Ballymacelligott Health and Wellbeing committee aims to reach out to the wider community and promote a positive sense of physical and mental health. We want to include all members of our community from toddlers to pensioners! As a healthy club we work in partnership to build a stronger, more connected community which aims to recognise health and wellbeing as a core principle. We are a newly-formed committee and are always open to new voices and volunteers coming on board.
We have run a number of initiatives to date such as
- Yoga : Beginners and Intermediate
- Youth Mental Health workshop for parents (Jigsaw)
- Hall to 5km : social walking group
- Irish Life Walking Challenge
Community Walking Track
We are presently fundraising and about to begin the construction of a Community Walking track at the training pitch in Arabella. We believe that our community needs a facility that is accessible to all and which will promote a sense of belonging and wellbeing . It will encourage people to take a ‘social stroll’ thus forging relationships and helping to tackle rural isolation. We hope that it will encourage all age-groups to partake in a healthy, non-threatening activity that is free of charge. It will be a safe space off the main road and is conducive for buggies or wheelchair accessibility. We will be fundraising in the Autumn for lighting for the track. Anyone with ideas or input are encouraged to contact Oonagh O’Rahilly (087-7532949) or Joanne Long (087-6744334) or any club member
