Health and wellbeing events to support North Wales community post-pandemic
EVENTS designed to promote health and wellbeing, charities and small businesses will take place in Ruthin over the coming months.
Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council (DVSC) has lined up online and in-person activities – held at the town’s revamped Market Hall – to support the local community post-pandemic.
Supported by the UK Government’s Community Referral Fund, they include four virtual health, fitness and nutrition workshops beginning today (October 6) with Elen Lloyd, a certified exercise and holistic lifestyle coach with the CHEK Institute, an award-winning education provider.
“I’m a working mother and farmer’s wife so life is always busy, but I believe in a holistic approach to health by moving, eating well and finding time for yourself,” said Elen.
“Over the course of the four sessions I’ll give tips on how to live a healthy and fulfilled life – which is more important than ever given the challenges of the last few years – using the ‘Four Doctors Method’ which covers diet, quiet, happiness and movement.
“These will be simple and realistic changes which could make a big difference to people’s lives, so I hope they will join me to find out more.”
DVSC recently held business development workshops for the county’s market traders and food producers and in the run up to Christmas the Ruthin Market Hall is to host family barbecue and pizza nights, a Wear It Pink cancer awareness coffee morning and a free Halloween disco.
There will also be regular meetings with Ruthin Town Churches, who unite people concerned about their futures and end of life, as part of their Grave Matters series.
Following the unveiling of a new partnership with Ruthin Artisan Markets CIC, which will continue to develop events and exhibitions at the Market Street venue, DVSC Chief Officer Tom Barham said even more will be done to improve the local offering for residents and visitors.
“Ruthin is a vibrant town with a strong sense of community, so we are delighted to announce these upcoming activities,” he added.
“And with the market itself now open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays we look forward to welcoming even more people and giving independent producers a platform to showcase their products.
“The Market Hall is the beating heart of Ruthin and with the plans we have for the rest of 2022 and beyond that looks set to continue for many years to come.”
