Waltham Cross is the Active Local area for the Borough of Broxbourne. In partnership with Broxbourne Borough Council, Jamie Townsend (Project Officer) has been working alongside community groups and organisations; focussing on the people and places in Waltham Cross and looking to design and deliver opportunities that are accessible, affordable and appropriate for all members of the local community.

Waltham Cross is an area full of opportunity with a diverse population and number of organisations and community groups already working here. We hope to work in partnership with these organisations and community groups to support and raise awareness of the current opportunities, alongside bringing new and exciting opportunities for people to be physically active. There has never been a more important time for people to be active and we hope that by bringing the community closer to the opportunities we can create a vibrant sport and physical activity offer.

The story so far:

  • £15,956 invested across 10 recipients via the Tackling Inequalities Fund
  • 2 new Easter Holiday activity camps for children in receipt of free school meals
  • Herts Cricket delivering Chance to Shine and Dynamos cricket programmes in Holdbrook Primary School
