Hertfordshire Year of Physical Activity 2018

Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust has joined a number of other organisations ‘in support of making Hertfordshire the most active county’ in 2018.

One in five adults in Hertfordshire currently does less than thirty minutes of activity a week, which means they are missing out on a wide range of physical, mental and social benefits.

In response to this, Hertfordshire Sports Partnership (HSP), Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) and the ten Hertfordshire Districts and Boroughs have teamed up to launch Hertfordshire’s first Year of Physical Activity in 2018.

The Year of Physical Activity, which aims to make Hertfordshire the most active county, was launched at the ‘Fit for the Future’ conference hosted by HSP at the Fielder Centre, University of Hertfordshire on Thursday 23 November 2017.

How to get active with Herts and Middlesex and Wildlife Trust


If you would like to get out more and learn as you do so then come along to one of our many events. They are a great way to start gently moving. Our walks usually take place over a couple of hours, have a relaxed pace and lots of fantastic information from our expert Reserves Officers. We also have special events such as mindfulness in the woods, so you can look after your mind as well as your body.

Pick up a Go Wild events leaflet or look at our events here.

Volunteer with us

If you would like to meet other people or achieve something for your local area while you’re getting healthy, consider volunteering. The Trust runs work parties throughout the year; teams of people who get together and work to improve their local places for wildlife. Tasks range from holly clearance, to hay cutting and wildlife surveying.

Have a look at our volunteer page here or speak to one of our Reserves Officers when they are out and about to find out more.
