Help us to make Rother active!

The sports event Be Active returns to Rother this summer – and we want to urge local sports clubs and providers to take part.
Be Active will be held on the lawns by the De La Warr Pavilion, in Bexhill, on Sunday, July 9, offering people the chance to try out a new sport and see the range of activities on offer in the district.
The event is held every year, organised by Active Rother, the Rother District Council-led partnership which encourages people to improve their health by getting active.
Organisations and clubs which would like to showcase their activities are being urged to make sure they don’t miss out by registering their interest by Friday, May 26.
Here’s what Tony Leonard, district council executive director of operations, had to say about the event: “Be Active is now a well-established event which draws hundreds of people to Bexhill seafront.
“The event offers the ideal opportunity for sports clubs and groups to let people see what they can offer and sign up potential new recruits.”
Sessions offered last year included running, martial arts, zumba, charleston, chair-based activities and multi-sport activities for children.
Providers can run a stall offering more information about their organisation, hold a demonstration of their sport or run an activity allowing people to take part.
Any group interested in taking part can find out more by emailing [email protected] or calling Adrian Gaylon on 01424 787583.
They are asked to indicate whether they’d like a stall, run a demonstration or activity, including any space or equipment required.
