Get Melton Moving

Get Melton Moving is a new campaign which aims to support residents to lead a healthier lifestyle by working together to increase physical activity levels.

We work together with all of the brilliant groups, clubs, instructors and businesses within Melton Mowbray and surrounding villages to help you achieve your goals. Whether that is getting active for the first time, returning to activity, or finding a new activity for your regime!

New Virtual 'Around the World Challenge'

Melton Borough Council are encouraging local residents to get active throughout March 2021.

Residents can sign up to the Around the World Challenge and be part of helping the Borough of Melton log enough activity hours to walk all the way around the world.

Get Melton Moving's new challenge is completed as a community, with everyone's individual activity sessions being combined together.

Anyone can get involved; and you can complete activities you already enjoy doing, or try something new, for example; Zumba, walking, cycling and yoga, to name just a few.

You can take part as an individual or family, and you can also contribute hours towards your local club or group to be in with a chance of winning a prize for the following categories:

  1. All individuals and families who meet recommended physical activity levels* each week will be entered into a prize draw (£50 Melton Sports Voucher)
  2. Individual to complete the most activity hours (£50 Melton Sports voucher)
  3. Family to complete the most activity hours (£50 Melton Sports voucher)
  4. Club or Group to complete the most activity hours (£100 Melton Sports Voucher)

Winners will be announced on Friday 9th April on the 'Get Melton Moving' Facebook Page.

You can submit your activity hours at the end of each week or at the end of the month. You will have until Sunday 4th April to submit any activity hours you completed between 1st March - 31st March.

*Recommended physical activity levels can be found in the UK Chief Medical Officers' report - https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/physical-activity-guidelines
