Ely’s first Health and Happiness Day planned for this month

posted in: Featured, News | 0

Try a new form of exercise, sample a mocktail and learn about healthy living at East Cambridgeshire’s first ever Health and Happiness Day.

The day, planned at empowering residents to make healthier lifestyle choices, will take place at Ely Country Park on Sunday, September 25, from 11am to 3pm.

Organisers from East Cambridgeshire’s Health and Wellbeing Partnership hope the free event will act as a one stop shop for people to access information from  local sports groups, organisations and businesses that may inspire them to take the first step towards a better lifestyle.

Advice will be on hand regarding numerous topics, including healthy eating, lifestyle choices, exercise, relaxation and mental health. People will also be able to access NHS services, such as programmes that support residents to lose weight, stop smoking or cut down on alcohol.

Councillor Joshua Schumann, Chair of the East Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Partnership said: “We are very excited to be launching a fantastic new event to help local residents.

“Health and Happiness Day brings together all of our aims as a partnership, as well as supporting East Cambridgeshire District Council’s objective to ensure that the area continues to be a place where people want to live.”

Part of the park will be sectioned into zones for different exhibitors. This will include free taster exercise classes provided by local sports groups and alcohol free ‘Mocktails’ sold by local producers.

With a variety of stallholders set to attend, the partnership hopes that their flagship year should be a resounding success.
