Green Circle Survey

Green Circle

Thank you so much to everybody who completed our recent Green Circle survey. Your responses are really helpful in telling us how you use the Green Circle. 700 people completed the survey and our evaluation partners SERIO, are currently analysing the results. As soon as we have them, we’ll share them with you.

Inclusive Communities Badminton Tournament

Badminton Tournament

Following the exciting news just before Christmas that our Inclusive Communities work has received three years’ worth of funding from the National Lottery Communities Fund to continue its work in Exeter, we are also hugely excited about the first ever badminton tournament at Wonford Leisure Centre on 24-25 February.


The Inclusive Communities badminton group meets every Sunday at Wonford and welcomes people of all nationalities (and skill levels!), to join in.


Find out more about this event, and how to get involved, on our website.

Cranbrook Update

Jayne and Jeanette

Move More Cranbrook operates from the new town in East Devon, providing grants of up to £3000 to projects that aim to get the town’s residents more active. So far, the grants that we’ve provided there have gone towards a huge variety of clubs and activities, enabling people of all ages in the town to lead more active lives.  


If you have the seed of an idea that you think could make a difference to people in Cranbrook, why not get in touch with the Move More Cranbrook team to discuss? Read more about the Move More Cranbrook grants scheme on our website.

Sport England Update

Sport England recently announced that they’re going to be working with lots more places (up to 100) in a similar way to how we work at Live and Move. It’s exciting that the programme is being expanded in this way, and that more people will have the opportunity to be more active and healthier.  At Live and Move, we’re busy plotting, planning, and prioritising our work for the next five years with the aim of continuing what we’ve worked so hard on until now.


As soon as we know more about what the future looks like for us, we’ll of course update you. In the meantime, please bear with us and keep an eye on our website for further information.
