Bray's "Positivity Stones" helping spread good vibes

“Positivity Stones” which aim to promote positive mental health and wellbeing are being used to drive home this important message on Bray beach.

The temporary ground graphics are one of a number of simple actions being implemented across the town to promote the “Unity in the Community” message in these uncertain times

The first positivity stones were added to Bray beach during Connect Ballywaltrim's 24 Hour Youth Marathon last summer which was hosted by Connect Bray Neighbourhood Youth Project.

Adam Burke, from the Connect Bray Neighbourhood Youth Project said: “This new local mental health and wellbeing campaign will brighten up Bray with inspiring words and aims to encourage good positive vibes within the community during this difficult time.”

The initiative is supported by Connect Bray Neighbourhood Youth Project, Be Well Bray, Comhairle na nÓg, Wicklow County Council and Bray.ie.

Cllr Anne Ferris, Cathaoirleach of Bray Municipal District said: “The new ground graphic installations are currently being installed and can be seen throughout some of the main public spaces around the town.”

Infectious disease pandemics like coronavirus (COVID-19) can be worrying.
