An NK Wellbeing Day which took place in Metheringham on last week was enjoyed by over 70 people of all ages. The event was the first in a series organised for this year to encourage people to be active and get creative, and inspire them to find out about the opportunities to improve their health and engage with the arts in the district.
They follow on from a number of similar events held last summer and autumn, organised by the Partnership NK Our Communities Group working with 1Life. Many residents and visitors enjoyed these events and the Partnership NK ‘our communities’ team is keeping these great days going in 2016, but with the added benefit of other groups getting involved to give visitors a wider offer of experiences and advice.
At the Metheringham event children enjoyed a climbing wall, and obstacle course provided by NK Outreach while the more adventurous learned to use an aerial training hoop with our Dance Team. We also led crafts sessions which encouraged people to use collage and other techniques to put their own designs onto photographs of local buildings, whilst people of all ages enjoyed an exercise to music demonstration from Vitality, who provide classes for the over 60s in the area. Visitors to the event were also able to find out more about a range of groups and activities in the area such as NK Social Strollers, as well as upcoming events including North Kesteven Walking Festival, and Spires & Steeples.
The next wellbeing day will be held at the newly refurbished One NK centre in North Hykeham during half term on Fri 3rd June, 12 – 4pm.
