Residents in Appleby have been invited to a 'health and wellbeing day', where they can find out more about how they can remain stay fit and independent for as long as possible.

The drop-in event will take place at the Public Hall, Boroughgate, Appleby CA16 6XB from 10am to 2pm.

A number of organisations will be in attendance to provide information and answer questions. They include Age UK, Eden Carers, Eden Independent Living, Alzheimer’s Society, Appleby GP Surgery, Dementia Friends, Give A Day and others.

This event for residents follows on from the ‘listening event’ which was held earlier this year where a number of local organisations came together to discuss the emerging health and wellbeing needs of the community in Appleby.

We’re keen that as many people as possible come along to the event, join us for a cup of tea and learn more about the range of support and services which they can access to help keep them fit and well and improve their day to day lives.”
