A survey has been commissioned by the Gwent Strategic Wellbeing Assessment Group to provide each Public Service Board in Gwent an insight into wellbeing. The survey – The Happiness Pulse tells a story about a place.
The survey is launching across Gwent on Monday 15th January the day recognised as Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year for many with people’s moods having been affected by their post-Christmas finances, the bad weather and the long wait for summer.
Residents are encouraged to fill in a simple online survey by 28th February. The survey will provide individuals with their own happiness score and hints and tips for happiness.

The Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015 has led public services in Wales to think long-term, work better with people and communities and each other, look to prevent problems and take a more joined-up approach. Public Service Boards across Gwent will be working together to gain an insight in to the well-being of Gwent residents. The survey is an innovative method to create a picture of well-being in Gwent.

The organiser of Abergavenny Featival of Cycling, Bill Owen, has contacted us to say that “Grosmont has again been awarded a major cycling event on June 23/24 2018, a lot due to the support of the village in making such a success of the summer cycling festival in 2017. Don’t take our word for it but see the village and what the riders have to say about the support Grosmont give to the event in 2017 on YouTube.”
