Your Covid-19 Hero

We’re looking for somebody to officially cut the ribbon and open our shop on Saturday 19 June and we would like a Covid Hero to do it!

We are asking you to nominate someone you feel has gone above and beyond in the last year or so. This could be a key worker professional or a community ambassador who has carried out much needed charity and voluntary work.

This person will help cut the ribbon and be photographed on the day as well as receive a recognition prize and be mentioned on our social media channels.

How to nominate

Summer wellbeing

For many of us, the Summer months can bring  temptations of too much sun exposure, sweet treats, hay fever and other health woes – so lets think of Summer wellbeing as, happy body, happy mind.

What you eat, how you move your body, how much you sleep, how you relate to others, and how you deal with stress are just as important in the warmer weather. To get you back on track, take a look at our helpful ways to reassess your goals for the year and find balance again in your wellbeing.

The Wellbeing Package

Do you find you're comfort eating when stressed, anxious or bored? Don't worry, you are not alone.

We tend to crave sugary and fatty foods to make ourselves feel better, but in the long run it makes us feel worse.

Our three-session Wellbeing Package explores different areas of your health and wellbeing, including Emotional Eating, Diet and Nutrition and Physical Activity.

Our advisors are trained in ‘Emotional Eating’ and can help you understand why you crave certain foods; help you to recognise your triggers and barriers; and advise you on ways to stop this emotional eating roller coaster.

Get in touch for more information and book your first session today!

Men's Health Week

Men's Health Week 2021 (14-21 June) asks: How do we move forward?

Men's Health Week raises awareness of the health issues that affect men. Focusing on getting men to become more aware of health problems they may have or could develop and gain the courage to do something about it.  

Everybody's mental health has been challenged by the lockdowns and insecurities of the last year but even before the pandemic, men's mental health was a cause for concern. Let's raise awareness of the low number of men who seek treatment for depression, anxiety and other mental health challenges, it could save their life.
