Formby Choral Society Autumn Concert

7.30pm 18 November Our Lady of Compassion Church Formby

Haydn - Nelson Mass
Zelenka - Missa Beat Purificationes


FCS Autumn Concert 2017An exciting concert - one huge favourite, and one completely unknown!

The Nelson Mass is generally considered to Haydn's greatest choral composition. We will be performing it in the original scoring of trumpets, timpani, organ and strings. Although Haydn subsequently added other wind parts to it, under pressure from a publisher, this scoring is beautiful and exciting.

The Zelenka work has only been performed once before in the UK, and we had to purchase the right to use the scores produced for the Czech choir who have made the only recording. It is a fabulous work!

Take control and Self Care for life

Take control and self-care week-long campaign

Dr-CaudwellServices and schemes available in Sefton to support residents to take control of their health and wellbeing are highlighted during a week-long campaign (13-19 November 2017) from the borough’s two NHS clinical commissioning groups (CCGs).

NHS Southport and Formby CCG is celebrating Self Care week with a series of video stories focusing on the ways people can look after their health, as well as some of the schemes and services to help them to do this, by giving them new skills and information about taking better care of their physical and mental wellbeing.

Speaking of the campaign, Dr Rob Caudwell, chair of NHS Southport and Formby CCG and local GP, said:

“The video stories featured on the CCGs’ websites and social media are an excellent way of highlighting how people can treat themselves and look after their own health and wellbeing.”

Sefton residents are also being reminded that one of the quickest and easiest ways to get advice on self-care is to visit any high street pharmacy. Chemists can provide expert help and advice about caring for minor illnesses and ailments, along with healthy living.

 

As well as the regular support people can access from their local pharmacy, 17 across Sefton also offer Care at the Chemist, which ensures more vulnerable residents who do not normally pay for their prescriptions have quick, easy and free access to medicines for range of minor illnesses and ailments without the need for a doctor’s appointment.

Embracing self-care is all about the little things people can do every day to live well and be healthy. Being active, eating healthily and learning when to treat common ailments without the need for a doctor’s appointment are all ways to embrace self-care.

Dr Caudwell said:

“There are so many easy things we can all do to help ourselves, such as keeping active, eating well, stopping smoking and limiting alcohol to recommended levels are all important in helping us maintain physical and mental health.”

The video stories featured on the CCGs’ websites and social media during Self Care week  highlight the range of help and advice available at local pharmacies in Sefton, the support for older residents to help them prevent injuring themselves due to falls at Active Lifestyle’s Active Ageing group, the methods and techniques residents can adopt to look after their mental health and wellbeing and much more.

The video stories will be posted every day through self-care week on the CCG’s website at www.southportandformbyccg.nhs.uk and Twitter at @NHSSFCCG.

More information on how everyone can use self-care to improve their health and wellbeing is also available on the NHS Choices website at www.nhs.uk and from the Self Care Forum at www.selfcareforum.org.
