The first in a series of events to promote health, the arts and physical activity has been hailed a success.
Almost 200 people attended the free open access Well-Being Day in Billinghay, arranged by the Partnership NK ‘Our Communities’ group. Children enjoyed outdoor activities with a climbing wall and a mobile skate park, while the more adventurous learned to use an aerial training hoop with the artsNK Dance Team. Arts and crafts sessions encouraged people to use different crafting techniques to put designs onto photographs of local landmarks and buildings, while walkers could join the NK Social Strollers or try an exercise to music demonstration for all ages from Vitality.
The partners that attended included the NK Arts Partnership, NKOutreach, Vitality, artsNK Dance Team, Lincolnshire Advice Network, NKDC Health Trainers, Environmental Health and Wellbeing Service, NK Social Strollers, and the Volunteer Centre services.
Emma Batty, vitality manager, said: “We all had a fantastic day and the weather was certainly kind to us.
“We were delighted with the record number showing their support for this free community event, and our thanks go out to everyone who took part.
“We’re now looking forward to the next event at Welbourn on August 18.”
