Healthy first birthday

Healthy first birthday

The program aims to support the wellbeing of the community by encouraging uptake of healthy lifestyles and providing a mobile face for the services and expertise available at the City of Melville’s LeisureFit facilities.

Healthy Melville includes a variety of programs and services that help residents achieve their lifestyle goals.

The City will also celebrate the conclusion of its Active in the Park classes for the summer period, with the program to reconvene in spring.

More than 2500 people have participated in Active in the Park classes since November last year.

The anniversary party will include free activities for children, free healthy snacks, face painting, balloon sculpting and free fitness passes, prizes and giveaways.

Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said Healthy Melville enabled staff to get out and about in the community promoting healthy lifestyles.

“With our free fitness classes attracting around 100 people per class it shows the value this initiative has offered our community,” he said.

“Healthy Melville breaks down barriers for community members who might want to participate in group fitness but may not feel confident attending a class at a centre.”

The anniversary party will run from 9.30-11.30am this Friday.
