Welcome to Sopwell

Active Local is an initiative from the Partnership, which focuses on a target area within each of Hertfordshire’s ten local authorities. Through discussions with St Albans City and District Council, we identified the St Albans District in Sopwell and through our collaboration with community groups and organisations; we have learnt (and continue) to better understand the area. We are concentrating on the people and places within the area to design and deliver opportunities that are accessible, affordable and appropriate for all members of the local community, and work to encourage people to keep active.

One way we hope to achieve this is through an established group of interested parties and individuals from the area. We value and take on board their feedback, concerns and thoughts about how Sopwell can be developed to provide more activity and opportunity for local residents.

We will be looking to deliver our Fit, Fed & Read and Sporting Chance programmes in the area alongside other community driven projects to support all audiences across Sopwell to be more active.
