HEALTH and wellbeing sessions are on offer for Mirehouse and Corkickle residents.
A series of drop-in sessions will take place focused on nutrition, health, fitness, vaccinations, skills, learning, money management and advice for over 55s.
Sessions will take place on the second Wednesday of each month starting on Wednesday, November 13 from 12 noon until 1pm at St Benedict’s Rugby Club, Newlands Avenue, Mirehouse.
The first session will be held in partnership with Cumbria Police who will be offering crime prevention advice. Home Group will be offering housing advice and Cumbria County Council’s public health team will be supported by staff from Mirehouse Pharmacy to offer residents a free health and wellbeing check-up. This includes blood pressure and Atrial Fibrillation (AF) testing. Refreshments will be provided.
The sessions have been developed following feedback from residents at a recent community consultation event run by the Well Whitehaven initiative.
Well Whitehaven is an initiative designed to improve the lives of those living in the Mirehouse and Corkickle communities.
Well Whitehaven officers will be on hand to provide advice, guidance and support on any services, activities or projects planned for the community.
