Broomhouse Health Strategy Group - October Update

The autumn term is well underway with our regular sessions of Buggy Gym, Baby’s First Foods Weaning Group, and Chair Exercise and Walking Groups – we’ve had some lovely weather for our walks too. We have also just started a new Adult Cooking class for October/November.

Mindfulness has started again, this time at Whinpark Medical Centre. We alternate between Whinpark and Sighthill, the two local medical centres. The GP’s offer us a free room which is much appreciated and easy for people to access. We are also inviting our Mindfulness participants this coming Thursday for their session to be here in the BHSG office, where they can experience Thursday’s ‘Tasty Bites’ – our session with tasters and demos in the shop.

We are also open for Drop ins too – if anyone wants some advice, or a chat, on any health and wellbeing topic we will help if we can or refer you on to other organisations where appropriate. People can drop in whenever Jackie is free (please note that this is not a counselling or medical service).

We are consulting local people about ‘Changing our Name’. We are down to two names – either:

B.Healthier Together or B.Healthy

Please cast your vote via the poll on our Facebook page here.

We ended October with some spooky satsumas in the shop (looking like very tiny pumpkins…)
