Locality Celebration for Annandale and Eskdale

A Locality Celebration event for Annandale and Eskdale is being held on Friday January 25 by the Safe and Healthy Action Partnership (SHAP) at Ecclefechan.

The theme for the day will be based on forward planning and having good conversations; recognising and acknowledging challenges and ensuring people feel confident and supported in having those conversations.

Similar to the one held last year, the purpose will be to celebrate achievements, share good practice, hear about on-going and future developments and to work together to further develop and deliver on plans in relation to enabling better health and well-being outcomes for people in Annandale and Eskdale.

The event will be appropriate to all staff wherever they work and will also be of interest on a personal level. A more detailed agenda will be circulated once it is all confirmed.

To register a place please email Faye at by Friday December 21.

The event will take place at the Kirkconnel Hall Hotel in Ecclefechan and is likely to be all day.

There are also plans to have a marketplace at the celebration event and given the theme it is hoped to include:

  • A ‘Good News’ story board – with snippets/pictures of things that have happened or are happening across the locality
  • Taking care of ourselves/taking time out
  • Mental Health Team
  • Forward Planning
  • SHAP News
  • Update on new Housing Developments
  • Occupational Health Services

To send a good news story, share your work or suggest any other ideas please email Faye at the above address.
