A community festival is coming to Knowle West – and it will support everyone to become more active, whatever their age and ability.
From 7th – 12th July, Knowle West Together, a group of local organisations including KWMC, will be running Filwood Gets Fit. The week will include some special activities, including the ‘Run to Knowle West’ on 8th July and a ‘Dot to Dot’ walk on 12th July. It will also celebrate the activities that are already happening in the BS4 area – from sports teams and walking groups to gardening and children’s clubs. Many groups will be offering free or reduced-price ‘taster’ sessions.
Why should Filwood Get Fit?
Our physical health can have a big impact on our quality of life. According to the Council’s latest Quality of Life Survey (2012), levels of physical activity in Filwood are lower than the city average. The number of households with a smoker is higher than the city average too. We want to help to change that for the better – we hope that by doing something active we’ll all feel healthier and happier.
