You’re invited to celebrate Men’s Health Week, a national event recognised from 11 – 17 June.

During the week, Australian communities and organisations are invited to put on events to promote the health of men and boys.

This year’s theme ‘men and families: making healthy connections’ explores the different ways families support the health and wellbeing of men and boys, and the positive contributions men and boys make to their families.

Mornington Peninsula Shire is encouraging local men that live, work or play on the peninsula to come together for a special ‘Men’s Health Fest’ event at Civic Reserve in Mornington.

Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said the event will provide an opportunity for local men to “take part in sports activities, meet local service providers and share lunch while having a yarn.

“The health of our community is a high priority for Council and this event is a great opportunity to get active and involved in your community”.

Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Committee and Seawinds Ward Councillor Antonella Celi said “this day is about bringing men together to share in an active and inclusive program that encourages optimal standards of health and wellbeing and strengthens community connections and support”.

Participants will also be treated to a special presentation from guest speaker Craig Harper – Men’s Health advocate, exercise scientist, University lecturer, AFL conditioning coach, radio host, TV presenter, writer and business owner.
