Get Leicester to the moon

Walk to the moon this summer - to celebrate 50 years since the first moon landing on 20 July 1969, we want Leicester to walk the 478 million steps (or 238,857 miles) to the moon.

Leicester’s Moonwalk launched on 1 June at the Riverside Festival, and is due complete with a celebratory event at Victoria Park on Wednesday 21 August.

To take part simply record the number of steps you take between 1 June and 21 August and let us know how many steps you did by;

  • Sending us an email
  • Use the hashtag #LeicesterMoonWalk on your social media, drop us a message on Facebook.
  • or pop into your local library or children’s centre.

So come on – make every step count and let’s get Leicester to the moon!

Get up and go

Get up and go is all about encouraging children, young people and their families to be more physically active during the summer holidays and beyond. Activities will take place across the city between 15 July and 23 August.

Investment and improvements

Cossington Street Sports Centre

Cossington Street Sports Centre has recently re-opened significant investment and improvements. The swimming pool area, toilets, changing rooms and main reception have all been refurbished. We received £75,000 towards these improvements from Sport England as a part of the Swim Pilot project. Cossington Street has a large six lane, 33 metre swimming pool, a small fitness suite and a three-court sports hall.
