Parish, Town and Community Councils' Conference

Join us on Friday 26th April 2024 from 10am - 1pm at our Parish, Town and Community Councils' online conference.

On Friday 26th April from 10am-1pm Herts Sport and Physical Activity Partnership (HSP) would like to invite you to join our Parish, Town and Community Councils' online conference. 
This online event is free to attend and will focus on Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire’s mission priorities to increase physical activity levels for older adults, in order to reduce the risk and effects of long term health conditions and preventing falls.  

The World Health Organisation states that almost “500 million people will develop heart disease, obesity, diabetes or other Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) attributable to physical inactivity, between 2020 & 2030, if urgent action isn’t taken.” 
Therefore, it’s never been more important to promote the knowledge and understanding as to how our communities can contribute in helping its residents to live longer, healthier and happier lives, through the power of physical activity.  
The conference will be joined by: 

  • Professor Sir Muir Gray, knighted for his services to the NHS and national leader on the Live Longer Better Revolution, who will share how residents can be enabled to regain lost ability, improve physical and mental wellbeing and make an even greater contribution to society. 

  • Hertfordshire’s High Sheriff Annie Brewster who will discuss her theme ‘Sport For Good’ for her year in office (2024/25) 

  • Richard Sutcliffe, director of Funding4Sport, will share the exciting FREE bid writing service available to all councils to fund inclusive physical activities provisions in the community. This offer has been funded through Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire. 

  • Herts Sport and Physical Activity Partnership will launch Live Longer Better in Hertfordshire Hubs and share how Parish, Town and Community Councils’ can become one and the benefits associated with becoming a Hub. The success stories of those that have established themselves as Live Longer Better Hubs will also be shared.
