Physical Activity Link Worker
Healthiest Town wants to support people to become more active as a way of improving their health and wellbeing. In summer 2023 we have employed Sheila Wilson to deliver a free and confidential one-to-one advice service for people (aged >16) living in Aberfeldy and Kinloch Rannoch to become more active to help their physical and/or mental health.
Walking offers a multitude of benefits, including improved cardiovascular health, increased energy levels, stress reduction, and enhanced mental clarity. Whether it's a leisurely stroll or a brisk power walk, incorporating regular walking into your routine can contribute to a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
We've tried to bring together all that is going on in one simple place:
Heartland Good Food Initiative
The Healthiest Town food project in Aberfeldy is dedicated to transforming the area into a thriving hub for good, local food. By encouraging more people to embrace real, local food, promoting local food production, and minimizing food waste, the project aims to create a healthier food environment. Through collaboration with local growers, businesses, and initiatives like the Community Larder, Handam, and Horizon Lunch Club, the project fosters stronger connections within the community and facilitates partnerships between local food stakeholders. Under the umbrella of the 'Heartland Good Food Initiative,' the project supports various initiatives such as Community Cook It programs, food workshops, shared cooking community lunches, a kitchen equipment library, and the provision of healthy meal bags for emergency support at the community larder. Additionally, the project raises awareness about the numerous benefits of consuming real, local food and advocates for waste reduction campaigns.
