A special event to showcase health and wellbeing services in Withernsea attracted over 120 people. Stalls from a huge range of public and voluntary groups included oral health promotion, health trainers, sexual health information, Humberside Police, carers' support, the Big Local, diabetes support, Macmillan and many more.
Held at East Riding Leisure centre in Withernsea, visitors were encouraged to have free health checks and find out about their body composition using Boditrax. Sports activities like curling, boules and chair volleyball were also on offer, encouraging people to enjoy gentle exercise. 100% of attenders said they would be keen to go to a similar event.
Tracey Burton, oral health practitioner at City Health Care Partnership CIC and one of the organisers of the event said, “We are delighted that so many Withernsea residents came along to the Big Healthier Holderness event and found it both enjoyable and informative. It’s the first time we have held an event of this type and we hope it’s the first of many.”
