Outdoor Well being for Teens – Locally from August 2019

Outdoor Wellbeing for Teens

Beginning 13th August, Haddo Country Park will host a series of fortnightly sessions to help build confidence and resilience in teenagers.

There’s no ‘down-time’ for teens, their worlds have become huge in terms of stimulation, but often tiny in real world experience – it’s no wonder they struggle to develop the coping mechanisms needed to deal with everyday life.

We at Haddo Country Park have teamed up with two amazing practitioners to offer outdoor sessions designed to calm the mind and give younger people permission to switch off from electronics, expectations, judgement (from others and of self) and just be. The first session will run the week before the schools go back, so anyone who may be worried about returning to school, or simply wants to learn some coping mechanisms in a calm and beautiful setting, can come along and feel welcome in a zero expectation environment.

This is a collaboration between Haddo Country Park and two experienced mental health practitioners: Gillian Watt of ‘AndBreathe’ and Agnes Bruce of ‘Wellbeing with Agnes’. Gillian is an educator and wellbeing facilitator. Agnes is a qualified mental health nurse and mindfulness facilitator.

Sessions are for young people currently in S1-S6.

Cost per session: £10 – £5 (sliding scale based on ability to pay). Discounts available for sibling groups.

A meeting will be held at Pitmedden Hall at 7pm on Thursday 8th August to discuss the Bonnyton Farm Planning Application for 64 houses.
Many of you will remember taking part in Community consultation events at the beginning of this year. The aim of those events was to capture views and ideas, to set priorities and to create a shared vision for the area. A report has been compiled entitled “Imagine Udny” which includes lots of your exciting and ambitious ideas. You can find a copy here https://udnycommunitytrust.org.uk/imagine-udny/ or request one from the Udny Community Trust Office.
Before the community can decide on the next steps regarding “Imagine Udny”, there is a more pressing matter to focus attention.
Aberdeenshire Council is scheduled to make their decision regarding the Bonnyton Farm development on 3rd September.
The aim of the meeting on 8th August is to discuss the community response to the planning application and to allow enough time to convey that response to Councillors before they sit down to make their decision on 3rd September.
