Healthy Start cafe re-opening

The Brechin Healthy Start Café is re-opening on Thursday, August 16 and will be ready to welcome mums and babies after the school summer break.

The café, which is part of Angus Community Health Partnership’s Healthy Happy Communities Project, is to be held in Cathedral Hall, Brechin running on Thursdays between 11.30am and 1.30pm.

The aim of the group is to provide a comfortable, relaxed and informal environment for pregnant women and parents with babies.

From the minute they discover they are pregnant, women are welcome to come along to the café which provides a comfortable space where they can chat together and share their experiences.

The Healthy Start Café also provides a healthy snack and, over the coming weeks, there will be different activities planned for mums and mums-to-be as well as a range of health and lifestyle topics for information and discussion.

This free café is open to families, partners, friends, babies and older children are welcome.

Rachel MacFarlane, Healthy Happy Communities Project Worker said, “The school summer holidays have flown in and we are very much looking forward to welcoming mums and mums-to-be to the café.

“The café is a great way for mums to get together and relax.

“We are also looking for volunteers to help run the café and to help with babies while parents participate in activities so if anyone has a couple of hours free and would be interested in supporting this group I would really like to hear from them.”
