Health & Well Being

Health & Well Being

What is it?

A fantastic project we ran for 5 years! The project came to a stop in September 2018 due to our demand in the community from neighbours wanting help at home. We created a safe, nuturing and encouraging environment for all ages to grow and become friends, our wonderful volunteers were finding themselves to be challenged more than what they thought with the developing needs of our lovely neighbours. Although we all found it sad to close the group the need for our devoted team members in the community is at a high.

Village Services knows that you need a healthy body and mind no matter how old you are and aimed to achieve both in our weekly Health and Well-Being groups. Aimed to give members an opportunity to socialize and improve their fitness, these classes are open to everyone. Bringing our community together, whatever the age.
