The Great Christmas Takeaway by Active Tameside

Published: 24th November 2020

*applications now closed*

Have a meal on us this Christmas – we are offering free takeaways to Tameside families on the following evenings:

You can choose to have your meal delivered during the following one-hour time slots; 5pm-6pm, 6pm-7pm or 7pm-8pm.

Menu options

Families with children will also be given a selection box as a surprise on the night.

All meals will be prepared fresh at our community cafes and will be delivered cold in microwavable containers for you to heat at home. This is for food hygiene safety reasons. Written instructions for re-heating will come with each meal bag.

We will have five vans delivering across all four Tameside localities, serving up to 250 meals, with over 75 stops each night. Meals will be delivered by our staff, who will be volunteering and wearing their Christmas jumpers.

My family experienced the Hyper Bowling last week. My children absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop talking about it, it was such great fun & good how any age can win. I was impressed by the price and how clean everywhere was…

The staff! I’d still use Active Hyde’s gym if the facilities were rubbish and the price was high. There is always a cheerful person on hand to provide help and advice, both on site and on the phone.


10/10 great facilities and location. Excellent instructors and friendly staff.


The gym and reception staff are very friendly and knowledgeable, always happy to assist… I would highly recommend the gym to anyone who is looking for a friendly, professionally run gym with a great atmosphere that caters to all ages and abilities.

I am grateful to the staff at Tameside Wellness Centre for understanding my difficulties, especially since they are invisible. But believing and supporting and being kind to me has made me more determined to continue with my passion for life and remaining active as best as I can…
