Residents encouraged to get the ‘feel good’ feeling.

Renfrewshire residents are being encouraged to come along to a free event and get the ‘feel good’ feeling.

Feel Good Renfrewshire will take place in the Lagoon Leisure Centre, Paisley, on Tuesday 25 March.

Residents can drop in anytime between 3pm and 6pm to find out about activities in their area and even try some out.

The event is being staged jointly by Active Communities, Renfrewshire Community Planning Partnership and Renfrewshire Council.

Councillor Iain McMillan, convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Social Work, Health and Wellbeing Policy Board, said: “Feel Good Renfrewshire will spread the message about all the things available to help your health and wellbeing, and this launch event is a great start.

“Singing, dancing, exercising, gardening – there as all things that make you feel good. Sometimes, you just need to know who else nearby is doing these things so you can get started.”

“Renfrewshire is packed full of clubs and groups for people of all ages, abilities and interests. There are also plenty of agencies in the public and voluntary sectors providing advice and support. This is an ideal opportunity for people to drop in at the Lagoon and find out for themselves.”

Renfrewshire Young people turn out for council careers fair

Visitors on the day could also speak to staff from training providers, and organisations including the NHS, JobCentre Plus and Skills Development Scotland.

Council staff were on hand to dish out information about their apprenticeship scheme, youth employability hub and £8m Invest in Renfrewshire programme.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Mark Macmillan popped along to see the event for himself, and said: “The council will do all it can to make sure young people have the best chance possible of finding work.

“The aim of Futuresfest was to give them the opportunity to speak to a range of people who can help them get to where they want to be in life.

“Whether it be further education, apprenticeships, access to training or help finding work, there was something for everyone on offer.”
