Meet the Team
Hi, it’s Alice, Aimee, and Jacky, we work in Barton and Brigg to deliver activities that matter to you and help you stay connected with your local community.
We enjoy speaking with you about how you look after your health and wellbeing.
To look after our own well-being, we prioritize self-care and enjoy daily walks with our pets, particularly Aimee who enjoys walking her dogs, Vinnie, and Reggie.
Did you know the Visit North Lincolnshire website is packed with great walks?
We are all keen listeners and are eager to hear what you have to tell us about your community.
Hi, it’s Alex and Becca here, we work in the Scunthorpe North area. Combined, we have been working in local communities for four years, we are very passionate about delivering positive activities. We are very approachable, and we love hearing about what matters to the you.
To look after our wellbeing, we both enjoy taking walks and exploring the local open spaces. Alex prioritises healthy eating, while Becca surrounds herself with animals and practices positive self-talk.
Hey, it’s Pauline! I’m a community wellbeing activator based in Scunthorpe South, and I’m here to help you stay healthy and connected to your community.
I’ve been working with communities across North Lincolnshire for the past three years, and I absolutely love it! Meeting new people and hearing about the positive lifestyle changes you’ve made is one of my favourite things to do. I also often reflect on the five ways to wellbeing and highly recommend them as a starting point for people that are just starting on their wellbeing journey.
Hi, we hope that you are well, Carol and Katie here, your community wellbeing activators in the Isle of Axholme!
We’ve both been in our roles since 2020 and absolutely love it! We enjoy meeting new people and coming up with fun activities that promote wellbeing while being inclusive and welcoming to all.
For our own health and wellbeing, we love taking walks and exploring the beautiful surroundings. Carol likes to walk around her neighbourhood, and Katie spends time with loved ones and enjoys the stunning green spaces around North Lincolnshire. We love measuring our weekly activities against the UK’s physical activity guidelines and always track our progress.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our team, please take the time to see what we have to offer.
Where can you find us?
Times of our sessions are available on our Live Well page. Though, generally we do have several locations such as community hubs that do not change.
Our community hubs are based in Brigg, Barton, Scunthorpe North, Scunthorpe South and the Isle of Axholme. Activities can also be found in various community venues.
Looking to Develop an activity that is not there?
If you feel that there is a need for a certain health and wellbeing activity in your community and you would like some support in its development, the development officer that is attached to our team would be happy to discuss this with you. Please contact Harry Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work alongside teams that can also help you with your health and wellbeing. If you want to quit smoking or maintain a healthy weight, the Healthy Lifestyles Team can offer you support. Alternatively, if you want to be more physically active, the Active Communities Team provides a wide range of physical activities throughout North Lincolnshire.
