Representatives from a variety of organisations  joined us at Oxhey Library on 29th November 2011 to provide information, advice and guidance about health related matters.  Many people came to take advantage of the opportunity and spoke to representatives from the following:

Chair Based exercise

Groups from ASCEND and Northwick Day Centre took part in the chair based exercises led by Carol from CQZone.  They had great fun learning how to improve their flexibility and strength.

Online Health Checks

Some of the Northwick Day Centre group then went on to learn more about health information on the internet by joining library staff for one-to-one online health checks.

Mystery Juice

Many people enjoyed trying the juices at the Juice Bar sponsored by the Co-op in South Oxhey, and they also entered the mystery juice competition.

Health Walk

The Countryside Management Service were promoting their walks in the area, and 9 people took part in a walk taking place as part of the Health Matters event.

Baby Bounce and Tasty Tales

Smaller people were also able to take part in finding out how to be more healthy.  There was a Baby Bounce and Rhyme session to teach parents and carers some rhymes with actions to do with their children.  Food themed stories and craft were offered to pre-schoolers in Tasty Tales story time.

Study and sport

Youth Connexions Study Support Group also took part in the day.  They tried the juices from the Juice Bar and had a go at different games on Wii Sport on the electronic whiteboard.
