Connection - connecting people with organisations that bring more wellbeing into their every day lives Activation - a community gathering that will in itself activate new associations for all the community. Environment - showcase lifestyle changes that can help the environment. Exercise - it's for locals so we're anticipating most attendees will walk there. By using the park & hall we'll be supporting them by paying hire charges & enabling people to see what can be done in the spaces. A number of local arts groups will be showcasing their work & encourage local start their own artistic pursuits Environment is one of the wellbeing themes of the event and we will have talks and stalls from Junk Jodie, Zero Carbon Guildford, CTK Recycling to educate about environmental measures visitors can implement straight away

Burpham Wellfest is an all-inclusive event offering free access to activities for all in order to promote the wellbeing of every individual & the community at large. As such it will be a leveller for those who cannot easily access wellbeing and redress the balance in the borough due to which Burpham is a neglected area in the borough. As a FREE community event it will support those in need of help to access emotional support, educational input, experiential learning & more . Some of the charities we will be supporting work with job seekers and the wellfest will be a forum for them to access and help people in need By bringing the community together we'll be encouraging new connections and forging new bonds between local people and the organisations bringing wellbeing to them. The culminative effect of this will be more care & compassion across the community The day of wellfest will be an enjoyable day in itself & so have a positive impact on the emotional wellbeing of those there.
