What's on in Herts?

Head to Hertford Castle for some seasonal fun this autumn. Take a breath of fresh air whilst taking part in the children’s autumn trail, snap a photo in front of the seasonal display, and explore the castle rooms and themed basement on the open day (Sunday 31st October - 12pm - 4pm). The castle grounds are open from 6.30am to 9pm. This is a free self-guided trail event.

It’s easy for us to pass on COVID-19 or flu viruses without knowing. This winter there are two essential vaccines you’ll need to protect yourself and your loved ones. Some people may be eligible for both the flu and the COVID-19 booster vaccines. If you’re offered both vaccines, it's safe to have them at the same time. It’s also fine to have them at different times.

What Our Participants Say

Jamie (7)

We got a lot out of the online sessions, it really helped us to make some positive changes to our eating habits. I liked the idea of having the quizzes and polls as you still felt really involved, and both Jamie and I had lost weight after just 6 weeks.

Jake (15)

The online programme was run brilliantly. Informative, interactive and interesting. We all found it helpful and picked up useful knowledge for life! Jake has lost 11kg and he looks and feels so much better! Thanks BeeZee Bodies for giving him a lifetime of skills to keep this going!

Chloe (9)

BeeZee Bodies is brilliant! It's a fun way to learn about healthy eating and I will remember the things I've learned for years to come. There are things my family and I do every day to help us be healthier that we wouldn't have done before BeeZee Bodies.
