Staying Well ‘Dip Your Toe in the Water’ Information Event

The Warley Staying Well Steering Group held yet another successful health promotion and information event at Halifax Academy Primary School. The themed ‘Dip your Toe in the Water’ afternoon at staying positive and motivated was attended by over 70 local residents, highlights included gentle exercise with Sue Watson from High Five over 50s group and an active Tai Chi demonstration from Marsha and Dave from Tai Chi Tigers.

Other agencies who attended were West Yorkshire Police Crime Prevention, Better Living Team, Better Lives, The Phoenix Shed, SAFER Team, West Yorkshire Fire Service and Age UK.

To finish the afternoon on a ‘High Note’ were the talented Halifax Academy Singers.

The Staying Well project works one to one, with people who are isolated or lonely and these ‘Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes’ events have been successful in reaching even more people.

The Staying Well team is moving throughout the area with the view to working alongside community groups/churches to deliver fun and informative sessions to local people. For more information contact Hayley Conlon 01422 392767
