WILLOUGHBY RESIDENTS LEARN TO LIVE WELL AT FAIR

In spite of the weather the Willoughby community really turned out to learn how to live healthier, more active and better lives at the inaugural Live Well Day celebrations at Chowne Hall Willoughby on Sunday 5th March.

Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney, said it was great to see so many organisations coming together to educate and inspire local families.

“To address rising rates of ‘lifestyle’ diseases in Australia, and here in Willoughby, we really need to empower people to make better decisions regarding their health at the grassroots level,” said Keynote Speaker Michelle Chevalley Hedge.

The Live Well Day event got everyone thinking and talking about their health and provided locals with access to a range of professional advice, while enjoying a fun day out with their families.

Stall Holder Fiona Carter said the local families who attended the event were keen to find out more about diet; exercise and improving health standards.

“There was a constant crowd at the live demonstrations of pilates and self defence with people wanting to watch and learn about the activities.”

Chiropractor Dr Louis Jen said the free spinal screenings were a hit with people of all ages, with many reporting having experienced some form of back or neck pain in the past month or so.

“We checked the posture of a number of people on Sunday and saw quite a few cases of Posture related problems,” Louis Jen said.

“When you bring together local businesses who share the same passion for health and wellness it can only impact the community in a positive way.” said Event Co-ordinator Nicole Te

At the end of the day there were all up 10 prizes that were donated by local businesses and our sponsors. We were very grateful for their donations and those who attended and were lucky enough to win one of these prizes were just as grateful.

Live Well Day Willoughby would not be the event that it was without the contributions from our sponsors such as Kylie Norman from Acorn Press; Willoughby Hotel; Billabong Health Retreat and Golden Door Health retreat from Hunter Valley. As a final note we wish to thank the following businesses that were involved on the day, Studio 84; Uncoil Pilates; A Healthy View; Vt1 academy; Kuringai Gai Yoga; Arbonne; The Bean Team; Top juice and Complete Health Chiropractic. We are already planning for an even bigger event to bring to the community next year.
