Health and fitness were top of the agenda at the One You Haringey Health Day at Chestnuts Park.
Residents were introduced to a range of free health services available in the borough and invited to sign up to the One You service, which offers support to lead healthier and happier lives.
Throughout the day, members of the public were able to learn about health and fitness as well as take part in a number of activities including football training, a tennis taster session, and a boot camp style exercise class.
The community event on Saturday, July 1, also featured stalls from many local services such as Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, Haringey Walks, Haringey Recovery, stART Haringey, Haringey Advice & Shine Haringey.
Commissioned by Haringey Council, One You Haringey is delivered by health and wellbeing experts Reed Momenta.
Sabrina Kerr, Health & Wellbeing Manager at Reed Momenta, said: “One You Haringey would like to thank all the residents that came along to the Health Day.
“It was nice to see so many resident taking the first step to making a change by getting involved with the activities available on the day, and speaking with the One You team about making small but significant changes to their lifestyle.
“We will continue to work with the community and the residents of Haringey to make Haringey Healthier.”
Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Finance and Health, Cllr Jason Arthur, said: “One You Haringey gives residents support to take control of issues that can be damaging to their health. It was great to be at the Health Day and get a taste of all the different activities and support on offer in the borough. One You is all about making the right help available and encouraging people to make valuable, and potentially life-saving changes.”
Anyone who signs up to One You Haringey can access a range of free One You health services, including: a 12 week weight management course; physical activity sessions; support in reducing alcohol intake and stopping smoking; and – for participants aged 40-74 – free NHS health checks to help reduce the risk of developing avoidable health problems. The programme focuses on helping people to make better choices in a friendly and supportive environment.
