Winter Wellbeing gets a boost

Our Winter Wellbeing Festival took place at Islington Assembly Hall on Monday 20th March and was an opportunity for the people of Islington to find out more about health and wellbeing.
     Over 250 attended the Festival on a damp and blustery day, but the atmosphere inside the Hall was warm and upbeat. Throughout the event there were 20-minute taster sessions ranging from salsa line dancing, yoga, dancing and exercise to poetry and singing. There were 32 information stalls promoting Islington-based health and wellbeing organisations, many of whom offered things to make, quizzes or interactive opportunities.
