What people say about MOVE
“Despite being 10-12 years older than most of the other footballers taking part, I was made to feel welcome and enjoyed being part of the group. It gave my mental wellbeing a boost and gave me something to look forward to at the end of a long week of study and work. Looking forward to Mars just play starting again later in the year” Staff member
Opens your horizons
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed participating in the MOVE programme in 2018/2019. It’s enabled me to learn a variety of new skills, from aerial arts to skiing, all conveniently located either on campus or with transport included. There’s a fantastic range of learn to courses and regular classes on offer and it’s great value for money!” Student
"The MOVE programme provides a great opportunity to learn new skills, meet interesting people and do something completely different! And all for a great price. I will definitely re-join this upcoming academic year!" Student
Gets you fit away from the desk
"MOVE provides a great way of keeping fit and active when you have a sedentary job. I attend during my lunch break, and have done yoga, Tai Chi and have joined a running group. I found a quote which says it all for me; “Fitness helps me think better, feel better, and move better” Student
"As a staff member who discovered MOVE in 2018, I have found taking an hour out of the week for Tai Chi, or trying out a new skill such as Archery, a great way to do something new and allow my mind to regroup away from the desk – I recommend it! " Staff member
"The Tai Chi classes are fun. We work on various movements followed by some relaxing meditation." Staff member
