Hi, I’m Katherine and I’m the Everyday Active Champion for Dartford. I'm also the Community Partnerships & Engagement Lead for Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust. I have a real passion for this community and I want to encourage people to become more active. Here are some of the great activities happening in and around the local area. If you would like to talk about getting more active around Dartford, please reach out to me.
