Move more, feel great!

Throughout 2018 we’ve been encouraging Hertfordshire residents to get active. The Year of Physical Activity 2018 aims to showcase the range of activities that take place each week for people to socialise and join others to be active. Hertfordshire is also blessed with beautiful countryside and many parks to explore. To find a local park to get active in visit

The campaign, known informally as HertsYOPA18, has been following a format of themed months. We’ve had some fantastic themes including young people, older adults, walking, cycling, parks, families and women and girls and we’ve still got lots more left that you can get involved with, workplace wellbeing, celebrate sport and dance month.

Our friendly mascot, YOPA, is making his way around Hertfordshire to many local events, encouraging children and adults alike to get involved.


All activities are being promoted on social media. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to find out about events and activities taking place near you.
