One You Haringey Health Day

Health and fitness were top of the agenda at the One You Haringey Health Day at Chestnuts Park. Our One You Haringey team were there to introduce a range of free health services to all of Haringey’s residence. Throughout the day, members of the public were able to learn about health and fitness as well as take part in a number of activities including football training, a tennis taster session, and a boot camp style exercise class.

The community event on Saturday, July 1, also featured stalls from many local services such as Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, Haringey Walks, Haringey Recovery, stART Haringey, Haringey Advice & Shine Haringey. Sabrina Kerr, Health & Wellbeing Manager at Reed Momenta, said: “One You Haringey would like to thank all the residents that came along to the Health Day.

“It was nice to see so many resident taking the first step to making a change by getting involved with the activities available on the day, and speaking with the One You team about making small but significant changes to their lifestyle. “We will continue to work with the community and the residents of Haringey to make Haringey Healthier.”

Haringey Council Cabinet Member for Finance and Health, Cllr Jason Arthur, said: “It was great to be at the Health Day and get a taste of all the different activities and support on offer in the borough.
