The Big List Directory: A new resource for exercise providers and advocates

A new resource has been produced by the Active Canterbury Network for exercise advocates and providers in the region - called ‘The Big List’ Directory.

This resource is divided into zones from Waimakariri to Ashburton and lists many classes and facilities that are particularly appropriate for older adults and people with long-term conditions. The Big List Directory will be updated as often as possible and get in touch if you spot any errors.
