The Community Health Mela (or Fair) is a friendly, festival with entertainment and activities.
The day centred on a series of “Streets” set up in the City Centre. These “Streets” allowed a wide range of Health & Wellbeing activities to take place under the following headings
A key element of the day was the “Health Olympics”. An opportunity for visitors to have a Health MOT with appropriate advice and signposting.
We worked with local groups and organisations in the weeks before the event to encourage involvement including work with local schools.
Brampton & Longtown Rotary Club also worked with several local sports/exercise groups to arrange for a number of activities to be scheduled during the day.
The event allowed all visitors to have a family day out to enjoy, learn and pick up useful tips to lead a healthy, enjoyable and long life.
