You know what it’s like when you’ve organised a party or an event, and you are never quite sure how many people are going to turn up? So it was for our recent Taster Day – but we didn’t have to worry at all! At one minute past ten, the first couple arrived to have their free taster sessions of everything that was on offer – and it went from there! The therapists who were offering free tasters were kept busy all day – visitors enjoyed acupuncture, reflexology and different kinds of massage. It was easy to spot those who had received treatments – they floated out of the door with smiles on their faces! The talks proved popular as well. Helen Malik talked about food intolerances, a common issue nowadays, especially with so much processed food in the typical diet and hidden “nasties” in many so-called natural foods. Yaso Shan demonstrated her skills and experience with herbal remedies and even made up a herbal remedy to ease arthritis during her presentation! Judy Sharp talked about the various ways in which past life traumas can trigger issues in the current lifetime, including relationships, health and money. It was all food for thought! We were delighted to see so many old friends there, and to welcome new friends to Vinings for the first time. Because Vinings has been going for 25 years, some people said “I used to come to you years ago, how lovely that you are still here!” while others said, “we’ve only recently moved to the town and we hadn’t found you until now” – so it showed that by getting out and about at The Orchards and the Town Day, we do meet new people! If you knew us ages ago, or if you have only just found us – come along and say hello!
We are looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming visitors for our Taster Day this coming Sunday, 21st September. It coincides with a Family Fun Day in the Broadway in Haywards Heath so we are hoping people will make a full day of it! What could be nicer than having a whole day of fun – as long as the lovely weather holds!
Last year, Haywards Heath Town Day was miserable and rainy. This year couldn’t have been more different: the sun shone all day – it was almost too hot in the afternoon – and whole families came to Victoria Park to enjoy everything that was going on. And, of course, the day was brightened by sirens, lycra and top-class cyclists in the Tour of Britain Cycle Race. Team Vinings was out in force too, with various therapists manning the stall throughout the day. It was great to meet friends old and new, and it was an ideal chance to invite even more people to our Free Taster Day next Sunday, 21st September.
This year’s Town Day is being held in Victoria Park on Saturday 13th September and we shall be there to say hello to friends old and new! You can find us close to the model railway – just follow the track and you’ll see our tent! You’ll be able to enjoy free mini massage sessions and talk to the various therapists who will be there during the day. It’s a good opportunity to have an informal chat about any aspects of natural healthcare, to ask those questions that have been bubbling under or just to find out more about us. We’ve been offering a wide range of natural therapies and treatments for 25 years now – but in a growing town like Haywards Heath there are always newcomers who don’t know about us, so meeting people is always something we are keen to do. The Town Day is a great day for all the family – whatever the weather! So do come and join in the fun, and stop by to say hello.
