Feel Good, Move More Zone

This zone is dedicated to showcasing organisations that provide services related to physical activity. Maintaining regular exercise is a fantastic way to lose weight and improve your overall health and wellbeing. There are a huge range of benefits to exercising, from improving your mood to helping avoid life-limiting conditions. We will have organisations providing live demos to show us that physical activity can be fun and enjoyable. Bring your trainers or comfortable shoes to get involved in one of the many fun activities.

Feel Good, Eat Well Zone

This zone is dedicated to all matters regarding eating well. Maintaining a healthy weight isn’t just good for your physical health, it plays a vital part in your mental well-being too. A poor diet has been shown to be associated with medical conditions such as Coronary heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease and certain cancers etc. in this zone will have providers showing live demos on how to eat well, sharing recipe ideas and you can even have a go at making your own smoothie ‘on a bike’. The aim is to show you that eating well can be fun and enjoyable too.

Feel good, Be Social Zone

Socialising not only staves off feelings of loneliness, but also it helps sharpen memory and cognitive skills, increases your sense of happiness and well-being, and may even help you live longer. In this zone you get to see local talent being show cased, bring a blanket and some food for the picnic area. 

Feel Good, Stay Safe Zone

This zone is dedicated to all matters staying safe be it mental or physical. We have all heard the phrase ‘stay safe’ throughout the pandemic however, there are other ways we must stay safe. We have local organisations that will be around on the day to discuss safety. Look out for the many stalls be it; sexual health, domestic violence or the local police service.
