Wellbeing for Life is back this week as the annual Sports Fest event kicks off the summer holidays, with a full schedule of free wellbeing and physical activities.
Broadgate in the city centre will once again be buzzing for the annual event, featuring a wide range of FREE sports and wellbeing activities that are suitable for all ages and abilities from Tuesday July 25 – Sunday July 30th from 10am – 4pm each day.
The week-long event will be led by a range of community organisations and sports clubs. Activities will include cheerleading, judo, rugby, table tennis and goal ball are all on the sporty schedule for the week.
This year, the event will be delivered by Coventry City council in partnership with CV Life. Activities will also be hosted by a range of community organisations and sports clubs.
Residents can visit the Wellbeing for Life stall at this year's Sports Fest from Tuesday 25th – Friday 28th July and can make a wellbeing pledge, find out how to get your health and wellbeing in check, as well as find out more about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
The good news is people don’t have to do much to feel the benefits because the five ways are easy steps to follow to improve mental health and build wellbeing and kindness into daily life to help people feel good and function well. They are connect, be active, keep learning, give and take notice.
There will also be stalls offering free health and wellbeing information including Family Health and Lifestyles (FHLS), Healthy Lifestyles Coventry (HLS), Change Grow Live (CGL) drug and alcohol service, Coventry School Nursing team, and Public Health Service, along with Go CV services each day from 11am-3pm.
Each morning, there will be a quiet hour from 10am - 11am for those who wish to enjoy the sports and activities in a quieter environment.
