Now's the Time Roadshow

Tuesday 25 March will see the launch of a two-week Now's the Time roadshow taking place across Thamesmead, encouraging residents to get active at a venue near you for just £1!

Whether you are interested in Zumba™, football, cycling, walking, jogging, swimming, boot camp, tennis, fit club, gym classes, netball or badminton sessions, Now's the Time is offering it all as part of a three-year, Sport England funded project in partnership with Trust Thamesmead, London Borough of Bexley, Royal Borough of Greenwich, Peabody and Gallions Housing Association.

The London Borough of Bexley’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Community Safety, Cllr Don Massey said; "This is a really exciting project for Thamesmead. The team behind Now's the Time have involved local people from the start to make sure it provides the kind of activities they want, in venues that are easily accessible and at times that are convenient for them.

“It really is an excellent example of a community focussed project that also has the benefit of positive long term health effects. I hope the Thamesmead community continue to show their enthusiasm as the project gets underway."

Cllr Peter Kotz, Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Cabinet Member for Cultural and Creative industries, said, “Taking part in regular physical activity has so many benefits for everyone’s health and improves our overall feelings of well-being.

“There’s a really varied activity programme taking shape, with a strong focus on offering lots of informal, fun ways for local people to take part.

“I think this approach will be critical in helping people develop a feeling that physical activity is something that is relevant to them, and something for which they can find space in their busy lives.”

The Now's the Time roadshow schedule is as follows and will offer everything from information about the activities taking place over the next three years to free lifestyle checks. Join us on either Saturday and take advantage of our free taster sessions too.
