Thirty five clubs and organisations gathered in the St Lawrence Hall, Laurencekirk to promote their activities as part of the Laurencekirk Medical Practice’s Patient Participation Group’s Health Event.
The theme was “Making Laurencekirk the healthy centre of the Mearns” and initially focused on the sport and fitness clubs.
However, it was soon realised that the less physically active leisure activities were just as beneficial to the health of the community so all were invited to attend.
Ninety organisations have been identified so far and it is hoped to produce an up-to-date directory very soon to assist both residents and new arrivals to the area find something attractive to occupy their leisure time.
The committee were delighted with the support they received from both club representatives and the public and were encouraged to repeat the event in the future.
