On Tuesday 24th April 2018, the Occupational Therapy Team at Callington Road Hospital held a Wellbeing Fayre in the grounds for service users and staff. They were supported by other colleagues from CRH including the Art Psychotherapies, the Bristol Active Life Project team (BALP) and physiotherapy staff. Charlie, our ever popular PAT (Pets as Therapy) dog also joined us for the afternoon.
The Fayre was based on the theme of the Five Ways of Wellbeing (WoW):
The activities on offer tried to reflect these values as much as possible. For more information about WoW, click here.
Amongst several other activities, there was dancing, adapted tai chi, a circuits class, a message tree, tortoises (with babies!), and cake decorating. The North Somerset Bird of Prey Centre brought owls which people enjoyed meeting, and appreciated our regular visit from the Avon Wildlife Trust. New this year was a ‘learn to knit’ tent which proved very busy and productive!
Despite the weather being rather grey, there was a good turn out with positive feedback from service users and staff. It was a good opportunity to have conversations about well being and for people to try something new.
The Occupational Therapy team would like to thank everyone for their support; it was a great event!
