Happy Healthy Minds mental health and wellbeing event at Ayscoughfee Gardens


By Spalding Reporter


The sun shone on a group of happy, healthy-minded people at Spalding’s Ayscoughfee Hall and Gardens on Saturday.

About 350 people turned up for a day full of activities aimed at spreading the message of how important it is to have good mental and psychological health.

The event called Happy Healthy Minds was organised by South Holland District Council to mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week.

Alison White, one of the organisers, said: “The main purpose of the event was to spread the message about good mental health and to make people aware of the services available to them in the area.”

Visitors of all ages came to the event where they had a range of activities to choose from, including body balance, yoga and stretching exercises, arts and crafts, gardening, horse therapy and relaxation workshops.

Alison said: “We have lots of events throughout the year and we always spread the news on social media and by dropping off leaflets.”

Happy Healthy Minds was repeated at Ayscoughfee Hall and Gardens on Wednesday when bright sunshine helped the cause of promoting Mental Health Awareness Week.

This years' theme was Body Image - How we think and feel about our bodies. Wednesday’s session helped guests to stay in shape and grow in self-confidence.
