Active Lichfield and park events and activities
Active Lichfield and Getin2it sessions
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have temporarily put all of our Active Lichfield and Getin2it sessions on hold. This includes activities such as walking cricket, boxing, multi sports and more. Our monthly Active Lichfield cycle rides, which were set to start at the end of March, will also not be running until further notice
The play area will reopen from Saturday 4 July.
Beacon Park's Ranger Station has re-opened and golf, foot golf and disc golf are available. Equipment is available to hire, but we recommend that you bring your own and use the hand gel (which is available) before and after play. Please do not remove the flags on the golf course while you are playing.
We have cancelled upcoming park events and volunteer activities.
There are a number of events and activities that were due to take place in Beacon Park, which are organised by others, that have also been put on hold. Please check individual organiser’s website for more details.
We are sorry for any disappointment caused, but the safety of our participants and staff is our main priority. We are continuing to encourage everyone to follow Public Health England and NHS guidance and will be reviewing future events as the situation progresses.
Shortbutts Park fitness station
We cancelled the official opening of the new fitness station at Shortbutts Park, which was due to take place on 28 March 2020. The exercise station has been finished and will open on Saturday 4 July.
It’s important that we all keep active for our health and wellbeing. From going for a walk to heading out for a ride, as long as you have no symptoms and do not live with anyone who has any symptoms, are well and follow social distancing guidelines, getting outside can really help with clearing your head and staying active.
Take a look at our healthy at home suggestions, including exercises and running routes.
