There has been lots going on behind the scenes here at Get Active. Since September we have opened 3 new Active cares. Thatcham Park Primary, St. Nicholas Church of England Primary and Lent Rise School. We have had a great response from families for these active cares and we are excited to see them progress in the future.
We would also like to welcome our new starters who have started either as one of our office roles or at active care. We hope you have settled well and looking forward to progressing in your roles!

Black history and Breast cancer awareness month.
October is Black History Month in the UK, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years.
Black history month was first launched in 1980’s, where the aim was for the local community to challenge racism and educate themselves and others about British history that was not taught in Schools.
In respect of black history month, we have attached a link below for activities to learn and celebrate.
