Maintaining your physical health


One thing that the pandemic has highlighted is the need to take care of ourselves and those we are close to.

Along with more specific government legislation and guidance, there are things we can all continue to do help limit the spread of the virus:

  • maintain at least 2m social distancing
  • wear a mask in enclosed public areas
  • wash or disposing of masks, tissues, gloves etc safely
  • avoid touching eyes, mouth and nose
  • frequently wash hands with warm soapy water for 20 seconds.

There are also things that we can do to boost our health and wellbeing and to be more prepared for the future whatever it brings. Find out more by following these NHS links:

The Director of Wellbeing and Safeguarding has been experimenting with a new cookbook. “The first recipe I tried is a flat bread, with baked beans mixed with rose harissa and a little grated cheese on top. You can add spinach and an egg. Tasted delicious and spiced up the beans. A quick lunch time meal.”

For further ideas, we are pleased to be working with two organisations, one based in South Northants and the other in Bedfordshire, that are passionate about sharing advice on cooking in a way that promotes health, is affordable, reduces waste and above all is fun.
