Kent & Medway’s Everyday Active Conference 2019

Our annual conference took place on Tuesday 15 October at the Kent Event Centre, with more than 150 people in attendance from across the sport, physical activity, health, education, community and voluntary sectors. During the day delegates heard from Public Health England and Sport England on their approaches to tackling inactivity, while there was also the opportunity to hear briefing presentations from 12 different organisations that are providing innovative and life-changing physical activity projects across the county.

The 2019 KUDOS Award was also announced at the conference, with Tunbridge Wells Hockey Club winning for their TW Flyerz project. You can view films of all three of the KUDOS finalists’ projects, including the winning project, at

During the conference there was an “active quiz” to be completed throughout the day, with answers to the quiz found throughout the conference venue. Congratulations to Danielle Lock, Justine McAvoy, Gabrielle Kay, Ben Ryder, who were the winners of the quiz!
