National Healthy Eating week at the Grove

As part of the BNF Healthy Eating week running from the 12th to 16th June 2017, The Grove Experience decided to dedicate their weekly team meeting to promoting the importance of eating a healthy well balanced diet.

We Provided a platter of delicious seasonal and exotic fruits for our team and trainees to enjoy. They were also encouraged to complete a food diary for one day during the week where all food and drink consumed was documented as well as all physical activity.

This was followed up by a discussion to see where changes could be made to improve their diets and lifestyles to make them healthier.

8 Tips for healthy Eating

  1. Base your meals on starchy carbohydrates – they should make up over one third of the food you eat.
  2. Eat lots of Fruit and vegetables – at least five portions a day and make sure you choose a wide variety.
  3. Eat More Fish – at least two a week include at least one portion of oily fish such as Salmon, mackerel , Trout, Herring, fresh tuna, Sardines, pilchards.
  4.  Cut down on saturated fats and sugar – such as hard cheese, cakes, biscuits, sausages, cream, butter, Lard, Pies, Fizzy drinks, alcohol, sugary breakfast cereals and pastries.
  5. Eat Less Salt – No More than 6g a day for adults. Remember that about three quarters of salt we eat is already in the food we buy such as breakfast cereal, soaps, breads and sauces.
  6. Get active and be a healthy weight – set some time aside for physical activity, walk instead of driving where possible, try something new, swimming and cycling are great ways to keep fit and can be great fun.
  7. Don’t Get Thirsty – Drink plenty of fluids to stop you getting dehydrated. The Government recommends  SIX to EIGHT glasses of water a day.
  8. Don’t Skip Breakfast – Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!!.Breakfast like a King – Lunch like a Queen – supper like a pauper.

Have you always wanted to be a hairdresser ?

Always wanted to be a hairdresser?

Love the Hair & beauty industry?, Interested in trends and fashion?
Want to know what its really like to work in a salon without committing to a class room based college course?

 

 

Experience Education Academy’s  ‘Cutting Club‘ at The Grove Experience hairdressers in Grove Road in Eastbourne could well be your answer..

 

 

 

The Cutting Club.

The Cutting Club is an after school club for 14 – 15 year olds who while still at school would like to develop some hairdressing experience. The club runs on a Tuesday between 4pm – 6pm and is open to anyone over the age of 14
(application forms are available from the salon or can be downloaded from our website).

The aim of the club which is free to join and free to attend, is to give year 11 pupils a taste of what the hair & beauty industry is about without having to commit to a full time job or college course.

 

The club run by Sally Deal at the Grove Experience salon covers all aspects of hairdressing, members will get to experience some cutting, perming, colouring, styling, hair-up, smoothing, extensions all at a basic intro level. This allows them to make informed decisions about their future careers while still at school.

The club starts out covering the basic skills working on each other then on to head blocks and then later bringing in models to work on.

For anyone who completes the full programme and stays up to finishing school, they would have a good ground knowledge of hairdressing, which would give them a great head start if they then choose hairdressing as a career.

If they chose to apply to join our full time education NVQ level 2 programme they would be given first option on future positions within the company putting them at the front of the queue.

As a company we do not employ anyone out of college and we are not alone in this so this club gives any potential job applicant at any salon a great advantage when applying for what are now limited salon positions for apprenticeships.

Applications are being taken now for the next intake. Send your application in to the salon or pop in to see Sally.
