Recreation and purposeful activity are key to a healthy lifestyle

Belonging is a natural human need and vital for mental well-being. Being part of a community can have positive effect on your mental and physical health. Connecting to a network or community will lead to more socialisation, support and a sense of belonging. Griffith supports this in multiple ways, through clubs, societies, facilities and community activities.

They will talk about religion if you want to talk about religion, but if you don't talk about it, they won't either.
