The H.A.P.P.Y. Project

The Happy Project

The HAPPY Project, funded by the People’s Health Trust, aims to meet the needs of isolated and lonely people in our area as well as some of the villages. It is hoped that if funding is available we may be able to extend the project further into other Wayland villages in the future.

Loneliness and isolation is high on the radar at the current time, there are items on the internet each day dropping into my mail box, it is quite difficult to know which path to follow to try and meet people’s needs.

What do you think? Do you have any ideas that you would like to see take place and would like to become involved in? Would you like to be a volunteer and help someone who may be lonely by encouraging them to join one of our existing groups and make new friends thus bringing a little light into their lives?



Current Activities:

The Games Group meets in Watton Library every Friday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 come along and join in a game of Draughts or Dominoes or perhaps you fancy a game of Scrabble or Monopoly.

The HAPPY Social Group now renamed Watton Active Social People (WASPS) is not just for Watton folk any one can join in! They meet sometimes in an afternoon and sometimes in an evening. Evening meetings are held at The Hare and Barrel. Watch out for posters in The High Street informing you when the next meeting is taking place, it will be in January.

The Family Art and Craft Group currently meeting in Great Cressingham is also going to be meeting in Ashill, watch this space for further details as well as Facebook, Streetlife, Breckland View and the local papers.
