Keeping our community active

We love nothing more than getting involved in local events that inspire our community to get active.

We run regular annual events like the ones shown here and we’re always happy to chat about new ones.

Women on Wheels

Get on ya bike!

Sunday 9th July – Nowton Park

Women On Wheels (WoW) events are mass participation female-only bike rides, that put a strong focus on the fun, friendly and inclusive aspects of cycling, usually raising money for a local charity.

They are aimed at non-cyclists and existing cyclists alike, with routes of an achievable distance, and are open to all ages.

Sudbury Memory Walk

From Kingfisher Leisure centre

Saturday 25 May | From 11:00  |  Cost: Free

This free walk starts and finishes at Kingfisher Leisure Centre, Station Road, Sudbury, walking the beautiful Stour Valley Trail. The first walk will start at 11.00 with further walks planned to take place at staggered times.

There are 4 routes; ½ mile, 1 mile, 3 mile and 5 miles. The ½ mile distance was added to encourage families living with dementia to join the walk with their loved ones. There will be seats along the route to take a well-earned rest and a rest station at the ¼ mile turn around point.

All donations will be equally divided between two local dementia organisations; Decaf – a memory café in Sudbury which is part of the Bridge Project that provides an invaluable community resource for families living with Dementia and Hadleigh Dementia Action Alliance – who organise and support activities in Hadleigh to enable those living with Dementia to live well.
