Get active to promote your own physical and mental wellbeing at this fun event!

That’s the message from the team in Healthy Prestatyn/Rhuddlan Iach and Vale of Clwyd Mind. Who are working with Artisans Collective to stage a fun ‘Health4All’ event on Friday, 14 October. In and around Prestatyn Old library on Nant Hall Road.

Prestatyn Dementia Community are looking forward to being involved on the day, including representation from Mind Music.

Whatever your age or circumstance there will be an opportunity to try out and get involved in activities with the ‘feel good’ factor.

Would you like to get involved with a choir, strum a guitar or beat some drums?

You can expend some energy in a dancing or walking group or enjoy armchair aerobics.

Make use of your spare time through volunteering opportunities or growing vegetables at a local allotment.

Make friends and learn skills through Men’s Sheds. Find out more about learning opportunities at local libraries or college.

This and much more will be available for you to test as part of a fun filled activity day.

Chris Stockport GP and Clinical Director at Healthy Prestatyn Iach said: ‘Physical and social activity is key to both mental and physical health. We hope that this event will encourage local people not only to enjoy the day but to get involved in enjoyable activity on a regular basis.’

Phil Williams, Director of Vale of Clwyd Mind said: ‘It is well known that physical activity can have major benefits on mental wellbeing. This event could be a real boon for local people. Especially as it is being staged during World Mental Health Week’.

Anyone can come along and join in the fun.
