Countesswells sponsors Aberdeen’s first Health and Wellbeing Festival

20th January 2020

Countesswells is proud to sponsor the inaugural Aberdeen Health and Wellbeing Festival. The festival, to be held on Saturday 25th January at Robert Gordon University,  will host guest speakers Dr Zoe Williams, an ex-Gladiator and resident doctor on This Morning, who will discuss the importance of remaining active; Alex Johnstone from the Rowett Institute will talk about busting diet myths, and Louise McCullough, the last woman standing on SAS Who Dares Wins, will be discussing resilience.

Visitors will have the opportunity to hear from a variety of experts in health and wellbeing, try out different types of exercise workshops on offer throughout the day, as well as learning about other small steps to improve your general health and wellbeing such as plant-based cooking, skin care, and mindfulness. There will be over 60 stalls to explore from various local business and organisations including Sport Aberdeen, Mental Health Aberdeen, The Treatment Room and Foodstory.

Countesswells is delighted to support the event which encompasses much of the values Countesswells holds close. The future new town will encourage wellness and outdoor activity as a way of life and has been designed with the provision of outdoor community space as a priority.

Residents can take time out of their day to get close to nature with ease as pedestrian, cycle and equestrian paths connect every corner of the community to the neighbouring three woodlands: Countesswells Woods, Hazlehead Woods and Foggieton Woods and Cults Burn. Countesswells’ community orchard and a Play Scotland endorsed play park allow the town’s smaller residents to enjoy play time in a variety of different settings.  

The town’s location, close to the city but surrounded by greenspace, makes finding the right work life balance a breeze. Residents can avoid the stress of city living, and the stress of long commutes with Aberdeen city centre only a 15-minute drive away. Countesswells also makes working from home easy with super-fast Wi-Fi, spacious homes with room for comfy offices and the businesses hubs of Kingswells and Westhill only a short drive away.

Whether you’re looking to move to a community founded on the wellbeing of its residents or simply want to learn how you can improve your lifestyle, the wellness festival has something for everyone.
