Get Active Roehampton

Go, Go Roehampton

Around a thousand residents from Roehampton and the surrounding areas gathered at the Downshire Field, Roehampton on Saturday 1 September for Wandsworth Council’s Get Active Roehampton Festival, organised by Wandsworth Council’s Regeneration Team in partnership with Enable Leisure and Sport.

The event was a huge success with live music performances, mouth-watering food and appearances from local companies including housing developers, Redrow and Regenerate Youth.

The sport and activities area showcased many of the activities available to residents. This featured appearances from Knights Community Gym, Roehampton University, Putney and Roehampton Boxing Club and Rosslyn Park RFC.

Free taster sessions from Get Out, Get Active, a project designed to offer people with and without disabilities the opportunity to participate together. Residents were asked to feedback their views on what activities they would like to see in the Roehampton area as well as promoting current sessions they support or run in the area.

Cllr Steffi Sutters, Cabinet Member Community Services and Open Spaces says: “Thanks to everyone who came out to the Bull Green to enjoy the festival, which rounded off a highly success summer of Get Active Wandsworth events. Get Active Wandsworth has always been one of the highlights of the year, and this year’s decision to take it on the road around different parts of the borough has meant even more people got involved

“We were especially pleased to get feedback from local people on how we can help them be more active, and to get their thoughts on the Alton Estate regeneration plans”
