As the Government have advised to avoid mass gatherings and maintain social distancing, many events are being cancelled and postponed.
Radio Wey is therefore suspending this Health Events page for the time being.

Health and well-being in Spelthorne
Cycling for Health
The Spelthorne Council Cycling for Health scheme was launched to encourage residents to improve their health by taking up cycling. The scheme is free and aimed at adults, offering guided rides of around 7-12 miles during the week.
To join the rides, you need:
- your own bike - this needs to be in good condition and well maintained
- a helmet is strongly recommended
- comfortable clothes and footwear
- a spare tube for the size to fit your bike
- a puncture repair outfit, including tyre levers and a pump is also recommended

Details can be found at https://www.spelthorne.gov.uk/getactive or contact Leisure Services on 01784 446433.
Walking for Health
Spelthorne Walking for Health Scheme aims to improve health and fitness of local people, especially those who are not physically active and want to become more active. A short registration form must be completed before your first walk (contact your GP before starting to walk if you have a health condition), to receive a form by post contact Leisure Services on 01784 446433 and bring it along to your first walk to hand to a walk leader. Please bring any medication you may need with you (eg inhalers) and let us know if there are any changes to your health. Wear comfortable shoes with good grip and support and loose fitting clothing, as this will allow you to move freely. Long trousers are recommended in case of nettles/thistles. Bring waterproof clothing in case of rain. Please note our walks are for adults only. If there is a café or pub nearby, leaders and walkers often stop for a drink and a chat after the walk.

Meals on Wheels
People of all ages, who find it difficult or impossible to prepare a daily meal can benefit from Meals on Wheels. At least one hot, nutritious meal a day is very important for healthy living. Spelthorne Meal on Wheels will deliver a hot, tasty and nutritious meal for up to seven days a week straight to your home between 11.30am and 2pm (weekend and bank holiday service is provided only to those who are most in need).
Meals can be provided for short periods of time (eg in the event of illness or when somebody who normally provides a meal is on holiday) or can be provided on a long term basis.
Hot meals consist of a main course and pudding. There is a varied menu which includes vegetarian options; however special health and dietary requirements such as diabetes and soft diet meals are prioritised.
