No Gym? No Sweat! Free exercise classes for all

South Norfolk Council’s Leisure Team have recently launched a brand-new YouTube channel to help residents keep fit and active during lockdown. 

The Council’s 3 Leisure Centres in Diss, Wymondham and Long Stratton were forced to close in March, but the team have been busy creating free content to help inspire residents to try new ways of exercising and keep fit at home.

Over the coming weeks, the team will post Pilates, Yoga, HIIT workouts and much more on their South Norfolk Leisure channel.

Cabinet Member Councillor Yvonne Bendle, said: “Just because our residents can’t get to the gym, it doesn’t mean they can’t take part in exercise classes, we will be posting regular videos to help keep people active at home. There will be something for everyone on our channel, from people who are new to fitness, to those who are regular gym-goers. With new videos every week, we hope they will help motivate our residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle in these difficult times. Give our free classes a go and if you like the videos, don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube Channel.”

    To recognise this, the Councils have added five new categories to the awards, including Outstanding Employer, Business in the Community, Working Together, Business Resilience and Business Innovation.

    Businesses are invited to nominate themselves for an award in any of the 10 categories and residents can support their favourite business by nominating them as ‘Retailer of the Year’.

  • Leisure Centre achieves top rating in Covid-secure quest

    South Norfolk Council’s Leisure Centre in Long Stratton has achieved a rating of ‘excellent’ from Quest – the industry’s go-to scheme for quality assurance.

    The assessment focussed on the Leisure Centre’s recovery from the pandemic and its ongoing Covid-19 security measures. A range of areas were put under the spotlight including cleanliness and hygiene, how effectively the Centre was managed, the customer experience and community engagement. 

    South Norfolk Councillor Alison Thomas, Cabinet member for Better Lives, said: "The team at Long Stratton Leisure Centre have worked extremely hard to keep our customers safe during this pandemic and its fantastic they have received this top accreditation as recognition. It’s also an assurance to all our customers that they can continue to keep fit and healthy in a Covid-secure environment.”

  • Fly tipping will not be tolerated in Broadland or South Norfolk

    Two local councils are calling on residents and businesses to dispose of their waste responsibly, or they could face a hefty fine.

    In the last 12 months, Broadland District and South Norfolk Council have carried out 206 fly-tipping investigations, resulting in fines for businesses and residents who have broken the law and blighted the countryside with their waste.

    South Norfolk Cabinet Member for Clean and Safe Environment Councillor Michael Edney said: “We live in a beautiful part of the world and we want to keep it that way. Fly-tipping is selfish and harmful to the environment and wildlife, it blights our countryside and costs taxpayers over £50K a year to clean up. If you are caught fly-tipping, we will not hesitate to fine you.”

    Just this month, a mobile catering business was issued with a £300 fixed penalty notice for fly-tipping business waste in a lay-by near Diss. Not only did the owner have to pay the fixed penalty, but also had to pay for the waste to be removed by a licensed waste contractor. The owner was also advised on how to dispose of waste properly and legally in the future.
