What we’ve learned from the Community Get Together at Hove Edge Bowling Club

Posted on Updated on

    

On Tuesday 13th of September, Staying Well and Focus4Hope, arranged an event at Hove Edge bowling club.  The aim of the event was to provide information to local residents of Hipperholme and Hove Edge on services are locally available to help them lead a healthier and happier life.

On the day the following groups and services attended; Hipperhome Christ Church, Memory Lane Cafe, Active Calderdale, Better Living Service, Invictus Wellbeing, Calderdale Dementia Hub, Vita Minds, Cromwell Bottom Wildlife group and our very own NHP Neighbourhood team and Sure Start Children’s centres.

All these organisations offer fantastic opportunities to meet others, gain support around dementia, move more indoors and out, access emotional wellbeing services, achieve a healthier weight, access excursions and other local events. Many of those we endeavour to publish in our online blogs to which you can sign up to.

We enjoyed refreshments and cakes.  Focus4Hope delighted us with their culinary skills providing delicious hot food of Vegetarian Chili and Sausage casserole, Crust and Crumb offered delicious woodfired pizzas made on the day.

As well as valuable networking, we had a unique opportunity to listen to a talk from West Yorkshire Police about personal safety at home, out & about and current scams.  The event concluded with a meditation session from Tai Chi Tigers, concentrating on breathing and gentle stretching exercises.

 

The Hipperholme and Hove Edge residents who came, gave our Staying Well workers very positive feedback, saying they enjoyed the day, as well as encouraging requests for more such events in the future. People signed up for various services and there was active interest in taking up Tai Chi, while West Yorkshire Police received numerous requests for home safety visits following their talk on crime prevention.

Thank you to all for your contribution into making this event a success and thank you to all who visited.
