At Eyemouth’s first-ever wellbeing week, starting next Tuesday, there will be a range of opportunities for people of all ages to get involved in.

Earlier this year, the Borders Navigator service was launched in Eyemouth, helping people to find their way to improved wellbeing by connecting them with opportunities within the local community, and the spotlight is being put on many of those opportunities during Wellbeing Week.

Research has shown that getting involved in activities such as volunteering and being more active and learning new skills can have a positive effect on wellbeing.

Over the five-day event, opportunities with many local organisations will be highlighted, including Connect (Berwickshire Youth Project), local volunteers, Health in Mind – Borders Navigator service, Berwickshire Housing Association, Volunteer Centre Borders, NHS Borders Healthy Living Network, Eyemouth Community Development Trust (Splash Project), Eyemouth Men’s Shed, Waymarks Consultancy and the fire service.

To take part, find out more, sign up and meet the friendly team, go along to the Splash at the Chill Space in Harbour Road and at the Co-op on Tuesday from 10am until 3pm.
