SOCIAL

Our wellbeing is greatly influenced by the way we connect socially. Loneliness is one of the great problems of our age and we will have lots of opportunities to make meaningful connections with others in our Community.

PHYSICAL

Probably the best understood of the different aspects of wellbeing. Being as fit as possible, within any physical constraints, will make a difference to our overall wellbeing.

MENTAL

There are lots of ways of improving our mental wellbeing, which interacts with the social, physical and spiritual. We are concentrating on particular activities centred on mindfulness and also nutrition.

SPIRITUAL

Helping to understand our place in the universe and our relationship with the divine.

Joining In

One of the best ways of improving our wellbeing is to join in with activities in our community. This builds our sense of connection with others and can be great fun. We are lucky to live in a community with a huge range of different things that we can get involved in. So why not drop in to the Activities Fair on Saturday 4th May 10:30am-1:00pm in the Saint Andrew’s Centre
