Improve the health of local people by enabling accessible physical activity opportunities.
Facilitate an effective network of physical activity providers (instructors, volunteers, groups and clubs) to meet the needs of the community.
Friendly, approachable, flexible and reliable.

Lots of fun, working with older individuals, helping them get more active can be very rewarding. Great for CV.
