Renew Ripon – Wellbeing Walks for Mental Health Awareness Week

Mental Health Awareness Week 2024 runs from the 13th -19th May. The theme this year is ‘Movement: moving more for our mental health.’ To raise awareness of looking after our mental health and to focus on this theme, Renew Ripon will be running additional sessions during the week to include wellbeing walks. These will be in addition to the usual Monday lunchtime and Tuesday evening Renew Ripon spaces. The Wellbeing walks will be as follows:

Wednesday 15th May 11am-12.30pm. Meet at Holy Trinity Church by the Renew Ripon flag. The walk is easy to moderate and will include a walk to Spa Gardens and the Market Place to take in the knitted decorations. There will be a brief mindfulness reflection by the Holy Trinity wilding area, followed by coffee and cake in the Arches.

Thursday 16th May  6-7.30pm. Meet at Holy Trinity Church by the Renew Ripon flag. The walk is moderate to challenging. Please consider your own ability as this is a slightly longer walk and may include uneven terrain. The walk will return to Holy Trinity Church and will include a brief outdoor mindfulness reflection along the way.

All adults welcome.

Holy Trinity is Going Wild!

Our re-wilding area is starting to blossom and as you can see from the picture, we have a number of different flowers appearing.  Next time you are at Trinity, have a look, but be careful where you tread!  Also, an advanced notice that at our next Messy Church on June 8th, we plan to have a barbecue and an environmental theme, building bug houses, bird tables, and maybe a hedgehog house too!  Keep the date free.  For more information about our Environmental focus take a look at our web page here:  Environmental Matters
