Being social is a good thing for your mental health. When you have a healthy mind, you are more likely to get out and do things. This means getting some exercise, breathing fresh air and interacting with others. It’s also been proven that it can improve your lifestyle.
This week we had Andy Ames from the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust pop by and show everyone how to make seed bombs! Andy enjoys supporting social prescribing initiatives that help connect people with nature. Andy brought the outdoors, indoors. A great deal of fun was had by everyone in what turned out to be one of our most attended drop ins to date!
Roger, who is a pilot in our Cycling Without Age service, also made an appearance. He took out Adam and Steve for a ride and they certainly seem to have had a brilliant time.
As we head into summer, we’ll be offering a lot more rides on our trikes in both Hayling and Southsea. Keep and eye on our social media or website for more.
Our drops ins take place once a month in two locations. Hayling Island, the last Wednesday of the month and Emsworth, the last Friday. They are available to patients from Hayling Island and Emsworth surgeries.
