Broomhouse Health Strategy Group – May Update

Broomhouse HSGOn Sat 4th June a fabulous day was had by over 3,000 people at Altogether In The Park, a Community Celebration Event held every two years in Sighthill Park.  With the help of 12 of our fantastic volunteers and a huge pile of free fruit from our suppliers, we had three different stalls in the Fit & Healthy Zone Marquee.  At the Fruit Faces Table – where kids were able to make a fruit face on a paper plate, and then enjoy eating it – we had over 210 clients!  At the Smoothie Table, where you could choose from a whole range of fruits to design your own smoothie, we had over 130 clients!  At the Baking Table, using table top ovens, 32 batches of easy yoghurt cakes were baked by children and their parents, using the yoghurt pot as a measuring cup.  We also had two highly successful Ready Steady Cook Demos to help highlight our simple cookery classes that are being held in the area.  A fantastic day, with lots of new clients interested in our services, a great result!
