In 2017, we unveiled our vision to change one million lives by getting people active in Essex.

Across the length and breadth of the county, we have some incredibly inspirational residents who have been adopting sport and physical activity to improve the lives of their own as well as inspiring others.

In our new blog, we will be sharing their stories and celebrating the positive impact of physical activity and sport.

Help us in sharing these stories and inspiring others #AE1inamillion
