A quarter of all adults in England fail to do enough physical activity to beneﬁt their health, whilst 12.5 million people do not raise their heart level for more than half an hour per week
17% of premature deaths in the UK every year are caused by inactivity, costing £7.4 billion annually. Levels of inactivity are placing an unsustainable burden on already strained resources

This partnership is branded Most Active County.
