Well, what a crazy couple of months its been since a New Year’s resolution turned into reality. WREn began as a simple idea to get like minds together, support those with an interest in natural health and mental wellbeing and develop an alliance which could be promoted as a group. Within a few weeks, it was registered as a community interest company, had a small management board selected from around the local area and was ready to go!
Two and a half months later and I’ve met so many wonderful people in the area, all passionate about the same things. Some of these boys and girls are right at the beginning of their training, others have practised for years and have a devout following. But what has blown me away has been their love of all things natural, enthusiasm for helping others and eagerness to join up with the many kindred spirits coming out of the woodwork!
In less than two weeks our first event will test the water and gauge whether there really is an appetite for what we hope to offer in the Strangford Lough and Portaferry area. Classes, workshops, walks and a marketplace of goodies will be on offer over the weekend of March 23rd and 24th. The programme and booking links are available on the events page.
If you are unable to get to the festival, maybe you can help us with our survey This half dozen questions only takes a few minutes to answer but will help us decide on the way forward for the company. Your help will be very much appreciated – and not only that, but emails will be entered into a prize draw for a gift basket of natural goodies.
As you will see from the rest of the website we’re not short of ideas! However, we want to get it right and make sure we do the best for our friends and the local community. I’ll report back to you all after the festival is over and the survey is complete – in the meantime, if you want to know more or have any suggestions or comments to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you!
