Give your health a boost this spring.
What is Active April?
Now in its second year, Active April is about discovering new ways to get moving in Epsom and Ewell, exploring what the borough has to offer and taking steps to improve your health and wellbeing.
We’re fortunate to have so many parks, open spaces, and sports facilities on our doorstep.
Active April is a chance to try something new. You could enjoy a local walk, have a game of tennis, explore the borough by bike, try some of our new outdoor gym equipment or event join a local leisure centre.
