Special health and wellbeing event at The Laverton

Westbury Area Board are hosting a special themed community event, ‘Health & Wellbeing in Westbury and the surrounding villages – helping ourselves, helping others’, on Thursday 9th October 2014 at the Laverton.

If you, a family member, friend or neighbour are concerned about their health or that of people they care for, then this event could help. Do you manage a local business or voluntary group who deal with customers? If the answer is ‘yes’, then the event will be of interest to you too.

The Health Fair starts at 4.30pm with a variety of stands representing local charities and organisations who are dedicated to supporting a healthy lifestyle. They will be on hand to provide advice, information, quizzes and much more, ranging from information about support for an older relative, help to shift a pound or two or simply take your blood pressure. A Dementia awareness session will provide an opportunity to gain an understanding about dementia and how you can use this in practical ways in your daily life. Having attended this interactive session you will be able to sign up as a ‘Dementia Friend’.

Members of Wiltshire’s Health & Wellbeing Board will present information about the new proposals to enable people to stay active and well and supported in their own home and their local community as long as they wish.

The area board will then take place at 6.30pm..
