Community 2015 Finalist” certificate.


Anyone in the community can enter the competition either online at: or via telephone on 01473 260722  to request a paper application form.


The closing date for applicants is 5 February 2016 so please encourage your own communities to take part.
