We are dedicated to helping you take every opportunity to enjoy the sessions that we offer. With this in mind, we have carefully considered what we can reasonably expect of each other.

This statement is for guidance only. It is not a legally binding agreement between you and us and does not create any obligations which you or we must meet.
We’ve all had to adjust to a different way of living in recent months and your We Move She Moves sessions will also have some changes. Whilst sessions have been suspended the team, venues and instructors have been working hard to create a safe environment for you to come back to. From the feedback we received from the WMSM survey we know many of you are excited to return to classes and that for a lot of you the amount of physical activity you have been doing has changed over the last few months. We also know from your feedback how important cleanliness, social distancing measures and the support of the instructor is and so all these elements will be considered with our sessions.
There will be a phased restarting of classes as each of the sessions operate at different venues, have different equipment requirements and different space requirements and so we need to make sure we follow Government guidelines to keep you and the instructors safe. As and when start dates for classes are confirmed the information will be uploaded to the class timetable. We’ll include as much information about each session as possible to give you an idea of what to expect when you return as all the venues we use will have different procedures in place.
To give you an idea of some of the procedures which will be in place:
The health and safety of our residents is our number one priority, so we have taken the difficult decision to suspend our We Move, She Moves programme for the time being.
This means that we will no longer be running sessions across the borough until further notice.
We Move, She Moves is a movement to get women and girls in Hertsmere more active, more often and having fun in the process. There are lots of activities taking place each week. We have something to suit all ages, abilities and fitness levels.
We apologise for this and hope to be back in the community soon.
Please see below ways to keep active at home, now more than ever it is important to keep fit and healthy.
Stay safe everyone,
The We Move, She Moves Team
Hertfordshire families can now sign up to the new Family Centre Service which is now fully operational.
The new service will bring together Children’s Centres, Health Visiting and the School Nursing Service to deliver a shared purpose for families from pre-birth through to 19 years to have the best possible start in life and throughout childhood.
Hertfordshire County Council commissioned three providers to support the new service; Barnardo’s, One YMCA and InspireAll will deliver the Family Support Contracts (pre-birth to 11 years). Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust will continue to provide the contract for Health Visiting and the School Nursing Service (pre-birth to 19 years).
For more information on the new Family Centre Service, and to register, please visit the Family Centre website
The family centre service can help before your baby’s born, right through to when they want to play and get messy.
Anyone can come along, whether you’re coping fine or having a struggle.
You don’t have to pop in to a centre – check out our parent’s survival kit with info and advice you can trust.
Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level.
From those who have dropped out of the sport they love due to serious injury, to those who believed they had hung up their netball trainers many years ago, it really is for everyone.
Women the length of the country have begun playing the game of Walking Netball for the fun, laughter and camaraderie the social session brings, as much as the health benefits on offer. It can give those who feel isolated an outlet, provide an activity for those who don’t deem themselves fit enough to run anymore and offer a stepping stone for those looking for a pathway back into netball.
Coming soon to St Margaret’s School Sports Centrem Merry Hill Road, Bushey WD23 1DT – Tuesdays 12-1pm £4 (STARTS 23RD APRIL 2019!)
Just Talk is a multi-agency campaign, steered by young people.
In 2017, a group of professionals from various agencies in Hertfordshire came together to discuss the issue that current mental health services, projects and campaigns were better meeting the needs of girls than boys.
As a result of this meeting, extensive research and consultation took place with teenage boys across Hertfordshire.
The Just Talk campaign was born.
Coordinated by the Public Health team at Hertfordshire County Council, partners have given their time and expertise to ensure that the quality resources and information available here, and the direction of the campaign, meets the needs of young people.
To find out more visit the website for lots of resources and information.
Yoga in Potters Bar is cancelled this morning – Friday 1 February. Pilates in Borehamwood is still going ahead.
