Wellbeing morning for staff
We were pleased as punch to be able to hold our first in-person Zest Fest health and wellbeing event for the first time since 2019… and what an event it was.

During the pandemic we moved all our Zesty perks for staff online but with restrictions a thing of the past (we hope it stays like that) we couldn’t wait to get back to a real-life event.
Our staff are gifted the time to attend a morning of all things wellbeing, hosted by our partners at Pontypool Active Living Centre.
During the morning staff could take part in arts and craft activities, which are great for the mind and switching off from the day-to-day stresses of life. We had people making a mug cosy, a felt chick and wire flowers.
If staff fancied something a little more active our partners from Newport County and Dragons Rugby provided fun challenges throughout the morning. There were taster exercise classes provided by Torfaen Leisure Trust including: Pilates, spin and go tough. Badminton, table tennis and squash proved very popular with our staff.
Our Relaxation Zone provided mini-health checks, massages and reflexology as well as full use of the spa facilities. It certainly was a fun packed morning, and we can’t wait to do it all again next year.
