Becoming healthier and more active is often on the top of people’s to-do lists when going back to work or school — but sometimes it’s hard to get started.
Mitchell Shire Council’s 2018 Health and Wellbeing Expo is just around the corner and is the perfect place for people to kickstart their health goals. The free expo will be held at Kilmore Memorial Hall on Saturday, February 10, from 10am to 3pm.
It will include more than 40 exhibitors. There will be a range of activities on offer including healthy cooking demonstrations, tastings and recipes, health checks, body composition scanning, reflexology sessions, reiki scans, mini tarot readings, fitness competitions and giveaways.
Mitchell Shire Mayor Rhonda Sanderson said the expo was the perfect chance for residents to discover some of the great products and services the council, local businesses and community groups offered.
‘‘The 2018 Health and Wellbeing Expo will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase council’s services and these businesses all in the one location and it will be a really valuable event for those people in our community who are keen to improve their health and wellbeing,’’ Cr Sanderson said.
‘‘We know that keeping active has so many benefits, not only physically, but mentally. I’d encourage all residents in Mitchell Shire, no matter their age or wellbeing goals, to head along.
‘‘There’ll be plenty of opportunities to try out some healthy activities as well as chat to industry professionals – it might be just the kickstart you need to start your wellbeing journey.’’
The council is also giving away a NutriBullet (RRP $169). To enter, visit the events page on the Mitchell Shire Council Facebook page. Terms and conditions apply.
