Galashiels Rotarians are holding their annual family fun day in the Public Park on August 23 (noon-4pm).
There will be something for everyone – bands, bouncy castles, sumo suits, novelty sports such as wellie throwing, and various stalls. One of the stalls will be from Borders Healthy Living Network. Nichola Sewell, health improvement lead with the joint health improvement team, met the Rotarians, pictured, to explain the network’s role. It is recognised that some areas of the Borders are affected by poverty and inequality, which affects health and wellbeing. The team works in partnership with people in these communities to develop priorities and build on what works.
