Do you want to find groups and support in the community that might help you improve your health and wellbeing? You can find lots of local support from charities to social groups in the Health Connections Mendip Directory.
At Health Connections Mendip we are always looking out for ways to help strengthen our community and our own health and wellbeing. We asked a local artist (and Health Connector) Hannah Carding to design us a heart image that people could colour-in to make their own and to display in their home and windows. We’d love to fill the community with hundreds of hearts.
Hannah designed us two heart illustrations, one with people that represent our community and one that represents the natural world around us. We have created a black & white and a bright, coloured format.
The black and white image is great for all ages to colour-in. Colouring-in is a great low-pressure activity. There is no right or wrong way to colour-in a picture. It’s an easy way to relax away from phones and screens. It is very easy to do and the end results are an attractive design.
This is a project that all ages can join in with; it could be used as a conversation starter for children about what community is. The picture can be created to send to someone you haven’t seen for a while to let them know you are thinking about them.
We hope that people take enjoyment not only from creating the picture but from seeing it around the community and sharing it with others. If you’d like to share your image with us use #CommunityHearts across social media.
The images are available to download and print here
