Self-improvement is a big focus this time of year with ‘doing more exercise’ and ‘losing weight’ being amongst the top New Year’s resolutions for 2018. I highlighted the historic underfunding for sports facilities in rural areas back in 2014, and have since fought for our fair share of funding in Westminster.

After holding a series of meetings with the Chief Executive of Sport England, I was able to secure £250,000 in 2015 for Fenland District Council for a three year project to drive participation in sport called Active Fenland.

Active Fenland is offering a 10 week running course in Chatteris from 10th January, designed for beginners to reach 5k. This is completely free of charge and a great opportunity for those who want to take up running this year. To book your space, email:
