Active & Healthy

I have invested significant Divisional funds in the Active & Healthy program because I think it is so vital and positive. There is a massive range of free and low-cost activities many operating in Nerang and Pacific Pines. Some feature activities in the new program include:

  • Free tai chi class in 20 locations across the city
  • Senior fitness and rehabilitative classes for those with mobility concerns or illnesses
  • Free kids after school program and activities for three to five year olds and their parents
  • Mums and bubs fitness classes and stroller groups

You can check out the program on-line here: au/community/active-healthy-program-27969.htmll or grab a copy at your nearest library, or call my office on 5582 8400 and we will send you a copy.
