General Manager, Luke Johnsonsaid “Being active can be as simple as a regular walk with friends that helps both your mind and body. It doesn’t mean you have to be great at sports; it’s about getting moving, taking control of our health and being positive about your wellbeing.”

“These sessions are supported by the Wollondilly Health Alliance and highlight the importance of working collaboratively to improve the health and wellbeing of our community.”
