We at The Mindful Life Group Charity are delighted to have now received funding from the Norfolk Community Foundation to provide free online mindfulness courses to support adults 65+.

We are hoping that this information could be circulated in a newsletter or email to your community.  I have a small poster if you think this might be helpful for communicating the message?

Here is some background information about the course:

The Mindful Life Group is offering online mindfulness courses that are fully funded to support older adults in Norfolk. The course is led by a clinical psychologist who is also a mindfulness teacher.

The course is based on the mindfulness-based stress reduction course developed by John Kabat Zin but has been adapted for this population.

We have had really good feedback from participants, and we have found that it improves peoples' attention and memory, as well as reducing loneliness, low mood, stress, anxiety and chronic pain. Many participants have found it simply helps them deal with day-to-day stresses.

We currently have two courses beginning in June which involves one weekly meeting online for 2 hours over 6 weeks with the option for participants to extend their practice with their group.

The course start dates and timings are as follows:
6th June 2024- 1-3 pm every Thursday for 6 weeks
10th June2024- 10am -12 noon every Monday for 6 weeks
Places are free but limited to around 15 for each course

Hempstead Defibrillator

Defibrillator


Pammie Wallis had the original idea for a village defibrillator and competed in the Prudential 100 cycling event to raise funds.
A big thank you is due to all those people who sponsored or donated. Significant contributions were made by the Village Hall Committee, the Parochial Church Council and the Parish Council.

The defibrillator is housed in a cabinet inside the old telephone kiosk near the Village Hall on The Street, Hempstead. The Ambulance Service has confirmed registration of the machine and signage has been added to the kiosk.

The Zoll AED Plus Defibrillator is ready for use in an emergency.

Hi, my name is Claire and I am one of the Community Connectors at North Norfolk District Council. We specialise in promoting and supporting groups and organisations across the District.
We strive to build links between services and people by connecting them to improve their health, wellbeing and the community spirit for residents of North Norfolk.
We can provide information about community groups, where you’ll receive a warm welcome and support or signpost you to organisations who can provide financial and emotional assistance.
The rising living costs are affecting us all, but we can help find local food hubs and warm spaces.
Maybe you are new to the area and would like to meet like-minded people, or perhaps you would like to start a new hobby or volunteer - we can help.
If you run a community or voluntary group, we can help you by providing support to recruit volunteers, find funding streams or try to encourage more people to participate.
Email me today at: claire.chapman@north-norfolk.gov.uk or call 01263 516147
