XPLORER- back for summer 2020

Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for children and families this summer - Monday 27 July to Sunday 30 August.

It’s educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore picturesque Herschel Park to find dinosaur markers on trees, lamp posts, bridges and gates.

Families can enjoy using this map to complete the navigational challenge. You simply need to find the 15 markers, - numbered circles on the map, then at each marker identify the dinosaur that is pictured!

To take part, simply downloaded the map and instructions, then head to Herschel Park and go Xplore!Xplorer logo.

Programme - 6 Jan to 5 April 2020 - postponed

All face to face Active Slough activities have been postponed until further notice.

Guidelines on levels of physical activity

Updated physical activity guidelines have been issued by the four Chief Medical Officers (CMOs) of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The UK CMOs draw upon global evidence to present guidelines for different age groups, covering the volume, duration, frequency and type of physical activity required across the life course to achieve health benefits.

A programme of sport and physical activity!

Regardless of age or ability there’s something for everyone.

The Active Slough team aim to be the inspiration behind a healthier lifestyle for the local community through supporting local sports clubs, organisations and groups in delivering local sport and physical activities for all ages across the town. Our aim is to aid the development and enhancement of new and fun play, sport and physical activity opportunities all over Slough.

Active Slough run a wide range of sport and physical activity sessions including football, dance, yoga, seated exercises, boxercise, cricket and many more, in partnership with clubs and organisations across the borough.

Almost everyone knows sport and physical activity is good for them, and most would like to do more. We need to make that an easy, practical, attractive choice, especially for people who tend not to take part in sport or activity now: women and girls, disabled people, those in lower socio-economic groups and older people.
