New Year New You...

‘New Year New You’ at Bury St Edmunds Library

Bury St Edmunds Library are kicking off 2014 with a week of health, wellbeing and new opportunities.

The ‘New Year New You’ event will involve a week of information and engaging activities involving a range of local groups and organisations.

·         Monday 6 January - Mental Health Monday, involving information from Suffolk Mind, Alzheimer’s Society and Suffolk Libraries Mental Health and Wellbeing service.

·         Tuesday 7 January - Jobs and education with Job Centre Plus, West Suffolk College, Realise Futures and the National Careers Service.

·         Wednesday 8 January – Health and Fitness with Abbeycroft Leisure, healthwatch, Community Dental Care and smoothie bike and yoga sessions.

·         Thursday 9 January – Volunteering. Why not make a resolution to start volunteering in 2014. Several local voluntary organisations will be on hand to tell you what’s on offer including the Home Library Service which is looking for people to deliver books to older and disabled people.

·         Friday 10 January – Hobbies. A chance to start something new involving Bury Scrabble Club, Bury Sugar Craft and local reading groups.

·         Saturday 11 January – Green Living Day with a sustainable swap shop. Bring your unwanted gifts, clothes, toys and swap them for something else.

·         Sunday 12 January – Clubs and activities for children including pre-school music sessions from Tadpole Tunes, crafts and messy play with Little Squigglers.

There will also be a free teen drop in health clinic on Friday 10 January from 4pm to 6pm with information and advice from The Matthew Project, 4YP and Abbeycroft Leisure.

Jacqueline Samuel is enquiry officer at the library and is helping to organise the events. She said: “New Year New You 2014 follows a successful event last year. We want to engage with local people at a time of year when people are thinking about making a New Year’s resolution and might need a boost or some inspiration. Everyone is welcome to come along to as many of the events as they like.”

The event will be followed by the ‘Beat the Winter Blues’ campaign which will be run across Suffolk from January to March by Suffolk Libraries’ Mental Health and Wellbeing Project.
