St Helens Wellbeing Week
St Helens Wellbeing Week takes place this year between the 14th and 20th May, and there’s over 70 fun, free and exciting events taking place across the whole borough, all related to health and wellbeing.
Wellbeing is more than just physical health, it’s about your relationships with other people, learning and trying new things, giving back to other people and taking notice of the world around you. Wellbeing Week provides you with plenty of opportunities to get out, try new things and meet new people.
Here is a taster of just a couple of free events that you can come along to:
- Wellbeing Carnival kicks off Wellbeing Week on Monday 14th in Church Square - come down find out more about wellbeing and join in with some fun activities such as zumba, belly dancing and yoga
- Picnic in the Park at Victoria Park - sample the great outdoors and participate in a park walk, treasure hunt, belly dancing and enjoy massages and team activities…don’t forget to bring a picnic!
- There are two wellbeing walks to join in with on Thursday - one takes in Taylor Park and Red Rocks, whilst another is a guided tour of the Dream sculpture by an ex-miner
- Healthy in St Helens returns to the Church Hall on Friday and Saturday. Come along for free health checks and advice, plus there’s fun for the whole family including fitness and dancing demonstrations
There’s help and support for people looking for employment, techniques to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing, and there’s also a whole host of enjoyable classes to get active such as zumba, badminton, football, tai chi and break dancing. You could also try something new with a variety of taster sessions including floristry, computer skills, history, arts and crafts.
All events during Wellbeing Week are completely free to attend, and there is something to suit people of all ages and all tastes – go on, give something a go!
