A health club has created a new outdoor space designed to refresh the mind, thanks to a reopening grant.
Energise Pentney Health Club used a £7,000 funding given by West Norfolk Council to install its new Revive Garden.
Hannah Watfa, who owns the health club with husband Tan, said: “Not only did the Refresh Reopen grant give us the opportunity to create more useable outdoor space for our members and guests, it also allows us to raise awareness and funds to further the incredible mental health support Norfolk and Waveney Mind offers.
“Being outside and connecting with nature is a huge contributor to feeling good – this space allows everyone to enjoy more of our beautiful countryside location, and our huge Norfolk skies.
“Our focus is truly on wellness in both body and mind and this grant has allowed us to further that ethos, so we’re extremely grateful for the borough council’s support.”
So far, more than 140 businesses across the borough have benefited from £667,000 in Refresh Reopen grants.
Graham Middleton, deputy leader at West Norfolk Council, officially opened the new garden and said: “Owners Hannah and Tan have created a peaceful and beautiful outdoor space for members and guests to enjoy.”
Alex Wiseman, partnerships coordinator at Norfolk and Waveney Mind, added: “We are so grateful for companies like Energise Pentney Health Club supporting us.
“We, as a charity, survive solely on the generosity of donations and fundraising.
“The space is wonderful and I look forward to visiting, sitting in the garden and reconnecting with nature once more.”
