Making everyday active in Tunbridge Wells

Mark Lawrence

Hi, I’m Mark and I am the Everyday Active Champion for Cranbrook and Sissinghurst. I have a real passion for this community and I want to encourage people to become the best versions of themselves. Physical activity has helped me to overcome some very difficult times and I am sure it can do the same for you. So please consider trying one of these fantastic activities!
