A community group has launched a month-long initiative to encourage healthier eating.

For this month, the Big Worle team is backing the Walk a mile in May initiative by teaming up with the newly-formed Food Club, providing tips for better mental health, as well as combatting social isolation by putting on various events and activities for local people.  

The group is encouraging people to connect by filling in a 'count me in card’. This is a chance for people to express their ideas and priorities for the local area, as well as telling the Big Worle team all about their skills and interests.  

Big Worle is looking to get its residents more active and connected by working with North Somerset Council to train up some local people to be walking leads.

There are two drop-in sessions being run at the Big Worle Hub in Preanes Green tomorrow (Friday) from 1-3pm and Tuesday from 1-3pm.

Big Worle is in the process of revamping its website, planning lots of post-restriction events and activities such as a coffee morning combined with colouring session, a tabletop sale, return of the craft club as well as some other exciting activities.  

In 2012, the Big Worle Project was awarded funding from the Big Local Programme, supported by a Big Lottery Fund investment and managed by Local Trust.
