Happy days are guaranteed for older residents of Hertsmere with the launch of six fantastic free events designed to encourage health and wellbeing. The roadshows of interactive, therapeutic and recreational wellbeing events are being delivered by the Hertfordshire Support Me in Life Engagement Team and are run by Crossroads Care. Happy Days is a free six week programme of events held once a week for two hours and includes activities such as ceramic painting, horticultural activities and cake decorating. The first six Happy Days sessions will take place in nearby Borehamwood and have been carefully designed to promote engagement with meaningful activities that are personalised, energetic, educational and fun. Funding for the scheme is being provided by Hertsmere’s Public Health Fund (PHF). Further events will be run elsewhere in the borough in due course. Hertsmere’s PHF is allocated by Hertfordshire County Council and provides financial support to local voluntary groups and organisations to improve health and wellbeing for residents. Councillor Brenda Batten, portfolio holder for leisure, health and culture at Hertsmere Borough Council, said: “We are delighted to be supporting this programme which encourages older people in the borough to stay active and to connect with their peers.
