Informative stalls, community engagement and a free climbing wall are all available at the upcoming Health and Wellbeing Roadshow organised and hosted by North West Leicestershire District Council (NWLDC) and Everyone Active.

The free event on Friday 23 February (12pm until 4pm), gives local residents, of any age, the chance to meet the people behind the services and find out more about what’s going on in the district. In previous years, this has been very popular, attracting over 200 people in both 2022 and 2023.

The Health and Wellbeing Roadshow is taking place at Whitwick and Coalville Leisure Centre and aims to bring together experts, professionals, and the local community to explore various aspects of health.

Visitors will get the chance to visit around 40 informative stalls that each offer unique expertise not only around health but anything that could influence day to day lives, such as the cost-of-living crisis, housing, education and employment, lifestyle choices and social opportunities. 

Councillor Michael Wyatt, NWLDC Portfolio Holder for Communities and Climate Change, said: “No matter if you’re concerned about your health or at the peak of fitness, the roadshow is free to attend for anyone.

“We hope this roadshow will empower individuals to make positive choices for their well-being and help to support a strong, healthy community.

“We have closed applications for anymore services after reaching maximum capacity. Thank you to all services that have signed up and I look forward to a successful roadshow.”
