Here at Home Instead Senior Care Altrincham and Sale, we are really interested in the five ways to wellbeing, having a positive effect on our lives. We know that the WOW guides are enabling people to reach a lot of the goals set out by the NEF

1. Connect with the people around you.

2. Be active - go for a walk step outside. Exercising makes you feel good

3. Take notice  -  be curious. Notice the changing seasons. Savour the moment, Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters to you.

4.Keep learning - try something new. Rediscover an old interest. Sign up for that course.

5.Give - Do something nice for a friend, or a stranger.

A great choice to kick start your wellbeing plan would be to visit Sale Moor Art Club

Liz from the Home Instead team did just this at the beginning of the week and really enjoyed popping in to meet the group, at Sale Moor Community Centre.

With a very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, the group is extremely friendly and runs weekly classes on Mondays at 10am, Mondays at 1.30pm and Wednesdays at 7.30pm.  Jenny is the informal class teacher, who supports and advises group members as needed. 

Club Secretary, Lesley Goodier, was explaining to Liz that all members are working on art works for display at the annual Sale Moor Art Club Exhibition, which is due to be held on Saturday 19th March at Sale Moor Community Centre, 10.30am-5pm.  This is the 36th year of the exhibition and is open to everyone, with refreshments available.  Art works can be viewed and bought.

Whilst there is currently a core of members and regular faces at Sale Moor Art Club, new people are always welcome to join.  For more information and details on class availability they can call Bill Blairs, President on 0161 9697159.    If you love to paint and draw and would enjoy the company of other art lovers, then get in touch!
