Just this week Exeter’s council, battling off 119 other local authorities, have won the right to participate in a government initiative that vows to get areas of England more active. The initiative, titled Sport England Pilot Scheme, has committed to investing 100 million pounds across England, hoping as a whole to make the country more active. As Exeter active invocators ourselves – you can use one of our units as a gym! – we thought it’d be good to discuss this.
Rather than being a pot of money as most would assume, the scheme is run on the idea that local authorities will strategise a plan with Sport England to creatively implore locals to become more active.
The initiative didn’t target inactive areas – active, in this circumstance people who do more than 30 minutes of exercise at least once a week – there rather was a bidding competition. In actual fact, Exeter is the South West’s most active location. In this competition local authorities pitched as to why their areas should be involved with the scheme. Exeter’s council paired with local sporting communities, including Exeter FC, to argue why they’d be one of the best locations for such a project.
It has been said that Exeter’s presentation, riddled with facts and data, was very impressive, hence why they’ve been chosen. The local MP has said it was a ‘community effort’.
As of now, there is no plans in place. In the near future, the local authorities will begin planning how they can make the area as a whole more active with Sport England.
