MoveOut! billed as the MOST fun you can have after work in Southend!

Move Out!, a new programme which has been developed by Southend-on-Sea Borough Council, gives people the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with nothing but nostalgic fun and games!

When was the last time you did the egg and spoon race or played rounders? Always wanted to try Tai Chi or have a go at walking football but didn’t know where to go? Join MoveOut! and have a go next week.

This eagerly anticipated programme is led by Southend’s Public Health and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council’s Sports and Leisure team. The fun and informal sessions will be delivered in Priory Park by experienced instructors. Sessions start at just £5 for 6 weeks – that’s less than £1 per session, including all equipment!

Cllr Lesley Salter, cabinet member for Healthy Communities and Wellbeing, says: “We have been looking forward to the launch of Move Out!, and are excited to invite those living or working around the borough, to head to Priory Park either for the lunchtime or early evening sessions. This is all about having the most fun possible, trying new activities and reminiscing over those old games we played as children. You don’t have to be well-versed in the rules of the games, you don’t have to be a gym-bunny, and you don’t have to have specialist kit to attend. These sessions are open to all working-age adults, regardless of fitness level or ability. Come on your own, or come with friends.
“Please do let us know what you think of the sessions – we hope they can become an integral part of enjoying the outdoors in Southend, and if they prove to be popular we would like to roll them out to all our parks in Southend.”

Activities in July include: Egg and Spoon Race, Tug-o-War, Hula Hooping, Parkour, Health Walks, Thai Chi, Tone and Fit, Rounders, Bootcamp, Nordic Walking, Skipfit, Dodgeball, Tennis Games, Lawn Bowls, Chi Gung, Outdoor Yoga and more.

The free launch event is on 4th July 6-8pm – come along and join us in Priory Park!
