Paths for All’s Big Fit Walk campaign

Posted on Updated on

The Big Fit Walk is now in its 14th year. Its aim is simple. We want to inspire communities across Scotland to come together for a walk to celebrate the benefits of being active. It’s about having fun and staying healthy, anyone can host or attend a Big Fit Walk during the month of June! The Big Fit Walk is a fun and social way to show people the joy of a short walk. Whether you are looking to showcase an area in your community, get your workplace or school more active, or recruit new walkers to your Health Walk, the Big Fit Walk is a simple and easy way to put short local walks on the map in Scotland. Paths For All provide Health Walk groups, community groups, workplaces, schools and others with free resources to organise their own 30 minute local led walk during June. From posters and invites to get people along to your walk to a guide on running a successful walk, our pack has all the resources you will need to make your Big Fit Walk a success!  To order your Big Fit Walk resource pack or download resources please visit: http://www.pathsforall.org.uk/bigfitwalk

Aberdeenshire Signposting Project is a free, confidential and non-judgemental service working throughout Aberdeenshire to help people find solutions to issues affecting mood and wellbeing. The Signposting Project helps people connect to services, organisations and community groups who can help address those issues. They help people overcome the barriers they face in accessing the help they need. Their new website is an excellent source of information about their services and contains everything you need to engage with the project – visit the new site at: http://www.signpostingproject.org.uk.

Please join us for a sandwich lunch prior to the meeting from 12.30 onwards. 

It would be great to see as many of you as possible as we look to appoint new committee members for the Aberdeenshire ADP South Community Forum.

Sadly, our chair Jean Henretty and our secretary Kirsty Greenhowe have both announced that their period of commitment to the South Forum committee has come to an end and that they will stand down at this meeting. I am sure you will all join me in thanking them for all their work and input over the past year and wishing them well for any new ventures.

This means the South forum committee will as of May have 2 vacancies, the chair position and the position of secretary. We encourage any interested forum members, and in particular community members, to consider this great opportunity to take up a role within the forum committee and to be actively involved in shaping the work of the forum.

If you would like to stand for our committee, then please contact kirsty.forrester@aberdeenshire.gov.uk  no later than Friday 21st April 2017.

If you require more information about these positions before 18th April 2017 then please get in touch with Tanja.Mehrer@aberdeenshire.gov.uk .

Also, if you or anyone you know requires transport to the meeting please get in touch and we will see what we can do!
