Pursuing healthy living in Clarence

ENJOYING a healthy lifestyle and having a sense of wellbeing are common goals of many Clarence residents and these positive choices will be celebrated at the annual ‘Living Well in Clarence’ expo.

Held on Saturday 4 November at Rosny LINC, people of all ages and abilities will have an opportunity to learn about and interact with the wide range of community services currently available.

This year, there will be a special focus on men’s health activities.

Highlights will include interactive and virtual reality displays, a V8 Supercar, vintage cars and motorcycles on display, plus a free barbecue and live entertainment.

There will be more than 30 stalls including local produce and children’s activities.

Chair of the Clarence Community Health and Wellbeing Advisory Committee Alderman Heather Chong said being involved and connected with the local community encouraged a better lifestyle.

“We all know that good health and wellbeing is integral to leading a fulfilling life,” she said.

“Through work, life and leisure we need to take care of each other, our communities and our natural environment.

“In Clarence, we strengthen and improve the physical, mental, and social wellbeing of the community, taking into account both individual and community needs.

“The Living Well in Clarence expo gives residents a chance to discover and interact with the many and varied services available to them in and around our area.”

Clarence City Council is working with event partners the Warrane Mornington, Clarendon Vale, Rokeby and Risdon Vale Neighbourhood Centres, the Tasmanian Health Service and LINC Tasmania to bring this free event to the community.

Living Well in Clarence will be held at Rosny LINC on Saturday 4 November from 9.30am-12.30pm.
