Staff Clubs and Events
At Hardenhuish staff can benefit from a number of Clubs and events, such as:
Why not join your colleagues in the Hardenhuish Running group! Whether in person, or even virtually, the support from others may help you to achieve new goals, take time away from the screen and spend time with your colleagues.
The group is open to all members of staff of all abilities.
Join the curry club and try out a new restaurant each term. It is a great way to meet colleagues and talk to staff you don’t normally get the opportunity to see each day.
Friday Football Club
A great way to finish the week and spend time with colleagues. All members of staff and all abilities welcome.

Hundreds of community groups, run by volunteers, are still set up across the county, providing invaluable assistance to those who need it.
Keeping fit and Healthy
Use relaxation techniques- Having a bath, listening to music, taking the dog for a walk. Try to set aside some time for activities which help you to relax.
Develop your interests and hobbies– Why not try something new? Take up a new hobby or try an activity that is totally different.
Make time for your friends and family- Taking time out to be with family or even chatting to friends via zoom or teams. Try to relax and spend time with loved ones to take your mind off work.
Find balance in your life: Try to focus your energy on parts of your life other than work. Friends, family or even hobbies. It isn’t easy, but it may help to spread the weight of the pressures and make everything feel a little lighter.

Get enough sleep.
