Back to Activities

Kings Cliffe Active provides sport and recreation facilities, and supports a wide range of different activities organised for residents of the village and surrounding area.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • they have a range of activities for all ages which are good for physical and mental wellbeing;
  • they support / host groups which bring members of the community together for important social interaction, helping to address loneliness and isolation;
  • they develop and deliver new facilities, activities and events in response to identified interest and need from the local community, helping to develop a sense of belonging to a place.
