Keeping Busy With The How Are You Team

Keeping Busy With The How Are You Team

Published on Monday 26th February 2024 by Charity Green

We thought we’d share a few of the things the How Are You team did to keep the winter blues away by getting out and about, being active, volunteering, learning, getting creative and staying connected. Here are some of our highlights.

Kathryn (How Are You Cambridge) visited Chesterton Bowls Club in Cambridge – a busy club that’s open seven days a week. She enjoyed it so much she’s going back for a coaching session!

Susan (How Are You Peterborough) keeps mentally and physically fit with her latest passion – karate. She visited Oubatori Karate Club in Peterborough last year to create a webpage for How Are You Peterborough and loved it so much she now goes every week. Here she is in her yellow belt about to spar with other club members.

Jack (How Are You Fenland) is all about coffee and creativity. Here he is at the Creative Fenland live hub event held at Shedders and Fixers. Jack spoke about How Are You Fenland whilst making flowers that will be used in garlands worn by the donkeys at the Wisbech Rose Fair on Saturday 29th June. Look at the gorgeous flower he made!

Ollie spent his January either at the Hobby Hub in Yaxley & Farcet or at the Men’s Shed. He loves keeping busy by making, doing, fixing and mending – and that includes the How Are You Cambridgeshire & Peterborough websites.

Beth (How Are You East Cambs) kicked off her year with an NHS Health Check and learning about ways she can support her physical health – you can find out more and watch it on video on this blog post.

Trish (How Are You Team Manager) got stuck into #REDJanuary by cycling every day on her exercise bike and stayed accountable with daily progress posts on social media – look at all those ticks in January…what an achievement!

Charity (How Are You South Cambs) loves the great outdoors and tends to prefer quieter, less sociable things in the winter months. As well as walking her dog every day, she visited Wandlebury Country Park just outside of Cambridge.

Sally (How Are You Hunts) says she is like a stick of rock and has community printed in her DNA. In January she helped local food redistribution charity, Food for Nought, with some of their admin tasks. She also helped Ollie run the Men’s Shed and Hobby Hub, when she wasn’t distributing donated linens and catering equipment to local good causes on behalf of the Community Interest Company she founded. She says “I volunteer because it helps me feel like I am helping people. Doing good for others makes me feel better.”

If you are stuck for inspiration for things to do or places to go, please take a look at our websites. We aim to show you what to expect when you go the first time, so taking that first step to try something new is slightly less nerve-wracking. Even if you just want to stay busy at home, we even include live online activities and events. Our goal is to have something that will appeal to everyone, wherever you are in the county and whatever you age or interests.

If there’s something that you enjoy doing during the winter months that we should feature on our websites, please drop us a line via this link.
