Staying Well community event outcome March 30th

Posted on

On the 30th March, our Lower Valley Staying Well Workers linked with Healthy Minds and Focus 4 Hope to deliver an event in Brighouse, showcasing local community provision as well as developing a chance for community consultation.

 

Community stalls included the Memory Lane Cafe, Our Place, Turning Point, The Space at Fieldlane, Rastrick Big Local, Salvation Army and their craft group, Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve, and a local Theatrical group.

Beside the stalls, a number of other people came to the event including the community champion from Morrisons in Elland, the Lower Valley Active Calderdale worker and the Lower Valley Better Living trainer.

The event took place from 11 – 2pm, with plenty of time for people to come in from the snow and have a lovely warming drink and a cake, take part in decorating heart shaped biscuits and painting rocks, talk to the many stall holders and discover how what is available in their area can enrich their lives.

Richard and Louise introduced the event in a fun, friendly way, and people relaxed and enjoyed themselves. A tasty sausage casserole and vegetarian chilli was provided by Focus 4 Hope, as well as fresh wood fired pizza from Alex at Crust and Crumb.

Once the food had time to settle, Marsha and David of Tai Chi Tigers got everyone moving.  The effect of gentle movement, tapping and breathing made everyone feel more relaxed and positively energised.

We have received positive feedback from the event with many participants saying they felt uplifted.
