ACTIVE Cheshire, a lead body for physical activity and sport, has moved into its new home in Winsford’s Wyvern House.

The award-winning charity focuses on tackling inactivity and improving health and wellbeing in Cheshire and Warrington region.

Their dynamic approach has already helped 71,969 people become more active more often this year.

Physical inactivity has been identified as the fourth leading risk factor for global mortality (six per cent of deaths globally). Cheshire and Warrington face an increasing challenge as approximately 22 per cent of people living in the region are classed as inactive.

These figures are becoming a cause for concern, as approximately 188,000 adults living in the area struggle to undertake at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.

Anne Boyd, Active Cheshire chief executive officer, said: “We are thrilled to be moving into Wyvern House in Winsford, and we hope that we will continue to positively drive levels of activity regionally.

“We see ourselves as a dynamic organisation and currently work with a wide spectrum of partners and stakeholders. By moving to Winsford, we hope to continue expanding our partner network, who are determined to get Cheshire and surrounding areas active.”

Through increasing the activity levels, Active Cheshire strives to reduce the risk of major illnesses, stress and therefore the dependency on public services.

Active Cheshire works hard to create an active workplace, encourage active design as part of town infrastructure, inspire kids to develop active habits in early stages of their lives, empower leaders as a way of promoting activity and improving mental health.
