Let's Get Moving for Less!

A one-stop shop for free/low-cost opportunities to be active within Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

Welcome to the Let's Get Moving for Less page, a one-stop shop for free/low-cost opportunities to be active within Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

As we all start to feel the financial pinch and assess our priorities, remembering the endless physical and mental health benefits that moving more offers us can be difficult, but stopping completely would be impactful on your overall wellbeing.

We've collated a range of ideas on how to be active, as well a whole host of free/low-cost activity sessions taking place locally, enabling you to still feel the benefits of being active throughout this difficult time.
