Let the children be entertained and Get Active at the Suffolk Show

Suffolk Sport encourages all of Suffolk to get active. Being physically active is a great way to start on a lifelong healthy lifestyle and research also shows that physically active children perform better academically.

To encourage children and young people to be more physically active, Suffolk Sport will be hosting the Get Active Zone within the Suffolk Sport Village taking place at the Suffolk Show. The zone will be offering the younger visitors of the show small sided sports such as a treasure hunt, golf, cricket, badminton, archery and fishing.
 
James Payne, Children and Young People Officer at Suffolk Sport said: “We hope to have a fantastic couple of days at the Suffolk Sport Village, as we are really pleased with the activities ready to engage with the younger people attending the show. There will be lots of smiling happy faces taking part, and I am sure it will prove to be an excellent celebration of children being active.”
 
Sport and physical activity also promotes communication skills, team working, self-esteem and confidence - essential life skills, which will be promoted within the Suffolk Sport Village to all young people.
