There will be a Health Fair in Tarvin on Wednesday 11th November in the Methodist Church from 2.00 to 3.30pm. Entitled "Getting Ready for Winter" the event will provide an opportunity to meet a wide range of local services and find out how they can help during the winter months. The afternoon will be of particular interest to people of limited mobility or those who care for, formally or informally, people who find the winter months particularly challenging.

The event has been organised by Snow Angels, a social enterprise company who are involved in the creation of 'good neighbour' schemes. They have been supported by the pastoral teams of the two main local churches.

The initiative was started by the Parish Council who brought together a number of interested parties to explore the possibility of creating a scheme in Tarvin that would support the frail and elderly, possibly during the winter months but with the long term intention that it might provide round the year support. Health professionals are very supportive of such community based initiatives that might reduce the number of emergency hospital admissions and ease the problem of 'bed-blocking'.
Helping older people to live safely in their own homes is regarded as an excellent way to maintain good physical and mental health and is the option that most people would prefer.

However, as such schemes rely on volunteers to provide the help, and must be managed in a way that is supportive and safe for all concerned, they do take time, care and funding to establish. It is the intention of Snow Angels to look at the situation in Tarvin at the Health Fair to see if such a scheme is viable.

The Parish Council hopes that if there are individuals within the Parish who feel that they would like to get involved, they will come along to the Health Fair and make themselves known to the those organising the event.
