Riverside are highlighting the importance of looking after our wellbeing with events and activities to promote Mental Health Awareness Week which runs from the 9-15 May and local businesses have rallied to support.
Events kick off with a ‘Sunset Supper’ on The Terrace at the Red Lion Lawn on Tuesday 10th May where guests can enjoy freshly cooked paella from Valencia Supper Club, sangria from The Terrace bar, and live music courtesy of Eight Ray Music. ‘The weather forecast for next week is looking warm and sunny so it will be a lovely evening on the Terrace next to the river. We are looking forward to welcoming new and existing supporters’ said Amanda. The evening is kindly being sponsored by KJ Smiths Solicitor.
