5 Be Mindful !

Being more aware of the present moment, your thoughts and feelings, your body and the world around you,(mindfulness), contributes significantly to your own wellbeing. Being in a nice, warm, safe environment as well as being aware and caring about the environment around us helps us to be more positive. We can all do our bit to help improve things.

Why not do your bit by helping us with The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme.

Help us to help the environment by recycling your crisp packets. You can drop them off at our centres and we will do the rest. You can also set up a box at your local school, church, village hall etc and then bring them to us to send off.

Instead of ending up in landfill or worse, they will be recycled into shiny new things and for every KG that we send we receive points that can be converted into cash for local schools and charities. Want to know more? please contact us

Here are some more pop up initiatives coming soon:

  • Community Planting around the village
  • Community Litter Picks
  • Health & Wellbeing Information Days
  • Health Walks
  • Crafts, Music & Games Sessions
  • The Grow Together Allotment
  • Intergenerational Skill Swap Sessions
