GOOD NEWS - 8th February

To start this week's bulletin, some very GOOD NEWS of our own. We are thrilled to announce Healthier Fleetwood will be opening a new Information Centre this month.

Thanks to the terrific support of Regenda Homes, we are moving into their former office space at the top of Lord Street, opposite St Peter's Church, initially on a one-year rental we hope will be extended.

The premises will be used much as we did at our previous centre, kindly provided by Affinity Lancashire. You will find on display a huge range of posters, leaflets and information on the many Fleetwood-based groups, activities and events for health, wellbeing and community.

Steve Newsham, Regenda Homes Director said, "We are delighted to be working in partnership with Healthier Fleetwood. By welcoming them into our premises on Lord Street, we hope more people can access the support they provide.”

The official opening is on Tuesday 20th February at 10am and then our hours will be Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays: 10am - 3pm to coincide with the weekday Fleetwood market days. We'll look at additional days including some Saturdays once we're settled in and will also be sharing dates and venues for our drop-in sessions around Fleetwood.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

And it was great to see many of the local groups and inspirational residents at this week's Healthier Fleetwood Open Meeting, the first of the year.

With over 50 people attending and 30 speakers it was a very busy evening - a summary of the meeting will be included in a Good News Extra bulletin over the weekend together with contact details so you can all continue the conversations.

One topic we touched on was how to share everything that's happening, especially with those who don't use social media. We'll be launching the Community Connectors, a network of people who can distribute posters and leaflets, and pass on news to their family, friends, workmates or at the school gates, on the touchlines or down the gym. Look out for how you can get involved as a Community Connector.

Fleetwood Day, family-friendly entertainment and live music in Euston Gardens will be on Sunday 5th May.

The 'Wreck Trek' out to the Wyre Light with RNLI Fleetwood is on Saturday 1st June. Tickets on sale soon.
