Days until Move More in May 2025:


This fantastic community initiative returns to Bassetlaw for the 6th year, with bigger and better plans for 2024.

This year our aim is to collectively move the equivalent of once around the planet which is 24,901 miles.

Everybody Welcome

Move More in May is for people of all ages, sizes shapes and abilities.

Our aim is to support an increase in movement, boost wellbeing, and get people out into the community, having fun and connecting with each other.

Remember everyone that shares their progress with us will be entered into a free prize draw. There will be a variety of different prizes such as an air fryer, swimming passes, days out and much more!

There is something for everyone to get involved in, whether you’re a fitness fanatic, enjoy pottering in the garden, moving more in your wheelchair, dancing, whizzing about on a skateboard, seated exercise, or simply taking five minutes out of your day to a get a bit more active.

Being more active is scientifically proven to support positive wellbeing as this boosts what are known as our ‘happy hormones’ in our brains.

Spending time outdoors is proven to reduce levels of stress and anxiety. So why not join us throughout May and move your way to a happier and healthy life?

Remember,  it doesn’t matter how you move, just that you do it a little more often!
