Council has partnered with community groups, sporting clubs, gyms, fitness instructors and residents from across the Shire to develop the five-week Active Golden Plains ‘Spring into Summer’ program, to be delivered across Golden Plains from Monday 19 September to Friday 21 October.
The Spring into Summer program will offer a range of physical activities and wellbeing events across the Shire, delivered by experienced local health, fitness and sport professionals with options suitable for all ages, interests and fitness levels. The program allows community members to explore new ways to move, with a range of different activities that encourage movement and social connection.
The timetable features more than 150 events, with one-off and weekly activities including tennis, cricket, taekwondo, tai chi, cardio drumming, fishing, pickleball, walking, boxing, mums and bubs classes and more.
There is a wide range of activities available for children of all ages, including a Kickstart Kids karate class from 5.30pm each Wednesday throughout the five-week program in Teesdale for $5, as well as tennis programs suitable for juniors in Grenville, Meredith, Bannockburn, Inverleigh and more.
A number of walking groups will also be held throughout the Shire to encourage community members to get out and about and get moving. Groups will be held in Smythesdale, Dereel, Bannockburn, Rokewood, Berringa and Inverleigh and there is no fee to join.
For those looking to try something new, the timetable includes activities such as weekly cardio drumming sessions in Ross Creek, weekly pickle ball in Smythesdale, alongside Pétanque, fishing and disc golf sessions.
