Festival of fun and fitness coming to Harlow

WOMEN and girls in Harlow are being invited to attend the first ever This Girl Can Essex festival being held on Saturday 3rd February between 10am and 2pm at Stewards Academy, Parnall Road.

From hula hooping and HiiT to trampolining and yoga, the free festival will be a fun way to try out a range of sports and activities with the aim of encouraging girls and women to either try something new or take their first steps to becoming more active in a fun and friendly atmosphere.

The festival in Harlow, one of four taking place around the county has been organised by This Girl Can Essex ambassadors who will showcase some of the fantastic sports available in the local community, as well as delivering health and wellbeing workshops on coping with stress and women’s health.

Other taster sessions will include jazz, dancefit, boccia, pilates, yoga and even aqua aerobics. There will also be sport and leisure market stalls and the opportunity to get a free health check.

There are now over 350 This Girl Can Essex ambassadors across Essex who inspire women in their local community to get active, meet new people and have fun. The ambassador programme is run by Active Essex, the county sport partnership, and it is part of their ambition to change 1 million lives by getting Essex active.

This Girl Can Essex ambassador Kelly Harman said: “We are really excited about the first ever This Girl Can festival. We know that for many women, trying to get active can be really hard and we want to show them what is available on their doorstep and what a friendly and supportive community we are.”

Participants are encouraged to partake in as many taster activities sessions as they like. Sessions will be on first come first serve policy and can’t be booked in advance so we recommend that you arrive at beginning of day to sign up for chosen activities to avoid disappointment. Registration will open from 9.30am.
