Beat the blues with Wellness Week

Open Today

09:00 - 18:00

December is the time for indulgence - cosying up at home with a box of chocolates and a glass or two of wine or a steaming mug of hot chocolate. 

Then January 1 hits, life returns to normal and we're more aware than ever of the impact our festive feasting has had on our bodies. 

Don't worry. Join us for our Wellness Week from the 22-27 January for a week of activities focussed on mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. 

We'll be joined by some of our community partners who will be delivering workshops, health checks and even some tasty treats to get you motivated for the new year.

Tuesday 23

Need some motivation to get active? Head down between 9am-6pm and try out one of Plymouth Argyle Football Club's smoothie bikes - get cycling and enjoy a delicious fruit drink! 

Wednesday 24
