    Wellness Hub April 18th 2024

    We are having more people attending, and delighted to see that we have some regulars who enjoy the session.

    This month as Guest Speakers we had Kate Kenning and Even Reay talk about the Aged Care Packages, Social Support Package and “the Shed’ The presentations were well received as there is a need for information on these topics. Thank you to Kate and Evan giving up their time to present.

    Kate Kennings, Social Support Services.
    Evan Reay, Burnside Shed.

    The seated chair exercises with Instructor Clo from Support for Life are a big hit and enjoyed by the participants and The Rotary club of Burnside Volunteers.

    The lunch again was delicious and many compliments from the group, thank you to Peter Fowler.

    Ruby Balmer from the city of Burnside came with a photographer, Andrew for photos for the City of Burnside magazine ‘Focus.’

    There was a post on the City Burnside facebook page about the Wellness Hub, thank you Ruby.

    This event would not be possible without the volunteers who help put it all together. Thank you to S. Girke, S. Rockliff, J. Rockliff, P. Higgins, J. Caddy, and P. Fowler.
