Invitation to Thorpe Wellbeing event

Published: Friday, 17th March 2017

Top tips on staying happy and well will be available to all residents at the Thorpe St Andrew Wellbeing Fair on Wednesday 22 March, from 11am and 1:30pm.

The fair, which is hosted by Broadland District Council, will have representatives from over 15 organisations to provide information to local residents about what’s on offer in their area to keep them happy and well all year round.

Organisations attending the fair include Norfolk Carers, Clapham & Collinge Solicitors, Shelter and Norfolk Libraries.

Residents will be able to learn about support in their area which is available to them including advice on keeping active, money matters and independent care.

Broadland District Council’s energy team will also be on hand with tips on how to reduce household energy bills. It is recommended that residents bring their most recent energy bill to receive the most accurate advice.

A free slow cooker workshop is also on offer to some residents. Slow cooking is an easy and energy efficient way to cook meals and the workshop will show residents how simple and inexpensive these meals are to prepare. Residents will have the chance to try some new recipes and taste the results. 

The slow cooking sessions are free to anyone who is in receipt of means-tested benefits and is over 65 or has a long term health issue. All ingredients will be provided and participants will be able to take a new slow cooker away with them for free. 

Workshop places are limited; to book a place email energy@broadland.gov.uk or call 01603 430627. 

Visitors are welcome to drop in to the free Thorpe St Andrew Wellbeing Fair between 11am and 1:30pm at Roxley Hall on Yarmouth Road.  Free refreshments will be available to guests and extra parking can be accessed at ‘Merchants of Spice’.
