FROM dancing to massages, there was a something for everyone at the fifth annual Living Well in Clarence Expo, held at Rosny LINC in November.
Hosted by local actor and radio presenter, Jane Longhurst, this year’s event featured free health checks, a “chill out” zone, games, reflexology, art, music, games, informative talks, a free barbecue and wide range of healthy treats.
Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said the event was a great success with around 1,000 people in attendance.
“Living Well in Clarence aims to raise awareness and promote aspects of good health and wellness for all ages and abilities,” he said.
“It also gives key services and groups the opportunity to come together, network and promote what they do.
“This expo was an ideal opportunity to launch a new and exciting website, ‘Live Clarence’, with much fanfare by a flash mob of dancers.
“We want this dynamic website to be the ‘go to’ place for information, resources, events and activities to help residents get healthy, active and involved in our community.
“I thank the organisers, services and groups, as well as our wonderful master of ceremonies Jane Longhurst, for delivering a very successful event.”
The Live Clarence website can be found at www.liveclarence.com.au and gives community groups the chance to promote events and activities for free that are open and accessible to the community.
