A Wellbeing In Action pilot scheme was launched in Gibbonsdown and a Network has been created.
The Gibbonsdown Network seeks to work together, help one another, share information, set up activities and discuss how health and wellbeing could be improved in the area.
So far, three very successful meetings have taken place and the Network shares resources and information via email and a directory. Two local projects have engaged with the Network; a garden project and an art project. Both found the Network a useful resource. The Network also welcomed a speaker from FoodVale to talk about healthy living and the need for a community cafe. The Network is also in the process of looking at interest in a health walk to be set in Gibbonsdown run by the local charity Valeways.
Funding for the pilot scheme came to an end on 31st May and GVS wish the Network all the very best for the future.
