Get up and go

Selected from more than 750 applications, Havant Borough Council is one of only 21 projects nationally to receive funding from Sport England to help older adults get active.

The National Lottery funding from Sport England awarded Havant £147,000 to encourage residents aged over 55 to take part in physical activity with their family and friends.

Following local consultation, we have now launched the Get up and Go programme, piloting some exciting activities which provide those aged over 55 to take their first steps into activity and try something new to them.

Find out more about the activities on offer this summer by visiting the Get Up and Go Havant website or by following them on Facebook.

Havant Borough Council is working in partnership with Hampshire County Council Countryside Service, Hampshire Public Health, University of Portsmouth and local delivery partners to provide sociable and fun opportunities to take the first steps into physical activity.

Get up and go…. And enjoy something new to you!
