Last week was Mens Health Week and it serves as a reminder for men to think about their general health. It does not matter how young or old you are, there are always aspects of your body and mind that you need to keep an eye on - depression, heart, weight, and don’t forget your mate might need prompting too. We have a fantastic health centre with many services so access to advice is not an excuse. Helpful websites are www.beyondblue.org.au (especially Dr Ironwood!) and www.andrologyaustralia.org
School holidays are just around the corner and Council is joining with Latrobe Council to offer a variety of activities from horse trail riding, to Zumba, lots of different craft sessions, pottery, board games, toy making, table tennis, golf, tiny Tae Kwon Do and the Fishing and Water Open Day. There are costs involved but every effort has been made to keep the price down as much as possible. Contact Chris Clark at the Council for details 64912500.
Join us tonight for the Council meeting to hear about rates for the coming year. 7pm Council Chambers Sheffield.
