Wellbeing event success
On Friday 15 July, we held an event as part of our We are Westcliff campaign to promote how important looking after our health & wellbeing is.
The event, which was completely free to was held at The Arc in Westcliff, with over 70 people visiting throughout the day.
The day consisted of free massages, advice and guidance on how to get the best nights sleep, make your own herbal tea, yoga mindfulness and so much more.
Local resident Lynn, who attended with her daughter and granddaughter commented, “It has been so good to come to The Arc to learn about how to relax and unwind. Even my young granddaughter got involved in the relaxation class and we all made fresh tea, something we would never have thought to do.
“I had no idea how stressed I was until I had my shoulders massaged. It has definitely been some much needed me time and we have all enjoyed it.”
The Adult Learning Team from North Lincolnshire Council were on hand to distribute therapeutic mindful colouring books and chat about the many specialist courses they provide at The Arc and at other locations.
Kerry Copson, Community Development Manager said, “Thanks so much to everyone involved for organising the wellbeing event at The Arc last week, it was great to see such a good turnout and lots of new and familiar faces visiting to get involved. A lot of planning goes into events like these so it's brilliant to see the hard work being worth the effort when they're a success like this one.
“Thank you to everyone who came along to the event, we can't wait for the next one.”
