Who can believe we are already half-way through the Summer? It’s been a strange few months, so as providers, clubs and facilities reopen we have some top tips to get you back on track. We have loved watching the community come together with people taking part in virtual classes and sending us stories, so thank you! We also have exciting Energise Me news, if you haven’t seen already, our shiny new website is LIVE! So if you’re looking for ideas on how to be more active, or you want to support a family member, or perhaps you want to find out about our local projects, you can find it all here.
