Public invited to Community Well-Being Event in Belmont Hotel


Parents, young people, community groups and everyone in between are invited to a Community Well-Being Event taking place in the Belmont Hotel, Banbridge on Thursday 28th September.

Focusing on relaxation, fun and self-care, this event will also feature information stands with details on support services for drugs, alcohol and mental health.

Open to the whole community there will be guest speakers and interactive activities helping to educate people on the services provided by organisations within the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon area as well as improving access to these services.

Look out for signposting, advice, guidance, information and intervention as well as free health checks, colour breathing and mindfulness mediation workshops as well as goodie bags and spot prizes. Light refreshments will also be served on the night.

“This event will show how all of these organisations can work together to ultimately help those who need their support,” commented Councillor Maire Cairns, Chair of the PCSP.

“We would like to encourage people to come along, get involved, enjoy some relaxation workshops as well as getting some vital information and advice around these important issues. There will also be an emotive talk from Theresa Burke whose son sadly died as a result of taking drugs, in the hope it will persuade other young people not to get involved.”

The event has been organised by Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon and Newry & Mourne Policing & Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) in partnership with Southern Drug and Alcohol Communication Team Connections Service (SDACT).

It takes place on Thursday 28th September 2017 from 6.30pm to 9pm. If you are interested in attending this event please rsvp to by Thursday 21st September. For further information please contact 028 3831 2491.
