Activities for all ages will be on offer at the 2016 Royal Welsh Show with a joint presence from Powys County Council and Powys Teaching Health Board.

Show-goers can enjoy a packed programme of events in the Twr Brycheiniog building on Avenue E, immediately next to the main ring.

Speaking ahead of the show, Councillor Barry Thomas, Leader of the council, and , Viv Harpwood, Chair of the health board, said: “We are pleased to be joining up for this year’s show and we extend a very warm welcome to all those attending the event.

“We already provide a range of services together and this is great way to demonstrate how we are working to improve health and well-being across the county.”

Come along and find out what’s happening; take part in a hand hygiene challenge, and seek advice on how to quit smoking. For those less stable on their feet, learn some great tips on reducing falls, as well as having your walking stick checked.

In the children and family area, youngsters can enjoy supervised arts and crafts and meet and greets with Sam, the Team Around the Family mascot. You can also talk to staff about how to become a foster carer.

Tourist attractions, events and activities in the county, as well regeneration projects, will also be promoted to visitors.
