- Community Wellbeing in Shurdington - 


Community wellbeing is very important to us at The Bell. We believe it's essential that we use this lovely space not just as somewhere to come for a great night out, but also to help people live healthier lives, to support people who have a lot going on and may be in need of a bit of TLC or support, to provide a safe space for people whose mental health might not be so good at the moment, and to provide opportunities for people who may be feeling isolate or lonely. Times are hard for lots of us at the moment and money is short, but there is an amazing amount going on in the village and we wanted to make it easy for everyone to find out what's happening. 
So we have worked with the Rev. Susan Cooke from the parish church, and Wendy Lovett from Beauty and the Teacup to put together a list of everything we know about. This is a first attempt, so if you know about something that you think we should include, please email community.thebell@gmail.com so we can update the list. 
We all hope you find this useful, and if there's anything else you'd like to see happening in Shurdington that would improve your wellbeing, just let us know
