Active East Herts is a Community Sport Network that was re-established as of September 2017 with the aim to increase sport and physical activity in East Hertfordshire.


What is a Community Sports Network?

A Community Sports Network (CSN) is a network of local deliverers from a range of organisations and agencies, all with a contribution to make in the delivery of sport and physical activity. The CSN also enables non sporting organisations to gain from working with a range of sporting agencies in achieving their own goals.
