Active Alton

Alton Town Council's campaign to encourage the community to engage in sport and physical activity.

Our mission statement: To champion and increase participation and engagement in local sports and activities, across all ages and abilities, in order to improve health and the quality of life for the community of Alton.

Sport and Physical activity can help to improve overall wellbeing of residents by improving health and self esteem, as well as contribute towards economic prosperity.
