Live Well Tasmania Update

The yoga is still very popular, with all four weekly classes mostly full, contact Mark if you want to be put on the wait list. There will be a one week break during the second week of school holidays (the week of the 15th of July), then Mark will be running a 10 week beginners course.

The Film Nights have been a real hit, with both nights being booked out in advance. The first film, The Truffle Hunters, was accompanied by a three course Italian meal, and we were treated to Paul and Frank’s musical talents singing Santa Lucia. The June film was Yesterday, a musical romantic comedy, with a three course English dinner. On the 27th of July, we are showing the film Artifishal, which is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. The film will be followed by soup, and a discussion about the film, with a possible guest speaker (watch this space!).

Tim is continuing his fortnightly games night, all welcome, to be held during July on the 5th and 19th of July.

We have finished phase one of The Right Place project, and are very happy with the progress made so far. Deb has been very busy talking to lots of local businesses and community groups about how they can help connect people to services.

We also recently finished the Neighbour Day Social Backyard Makeover project, thanks to Deb, Leigh, Cheryl and Geoff! Huge thanks to Healthy Tasmania and Relationships Australia for funding our project, which included the purchase of a battery operated whipper snipper. Now that we have successfully completed one social backyard makeover (helping people who have trouble managing their backyard- or front- yard, with morning tea), we will look for other opportunities to do more. It’s a great way for people to feel more connected.
