Central Coast Council is celebrating World Health Day with a brand new event, showcasing the healthy living, nutrition, food, wellness and happiness made possible by the lifestyle available to residents on the Central Coast.
Industry expert, personal trainer and well-known women’s fitness influencer, Sally Matterson, is the official ambassador for the inaugural ‘Live Well Central Coast’ and will share her knowledge on modern exercise methods and nutritional secrets for a healthy living at the Live Well Central Coast event being held at the Gosford Waterfront on April 7.
Council Unit Manager, Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard, said the new event will give the community access to a number of different health, fitness and nutritional experts that will inspire them to look after their minds and bodies.
“We are truly lucky to live in such a beautiful place with many different opportunities to get outside, get active and look after yourself,” Cannard said.
“Like many people in our community, I think health and nutrition is very important, so bringing a new event like this, with guest speakers, fitness demonstrations, workshops, activities, information stalls and more to our region is quite exciting.
“There will be five event zones with five different stages that focus on the various components of healthy living, and we invite the community to head down to the Gosford Waterfront, join a workshop or class, meditate, eat at many of the healthy food stalls, connect with local businesses and experts, and just take some time to look after you,” Cannard said.
Council Mayor, Jane Smith, said this year’s World Health Day theme celebrates universal health coverage for everyone, everywhere.
“World Health Day occurs on April 7 each year, and is aimed at focusing worldwide attention on important aspects of global health,” Mayor Smith said.
“It is important to think global and act local and we are certainly doing that with this new event for the Coast, focussed on community health and wellbeing,” she added.
This new event complements other Council initiatives such as the various health and wellbeing workshops we hold throughout the year at our Libraries and our ‘Fit for Life’ campaign, which promotes active and healthy living for all ages and abilities across our Leisure Centres.
“We will continue to promote healthy living here on the Central Coast and ensure our sport, leisure, recreation and aquatic facilities, and our open spaces, are well maintained and activated for the community to enjoy,” Mayor Smith said.
Live Well Central Coast will commence from 10am.
